Tips for use for sugar or gumpaste dough :
1- Sprinkle the mold with a little cornstarch and tap to remove the excess.
2-Start with a pudding of dough and start flattening it in the pan. Keep the fingers of both hands sprinkled with cornstarch so that the fondant stays in the pan and does not stick to your hands.
3- Press with the fingers of your left hand, while continuing to pinch and smooth the dough in the pan with the fingers or the right hand outwards.
4- Once the mould is well filled, you can use a rolling pin to roll on the shape and press the dough firmly into the mould. Sprinkling the rolling pin will ensure that the dough does not stick to it.
5- Take a clean dry knife or scalpel, use the cornstarch blade. Place the blade flat on the surface of the mould and carefully cut off the excess dough, using a gentle sawing action. For large moulds, it is sometimes a good idea to stop halfway through to clean and dry the blade again.
For very complex moulds: It may be helpful to place the mould in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. Unmould on a dry, clean surface. The dough will be wet and sticky as it thaws and should not be touched. Depending on the type of dough you have used and the humidity in the air, the moulds should be dry to the touch within 10 to 30 minutes. Allow them to dry completely before transferring them to the cake (to be stuck on with food glue or royal icing).
6- Turn the mould over on itself and unmould gently, you can help yourself with a fine point to release the dough.
Maintenance : Can be washed in soapy water or in the dishwasher.
