Are you sure you have enough tylo (CMC) mixed with your fondant? I used the freezer method recently… but did 150 hearts from a single mold, and didn’t need to use the freezer ;o)

Yes,I used gumpaste fondant mix,the snowflake has tiny rounded edges that just break off every time I try to get them out.Thanks for your reply.

Try rubbing a little vegetable fat in the mould before you pop it in. In the uk, we use solid vegetable fat called trex to help with the paste releasing from the mould.

Good luck, xx.
