Make your own molds!

I love simple, easy projects that are inexpensive and yet achieve beautiful results!!!

That's been a huge goal for this find/share/create easy, timing saving ways to achieve beautiful, clean cakes!

So, I'm excited to share with you this fantastic tutorial from the incredibly beautiful and amazingly talented Verusca Walker
Verusca has created a great photo tutorial and video tutorial on how to use left over fondant in order to create your own molds with whatever you can find around the house!!  Look at these tires!!  Making tires is now easier than ever!!  From buttons, to shells, to doll faces, purses, plastic doll toys, etc...the possibilities are endless!!!

You can also use modeling chocolate to make it even faster.  Impress your item, chill it for a second to firm up the modeling chocolate, pull it out and let it sit at room temp for a bit.  After 30min or so, start making your molded items with fresh fondant/gumpaste/modeling chocolate!!!  I've used that techniques to make zippers!!!  SOO easy and VERY cheap because you can use left over fondant!! - who cares about the colors of the molds!!

Have fun being creative!!

Thank you Verusca!!!
