Yes, Melissa, I saw the links and replied to you.

I sent you a couple pictures this morning by email -- I'm also going to post on the store's facebook page to see what other hits and tricks others might have.

Thanks for asking others of "hints & tricks". I saw the two pictures of the piece you sent me. I saw the opinions of Missy or Mindy (two names listed). I will just play with them as time permits and see if they will be useful in the future.

Satin Ice is fondant, I believe.  Try Gumpaste. I haven't used these particular lace molds, but have had luck with others suing Gumpaste.  Good Luck!

If the gumpaste is good quality it shpuld break pretty easy, so pull the excess pieces of
gumapste with the top part still holding the gumpaste.
The take the top press how and push the excess gumpaste to the inside of the mold to
clean the edges.

tonedna:  You definitely know what your doing with Gumpaste!  Your cakes are incredible.

tonedna: good advice, I have been using the palette knife for years on small molds, but will try the scissors next time!!

 

Silicone lace molds make great designs for cakes & cookies.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
