I'm pretty new to gumpaste. I was wondering, when using molds, does pretty much anything work? For example, would candy molds work?

Candy molds work. It's easier to get gumpaste out of candy molds than fondant. When I've used gumpaste in a mold, I dust the mold with cornstarch. For fondant, I noticed that pam spray works better, but you have to wipe the pam spray out of the mold with a paper towel before you put the fondant in, so you don't get too much.

I actually got some really cool plastic molds at the local cake decorating store but I've seen them online too.

Hobby Lobby also has a big selection of candy molds...I've found mini seashells and fairies and big wine bottles there recently.

ive even used plastic moulds for chocolate with gumpaste, there a bit harder to work with them being so stiff, but i find if you let the gumpaste set up for 5 mins or so, then turn it upside and pop it out they keep there shape pretty well icon_smile.gif
