How to use Silicone Moulds for Fondant/Gumpaste
There are so many interesting cake decorating and chocolate moulds out on the market it's so hard to show restraint in how many different ones I buy!
1.Make sure your mould has been washed and air dried before first use.
2.Using CMC/Tylose treated fondant (or gumpaste) make small balls that roughly will fit your mould cavity. With practice you will get an automatic sense of quantity.
3. Push into the mould and smooth it down, if you have too much, scrape it of with the back of a plastic knife.
4. Place flat into your freezer for around 5-10mins sometimes much longer, the time will vary depending on the size of the shape. It's also ok to leave overnight if you need to.
5. Once the fondant is hard pop them out on a flat tray lined with baking paper. Do not be tempted to touch them any longer than a quick second to flip them right side up.
6. DO NOT touch again until they are dry, especially the first 30 mins where the items will sweat from condensation, if you touch while at sweat stage you'll ruin your decorations and will need to start again. Once dry (at least over night) you're pieces will be ready to use. (In wet humid weather it make take longer)
