I am buying the First Impressions baby mold, and was wondering if you can use all fondant instead of 50/50 fondant/gumpaste. Has anyone used only fondant in this mold? If so, how did it turn out?

Thanks for your help.

yes, you can definetly use just fondant. It will take it a little longer to dry. Set a small fan in front of it to dry quicker. I knead the fondant really good. Dust a little powder sugar on the fondant before putting in mold. then leave in freezer at least 5 min. hth

If you use straight fondant, you might try putting the mold and fondant into the freezer for 20 minutes and then try unmolding it. That often works for me in more intricate molds.
