Hi, Does anyone have any advice on how to lift or pick up a delicate fondant mold to place on side of cake without it coming apart or tearing before I have it in place? It is about six inches long and two and a half inches wide. A "happy birthday" word mold. Thanks!! Martha
I like to cut out trim molds a day in advance, seal them in a zip lock bag and let them firm up a bit before applying to the cake. For a large mold, I turn it out onto a board with wax paper attached, then put another board with wax paper attached on top of it and flip it over so the back side of the molded piece is up. I let it set up for a while in this position, then detach the wax paper from the board and use it (wax paper) to lift and position the mold onto the cake. If you want to speed things up, you can set the mold in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up a little. I really hope this makes sense!
