This past weekend I had a cake where the bride wanted the look of lace appliques on a fondant covered cake - I debated piping, debated cutters and debated molds. I finally chose to go with the latter and I am SO happy I did! They were incredibly easy to work with. I had a nylon sack of corn starch that I dusted each mold with before pressing a rolled out piece of fondant into it. Then I dusted the backside with a smidge more cornstarch so that I could really press the piece into all the crevices without it sticking to my fingers. Then, I flipped the mold over & I slowly peeled off one edge of the mold and the rest came out smoothly. I was able to cut the molds apart to make various pieces to attach to the cake to add variety. SO cool!
AThat looks lovely! Good job! I have a lace covered wedding cake in two weeks and I'm looking forward to it. My favorite cake to date, the cake in my avatar, had lace covering it too. (Also made with lace molds). I think they look so pretty.
Wow, that is beautiful!!! So delicate and lacy looking!!!
So, I have been considering doing one of these for a sample. My question is-do the molds have to be removed before the cake can be cut?
Nope...they are just like adding fondant decor to your cake. You are also able to make the molds fairly thin...Once I got the hang of it I realized just how thin you can make them.
just saw it at cake camp in Henderson...MM was there...pretty cool!!!
