Has anyone tried the new onlay molds? I'm reaaaally interested in the Moroccan lattice, but am wondering if anyone has used them and liked them?

I saw these too and am very interested as well. $30 each is too much for me right now though. I wish they were cheaper. ****sigh****

I also saw the video, it looks awesome.  Can't wait to try these new onlay molds.  Please post your pics when and your opinion on the use of these molds as stated earlier by sixinarow.

I got the diamond cut, triple drop string , overlapping drop string and the double wedding ring. Can't wait to play with them!

AI got mine last week and LOVE them. Just follow the directions on the video and you will have no problem .i used the string drop ribbon one on my last cake ( it's the baseball wedding themed cake)and it was so simple. I don't do math and with these you don't have to! Wish I had stock in them! I will eventually get them all.

jANdUNLEY do you have any pics of your finished product using the onlays...would love to see it. 

JanDunlevy Posted 2 Jul 2013 , 4:55pm

AI am on my iPad right now and can't get this site to import my pic. It is in my gallery and it is the baseball themed wedding cake. I used the mold on the top tier and it is the drop string mold.

KarenK55 Posted 2 Jul 2013 , 5:05pm

Just tried looking and I did not see it.  Your other cakes are awesome. Am I missing something? Is your wedding cake picture on in photo albums on CC?

Love it-JanDonley.  Thank you shanter.  

JanDunlevy Posted 3 Jul 2013 , 1:17am

Thank you shanter! I have the worst time with this site and the changes. I can't get anything to post and I can't comment on anyone's photos when I am on my Ipad. Finally home on my desktop now. Hope all of you that are thinking about purchasing these molds love them as much as I do!

My friend has done the Moroccan pattern & loved it - She used it on buttercream - it was kind of messy but the molds performed really well

sixinarow Posted 13 Aug 2013 , 10:22pm

Updating this post...I bought the damask and moroccan lattice onlays. They shipped me the wrong order, so I only have the damask right now. I'm having some problems getting all the little "extra" pieces out of the mold before applying it to the cake. Any tips??

JanDunlevy Posted 14 Aug 2013 , 1:53am

AI use a weeding tool but a hat pin, Dresden tool or anything with a slight point works. Just be cautious to not puncture your mold.

Elcee Posted 14 Aug 2013 , 2:02am

In addition to what JanDunlevy said, try dampening your fondant a little more with whatever adhesive you're using. I may be one of the few people who aren't in love with the onlays. I don't hate them, just don't love them and had trouble with them. Unless I had a customer who wanted a very specific pattern, I wouldn't buy any just to have in my tool chest.

sixinarow Posted 14 Aug 2013 , 4:55pm

I think I may have added too much tylose to my fondant..and maybe had it a little too thick. After playing around with it last night, here's what I ended up with. :) I did the top layer last, it definitely looks better than the bottom!! Glad it's not for a client or the bottom would need to be re-done!

KarenK55 Posted 14 Aug 2013 , 5:54pm

Have not purchased the "Marvelous Mold Onlays" , but I was wondering could you use a little cornstarch so that the fondant doesn't stick to the mold to assist you in getting the design you want....out?

sixinarow:  OMG  that is as beautiful as the highly stenciled cakes.  Had to look on the internet.

http://marvelousmolds.com/onlays/moroccan-lattice    It is elegant, the red flowers POP, beautiful.

sixinarow Posted 14 Aug 2013 , 9:59pm

AThank you! I love how the mirrored design turned out, hopefully I'll get to repeat it on a client cake in the future! ;) I'm excited to get the lattice, creative juices are flowing right now!

JanDunlevy Posted 15 Aug 2013 , 8:23am

AThat is gorgeous! Love the contrast of the black, white and red and the way you used it. Great job with the molds.

MBalaska Posted 17 Aug 2013 , 3:46am

What will they think of next?  This mold for a  gumpaste TIARA is amazing, just watched the tutorial video.

I've never used gumpaste. I can see that there's a whole world out there to explore.

I was wondering how many people who have the onlays have tried them on buttercream.  I have a client who wants the chevron pattern, but not a fondant base.  Thoughts?  Maybe if it's real cold, it won't stick?

xirxa Posted 27 Aug 2013 , 4:41pm

where I can see those molds?
