Cupcakes and Cakes
Cookie molds are often used for decorating cupcakes and cakes. The so called "rolled fondant" is well-suited for molding. Rolled fondant is a soft, pasty mass of sugar. It has a neutral taste and shows even the finest details of the mold pictures very well.
Recipe with rolled fondant
Roll fondant out to a thickness of 3-5mm, dust the mold lightly with powdered sugar and press it down evenly. Remove the mold and cut out the picture from the fondant with a pastry, biscuit or cookie cutter or a knife. Allow the molded picture to dry and then place it decoratively on the cupcakes or cakes.
- Prevent remaining fondant from drying out by keeping it tightly closed.
- Avoid excessive humidity.
- Rolled fondant can also be easily painted over or dyed with food coloring (paste/gel). This will help you achieve color tones that match your other festive decorations.
