This is a very inexpensive product to use if you wish to make your own molds.
I live out in the boonies and I don't have access to cake shops out here and sometimes ordering on line can be very costly! So if you are willing to take the time to make your own, it is very well worth it!! You can buy it at Michaels.
You can go the Amazing Mold Putty's website to learn even more!! There are videos and pictures on how to do it!!
I recently entered a cake competition and these are the molds that I made for the wedding cake entry.
Working with the putty is very easy!! You just need to plan ahead and make sure you know what you want to do. Find the object that you want to use. Then you mix the two types of putty together. You have to do this quickly!! You have only a 3 minutes to mix and mold!!! Then you let it sit for 25 minutes to set up. Then your mold is ready to use!! Also make sure that if you are going to be using your molds for sugar or food, do not use it with anything else. These molds can be used with fondant, gumpaste, chocolate, isomalt or poured sugar and to make ice!! So many possibilities.
Here is the mold that I made for the buttons on the back of this wedding cake. I should have pushed the real button into the mold a little more, but it still worked.
It was very easy making the lace embroidery for the bodice of my cake. The hard part was finding something that I liked and cutting it out!!
I used this heart shape for the brooch on the sash. I found all of my pieces at Michaels. This piece was to be used for a real necklace but I thought it was the best fit for my design. So I made the mold, but needed to cut the loop off after it was removed from the mold. I also put one on my topper.
I used this shape to go between all of the petal indentations. I first made the heart shape and let dry. Then I used super pearl luster dust mixed with lemon extract to paint the shimmer on.
Here is a picture of the whole cake. Thanks for looking!!!
