Things You Should Know:
1. Do not fill the mould to the top of the blade that rises up around the mould cavity. The mould should be filled to the top of the cavity which is level with the lip and the point where the blade starts to rise from the surface of the mould, people naturally will fill a mould to what they think is the top. If you fill to the top of the blade, the resulting piece will be too thick and not the way it was designed.
2. Roll out fondant, sugar paste to the appropriate thickness, dust lightly with corn flour and put dusted side down onto mould. Press with palm of hand and fingertips forcing fondant into all the details. The blade will already start to cut the fondant. Take a light rolling pin and roll across the top of the mould.
3. Do not press hard. Light quick strokes work best & enables the blade to perform perfectly!
4. Once the fondant has been trimmed & the excess is taken away, press your fondant again quickly, then place your finger on the side of the blade & press it sideways towards the cavity & down into the cavity. This removes any little bits of fondant flashing and makes a perfect edge.
