How to Use Fondant Molds


Fondant is a creamy paste made of sugar and water that is most often used to decorate cakes and other confections. Fondant can be colored, flavored and even molded in a variety of ways. Most fondant molds are made of silicone, which makes removing the finished decorations easy. There are two types of fondant molds: those that imprint designs, and those that make three-dimensional fondant pieces. It is fairly easy to use either type of fondant mold.

  • Clean and dry your fondant molds thoroughly in warm water with mild dishwashing liquid. Let the molds air dry; if there is any wetness on them, your finished fondant pieces will not turn out properly.

  • Add coloring, if you desire, to your fondant before using it with a mold. Aside from painting details, you will not be able to color the fondant without ruining its design after releasing it from the mold.

  • Get your fondant to room temperature, and ensure that it is pliable before molding it.

  • Roll out your fondant to ¼-inch thickness, if using a rolled fondant mold. Gently pick up the rolled-out fondant and place it on top of your mold. Firmly press it against the molding plate to transfer the design, and then lift off fondant and use it immediately for decoration.

  • Read the instructions accompanying your cavity fondant mold to see how much fondant should be placed inside of it. After inserting the correct amount of fondant, close the mold or firmly pack the fondant inside. Gently slide the fondant out of the cavity mold, ensuring that you do not squeeze it and distort the design.
