Tiffany Charm Mold

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm making a Tiffany box cake with a bracelet coming out of it, and I need to make this bracelet. I think the best way to get a perfect charm would be to use a mold, but not having the real thing to cast the mold from, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a ready made silicone tiffany mold I can buy online?

 no i don't know where to find that and if tiffany knew where to find it  it'd be gone!

 

but if you want to go for almost perfect

 

you can easy peasy make that and print the wording out on a printer & edible paper

 

or

 

pipe it on if you incease the scale--make it bigger than actual size 

 

(i cannot pipe that small but maybe you can but I would need it bigger)

 

just roll 'snake' shapes, cut same size sections,  form into a paper chain, make a heart

 

is that what you mean

Wow that's a good chain!

Hmm, I was wanting something more precision than piping (which doesn't have the straight edges of their machine font), and more 3d than a printed image...... engraved rather than raised likepiping.

Printing a photo isnt a bad idea though.

 

I'll keep thinking.

 

Thanks,katie

hey--i got it--you need to find some old typewriter keys!!!!

 

that might work

 

but that's three different sized fonts too

 

ver tall order

 

because

 

even if you find the corrrect fonts etc

 

getting the fondant or whatever material to take the impression that crisply will also be a challenge

maybe marzipan or chococlay would be crisper

 

it could easliy come out rounded

 

and

 

piping can def have the straight edges if one is very accomplished at it

i myself tend to stay far away from such accomplishment that small  icon_wink.gif

 

oh--'nuther idea--just to help create the illusion--less than perfect but doable and close

 

so

 

make your heart charm set, pipe the lettering aside

 

roll a flat piece of fondant and cut out the same size heart but flat

 

then center a just smaller heart cutter on that and cut it out, discard the center

 

now you have an outline to place around the wording so it has the appearance of being recessed

 

again not perfect but increases the illusion factor--maybe need to make the heart a bit bigger to accomodate

 

tiffany wishes and heart thoughts for you

This is what I managed to achieve for the Tiffany charm........took ages to do the artwork for the stamp but finally got there.

If anyone would like to borrow one for a Tiffany cake, I'm selling a few spares!
