i have a few things i need help with, if anyone can answer my questions i would really appreciate it. I am using a silicone mold for the first time, once i pull out the fondant do i stick it on the cake straight away or do leave it to dry then stick it on the cake? thank u

You can do either. Fondant right from the mold will take the shape of the cake better-if, for instance, it's going on the side of a round cake.
If left to dry for a while, they will be more sturdy and easier to work with.

so it just depends if i want it to take the shape of the cake or not, is that right? if it doesnt need to take the shape of the cake i can let it dry first, is that right? thank you for ur help

Another tip - If you are going to dust the piece from the mold, you may want to dust it before applying it. It's a lot cleaned that way

Another, another tip lol:
I had to do 150 brooches for a cake recently and I used my luster dust and dusted the moulds with it instead of cornstarch before putting the fondant/gumpaste in the mold... when they came out they were dusted and could go straight to the cake... saved me sooooo much time!

.......used my luster dust and dusted the moulds..........

That's fine but it leaves dust in the mold and sometime in the future you won't want that in it icon_sad.gif Some dusts are very, very difficult to get/wash out.

Try one, if it stretches out of shape when handled, then leave it on waxed paper for a while to air dry, a half hour should do it.
