Hey! I came across your Mat video on youtube and it was amazing. I just want to let you know no one can be like you! You're just fabulous. I love your work so much. I wish you were in Perth, Australia.
This silicon mold is very soft and flexible and can easily go from as high as 450 degrees to the freezer without affecting the mold. Kathy's Tip: Be sure to make your gumpaste ahead of time (by adding Tylose Powder to your Fondant), wrap it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes so it can firm up slightly. Then place it into the mold, and it will come out much more easily, without stretching. To help the ends meet at the joints, cut the rope on the angle that exists where it twists, near the end.
