TIPS:

  • Stretch the mold without fear so as not to deform the piece. The mold is silicone, so don’t worry, it won’t break.
  • If you don’t want to use cornstarch, you can use a bit of vegetable fat or non-stick spray. But always in small quantities.
  • Put it in the freezer for a minute, to remove it more easily without spoiling it.
  • Remember to always clean the mold very well. Remnants of fondant or other materials can spoil the following creations.
