Has anyone ever used a character pan to make fondant accents. Example - I was asked to make a motorcycle cake. I have the Wilton pan but would like to make the different parts out of fondant. Do you spray the pan with non-stick spray and put the fondant in or do you use cornstarch? Any help or ideas would be appreciated. TIA


If anyone has examples of what they have done with this, I would love to see them.

If you look at my cakes, the monkey cakes are done in molded pans. I did the faces on them in fondant. You just turn the pan over,( your working on top of the pan and not in side it) roll out your fondant and then gently place your fondant on the pan and smooth it over the detail where you will be putting it on your cake. Than place it on the cake. ( make sure that you have a little buttercream on the cake first). It's very easy to do. Good luck.
