two brands of food safe FDA approved silicone mold I use . I buy this two from Michael’s using 40-50% coupons. The box comes with two different colored component. varieties of knick knacks one may use to make a silicone mold impression :) hunt around your house for a “dish” deep enough to hold the mold you’re planning to make. It doesn’t have to be fancy, even a disposable container cover will do :) take equal amount of each silicone component, knead ...
I just posted this on facebook today and thought I’d share with all of you here. It was a trick I learned in College and still use today. It’s my first tutorial and quite simple; but, it is useful if you’ve just run out of royal icing or buttercream, lost that grass tip, want your grass a bit finer than from a garlic press or don’t yet have an extruder. Hopefully it will be helpful to a few of you. Thanks for looking. :) You only need 5 tools:■a mesh sieve■a thi...
Hi everyone! I have worked with Modelling Chocolate (referred to as M/C throughout this article) many times over the past few months, trying to find the perfect recipe, and the best ways to use it.

It has adde...

Gather your materials (add a ruler or straight edge to this list!) Knead in a little tylose powder to your coloured fondant. My ratio is 1tsp tylose to 250g of fondant. Roll ropes of fondant (now gumpaste!) to desired thickness. Keep one rope a little thicker than the rest. Here the green is slightly larger. This will help when it’s time to insert the toothpick supports. When you have all of your ropes, roll over them with a fondant smoother to neaten and to remove any finger ind...
