i actually tried this today about 10 minutes after reading it... i was obviously very curious icon_biggrin.gif i tried a couple different thickness...es? ( icon_confused.gif ) and definitely the thicker the better. the thin ones definitely didn't keep their shapes well and the thicker ones did. they came out hollow and they actually looked really neat. my only question is... how to get them off the pan without crumbling them? i suppose maybe a silicone mat would keep them from sticking, but obviously sugar+heat=not so good results. anyways... here's a star i did:

I accidentally did that to gum paste i was drying for Christmas tree ornaments several years ago. ( I had an 20 month old that put everything in her mouth and figured gum paste and string safer than glass and wire hooks.) I cut them out really small and put strings through them with needle and thread, I used up all my patience doing that, so I popped them in oven to dry and it was too hot and poofed them up.Most looked cool, but the angels were my favorite. (I used the mini Christmas theme cutters from Wilton.) They stay fragile, and only had half left by the time we packed up tree. And then half again, the next year. And now maybe 1!! And I did wind up finding a couple knotted strings in her diaper, but better than hooks! (Who knew they don't digest?)

I have an 11 week old that has "diaper changes" that smell like microwave popcorn, and my mom would always ask me if I had been baking when she would come over right after one of my daughter's changes! Smelled like vanilla. Solid foods changed that quick!!

Do you think that a regular floral wire would be okay? I'm sure it would be oven safe! You could put a couple kinks in it to keep it from sliding down.

I know this thread is a couple of months old, but I refound it and was wondering if anyone had tried anymore of these little things. I'd love to see some more photos.

Isn't this the truth! This happens to me all the time... my BF is a firm believer that all pans are covered with black burned left overs. When we first started dating I replaced the ENTIRE kitchen with lovely Wilton and Nordic baking sheets only to find the next day he burned on some chicken he attempted to cook (god love him).

I'm still training him...we'll get there eventually. icon_wink.gif


Either way, thanks for sharing!
