Hi - I have been sneakily watching this thread with the idea of trying this one day, sorry I hadn't posted yet! But I wanted to chime in and say you only have a short window of time in which you can edit a post (not sure how long that actually is though). You can delete after a while, but not edit.

Hi Dayti, Welcome-Welcome-Welcome!

 

Thanks for joining us!  I posted it, read it, & tried to fix it, all pretty much bam, bam, bam.  Then I tried, on & off, right up till the little 'pen' went away.   It is some times not so important, but can be frustrating at other times.  Wish a moderator, or whatever they are called, could help.

My hubby likes your little blue cake.  Oh, and I see you are from Spain!  Have been trying for about a year to learn Spanish on my own, but no go.  Can't seem to remember anything.  Can't be my age....

This is fantastic! Thanks so much for posting this. I have been looking for ready made products to make my molds and just happened to stumble across this thread.

Sorry didn't finish my thread. Would hot sugar melt the mold? I want to make sugar glass, bottles etc.

Thanks again.

Welcome,... and you are welcome!, to use this & share it around.  Enjoy.

And don't be concerned with how lumpy & dry it appears when first mixed, it will melt down just fine in the microwave.  Cut it into smallish pieces to remelt, and it is reusable.

I feel sure it would melt the mold.  Hot sugar melts flesh off of bone!  These are made to be remelted for reuse, so , NO, it would not withstand that kind of heat.  Sorry.  I have not tried this, just a very likely assumption on my part.

Hi everyone!

 

I have started another new thread, and hope you will take time to check it out.  Yesterday I watched a tutorial on a new product called DecoGel by IcingImages, used in decorating a cake.  You know what the grandkids all say, 'Can we do it? Yes we can!'  Well, we did it! lol   Hope to see you there, Bonnie.

FYI: I used this opportunity to add a Tablespoon of water to my leftover, cut up, mold materials, instead of glycerine, before reheating it, and it did help restore the desired consistency to the mold itself!   Reheating leftover mold material in the microwave tends to dry it out over time, this is another option to correct this issue.  I am still reheating, and reusing, some of my original batches.  Have not had to throw any out yet! 

 

I finally found a receptacle of the right size to try this project.  Or so I thought!  Make sure that it does not get smaller at the top!  Do as I say, not as I did!  I had a hard time getting the doll out of the mold, so I could get the mold out of the glass!  If it had been larger at the top, I could have pulled doll, in mold, out easily.

I put reg. leftover gumpaste in bottom of glass, to size the glass to the doll, less wasted space this way.  Left about 1/2" between the paste & the top of the head.   

 

I made a cut up the BACK of the mold, so any seam, in the finished fondant/gumpaste/chocolate doll, would not be an issue.  This will allow easy removal of the finished product.

 

One doll topper is finished, and another one is in the mold.  The excess is left on the bottom to form the top of a skirt, any shape you need, once the 'doll' is removed from the mold.  Fill the mold fully, to fill all the little nock & crannies.  Squeeze just enough to close the slit in the back, forcing excess material back into the mold, or remove it as needed.  Then remove from mold to dry.  It will not dry well in the mold.  I did not spray, or powder, before putting the fondant into the mold, and they came out well, but will try them next time, just to see what works best.

As you can see, the doll 's head got a little too close to the edge while in the mold, but it has not been an issue, still holds the full pattern of the hair when removed.  Just keep your doll straighter! lol

 

I was able to get a pretty good model from the mold.  Now, if I could only paint...

 

You can move the head around while still soft, for desired effect, one is looking up, the other down.  We also have 2 different skirt top shapes.  And 1 is holding a scarf effect, the other is not!  Both from the same mold, play with it!

 

 Now you can have a totally edible Princess, or Barbie, cake.  Just put one of these on top, instead of a real doll, and it looks just as good! (Assuming you can paint! lol))  I was quite pleased with them.  Clarifying the mix before pouring will probably come in handy here, for an even smoother finish.

 

Happy playtime in the kitchen everyone!

Just wanted to say thanks blwilley I had to make some chocolate shells and read this whole thread before I started.  I could not find coconut oil so ended up using Costumeczar's gelatine mould recipe but used your technique of setting the shells (yes cleaned thoroughly first) on a bed of fondant in a container.  It worked perfectly, one thing I did work out after a couple of tries, was to spray the shells lightly with canola spray and all the ridges popped out of the mould a lot easier.  My cake was all chocolate, the shells are chocolate painted with a mixture of candy oil colours and petal dusts.

Thanks for this thread and sharing all your experimenting :)

OOOOH, your cake is terrific!  Love the shells, glad to have been of some help.  I get LouAna pure Coconut Oil in a rather large round can in the grocery store, only way I can find it, with all the other cooking oils.  Both Walmart & Food Lion carry it.  And like you, I also spray everything I am copying before pouring on the mold mix!! lol  Definitely releases a lot easier that way.   And thank you for taking the time to add these pictures!  Someday I will get brave and try some chocolate!  I have had no luck so far with ganache..., won't setup/crust for me, remains tacky???  Oh well, there is always tomorrow. :- )

 

Just a thought, I tried mineral oil once, in place of coconut oil, and it just beaded up, would not incorporate at all, but if you find something else that will work, please let me know.  I really should have tried other oils more, just never really thought of it, because the coconut oil worked so well. 

 

Ding, ding, ding... maybe I will try it without any oil?  Yeah, that will be my next project test!  Just might work.

Biwilley,
Hello I am a newbie at cake decorating and mold making and was wondering if I could ask a few questions.... First of all the update on 2/23 for the mold recipe is that the final recipe you use and does that include the clarification process that you requested from annabakescakes? I am trying to get the process down and what to use the final to practice with so I don't confuse myself with so many different recipes and methods... Secondly do you have a video on the molding process anywhere???? I see the pics but I am visual learner and I am not sure I am seeing the process in the still photos.... Please tell me if what I see is correct so far... Place object facing upward out of container pouring mold recipe in over it!!!!!!! You keep speaking of cardboard on some I not seeing the cardboard when used.,... Please if any one can help to clear my confusion I would greatly appreciated like I said just starting out and anxious to try! I love all the info in this site and I am great flu that I found it.... Thanks in advance
