Marvelous Molds Onlays ?? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Thread Starter 

Updating this post...I bought the damask and moroccan lattice onlays. They shipped me the wrong order, so I only have the damask right now. I'm having some problems getting all the little "extra" pieces out of the mold before applying it to the cake. Any tips??

I use a weeding tool but a hat pin, Dresden tool or anything with a slight point works. Just be cautious to not puncture your mold.

In addition to what JanDunlevy said, try dampening your fondant a little more with whatever adhesive you're using. I may be one of the few people who aren't in love with the onlays. I don't hate them, just don't love them and had trouble with them. Unless I had a customer who wanted a very specific pattern, I wouldn't buy any just to have in my tool chest.

I think I may have added too much tylose to my fondant..and maybe had it a little too thick. After playing around with it last night, here's what I ended up with. :) I did the top layer last, it definitely looks better than the bottom!! Glad it's not for a client or the bottom would need to be re-done!

Have not purchased the "Marvelous Mold Onlays" , but I was wondering could you use a little cornstarch so that the fondant doesn't stick to the mold to assist you in getting the design you want....out?

Thank you! I love how the mirrored design turned out, hopefully I'll get to repeat it on a client cake in the future! icon_wink.gif
I'm excited to get the lattice, creative juices are flowing right now!

That is gorgeous! Love the contrast of the black, white and red and the way you used it. Great job with the molds.

What will they think of next?  This mold for a  gumpaste TIARA is amazing, just watched the tutorial video.

I've never used gumpaste. I can see that there's a whole world out there to explore.

I was wondering how many people who have the onlays have tried them on buttercream.  I have a client who wants the chevron pattern, but not a fondant base.  Thoughts?  Maybe if it's real cold, it won't stick?
