Rated 5 out of 5 by from @Janet's creations: I tried using the homemade fondant, but it stuck to the mold. Is this what happened to you? I plan on using the homemade to cover, but store-bought fondant for the molds. I am also adding Tinkerbell dolls to the cake, as my daughter loves Fairies and butterflies!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cake. I am extremely new to fondant and it took a couple of trys to get the technique down to my satisfaction. I tried the fondant mold for the first time and I did learn not to use homemade marshmallow fondant gum paste blend. Use the commercial fondant and gum paste. Really enjoy this mold and look forward to trying additional ones.
