I want to try and make the fondant fairy that's on this site but where can I get the mold for the face? and do I attach the front to just a round piece to make the head? Anybody have any ideas?

When I did the fairy on my castle cake in my photos, I made my own mold. I took a Wilton doll pick and made a mold from the face. I went to the clay section at Hobby Lobby and found a molding putty that was safe for food. I pushed the mmf in the mold and left a rounded piece in the back to look like the back of the head.

. . . you can also just use fondant/gumpaste to make your own mold . . . . . . HTH

Liis also mentions how she didn't let the mold dry properly before making the face (and that's why the features aren't very well defined) . . . so don't rush it . . . . icon_lol.gif
