I bought these and thought it would be a breeze to use...uh NOPE!!! I read the instructions, executed...OMG!! I almost threw them in the ocean! My DH was laughing at me because I was so frustrated. I am pretty new to cake decorating and I thought these would be fun...so far...uh NO!
The fondant gets stuck in the the press and when I try to get it out with and tool it ruins it...I have sprinkled some powdered sugar in it, NOPE not that either!!!!
If anyone has these and can offer some BETTER help or advice...I am all EYES ...lol I would be all ears if I could hear you...lol
I can't see your attached picture but the one bit of advice I can offer regarding fondant and press sets is to roll the fondant super thin and leave it sit for a while then turn it over and leave it sit for another while and then try cutting/pressing the piece of fondant. I found this is the only way my letter sets work for me.
I bought these also and had the same problem ended up giving them away. To much trouble.
I have considered purchasing these...so while I don't have any advice, I would love to hear more thoughts about these items and how you use them!
Have you tried coating the press with crisco?
A little advice on these presses. You have to leave the fondant rolled no less than a 1/4 " thick. Dust with cornstarch before using. Do not grease with Crisco because the fondant will stick. occasionally the pieces may not come out easily, if this happens try lifting an edge with a corsage pin.
I have both these presses and do not advise anyone to purchase them.
I have both the flower and the leaf set. I'm making 300 of the small leafs. So far to speed through them I dont use any kind of powdered sugar or anything. I press and them and then tap them on the table till it falls out. Doing it this way I dont have to worry about them getting dusty from the powered sugar or corn starch. Then if they dont have enough of the patteren on them i press them onto the purple side and that puts the pattern on alittle deeper.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
