Anyone ever make salt dough fondant molds?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
HI, I don't have any fondant molds yet, and saw a tutorial for making them out of silicone. I like that idea, but don't really have it in my budget to buy the stuff to do it until after Christmas! ( I have 4 children!) lol

But, I was wondering if I could make crude molds out of salt dough?... The kind kids use to make hand prints and Christmas ornaments for parents. There are some things I would like to have molds for to do autumn decorations and holiday baking.

Has anyone ever tried that?

I have never tried it but I did see on pinterest the other day that they made chocolate molds out of packed brown sugar. Will have to look it up and see how exactly they did it but it should work for fondant molding as well I would think. I was going to try it once I got a chance not only to keep the budget down but also then you can make molds of anything you want.

People are probably going to die when I say this (just because everyone seems to be so conservative about what is an isn't food safe) but I once used that fimo clay to make a mold.

I like the cutter idea, let me know how that works! I am always frustrated with the lack of cutters and I live in total metropolis (so it's not like they are in short supply!).

A salt dough mold is a very interesting idea. I wonder if it could be coated in a food safe wax so it would not be porous and absorb moisture from the fondant. I may have to give it a try. Thanks for the great idea!

Save your coins and in a month you'll have $10. Take the $10 and a 50% off coupon from Michaels and get some food safe two part molding clay. It releases the fondant beautifully and won't cling like Salt clay or leave an uneven surface like salt clay would. The mold you make is yours forever and can be washed.

Thanks. icon_smile.gif I'll try that too. But want to try this, too, just to see how it works. I might try using foam board instead of potatoes though. lol Breaking out of "redneck" is hard to do!
