ADoes anybody know where I can get this silicon onlay mold from? [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3278052/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
AThis is not an Onlay, it was done using the cutters that Dayti posted. If you check out Jessicakes blog she demos how to do this. She uses a wax paper transfer method. Makes it seem nice and easy! If you would prefer a mold check out Marvelous Molds, they have a similar mold. They also have great YouTube videos to demo application.
AThanks so much Would it be easier to get a neat finish with a mold? I've never used one before.
AJust get the cutters.
Thanks so much

Not for this design I don't think, it's not very fiddly. It won't be hard, especially if you use wax paper like Jessica Harris. And even if you don't do it that way, you just need a good eye or a good ruler to get everything lined up nicely. If you cut them out of fondant/gumpaste, let the shapes set up for a while before gluing them to the cake so they don't distort.

Yes. Very important. The first time I used cutters like this it didn't click in my brain to let them sit for a few minutes before moving them around. That's why in my avatar you see wonky cutouts. That, and they are not aligned.
AWhat's the wax paper trick like Jessica Harris??
ACheck out her blog,
ASorry to be a pain but where do I find her blog?
AWhat's the tutorial called?
