They didn't demonstrate the whole bottle. We watched the same video. I can't remember now, but it seems to me Shirley upon discussion the mould is in 2 parts. You tape/secure the 2 silicone moulds together, and then pour in the isomalt. But this was a couple of months ago, so kind a fuzzy on the details.
Wish I had been there June. I have made lots of one sided molds but never have tried a full mold. In seeing how they removed the mold from the bottle on Make your own molds I wasn't sure you could use it more than once.
We had a whole meeting devoted at our cake club Shirley to do with make your own moulds. Demo, videos, and a caker who used it extensively. Yes you can re-use the mould over & over, for both isomalt and fondant/gumpaste. Reason being it is silicone.
Katy Silicone Plastique holds up well with cooked syrups like Isomalt and I cook that to 375 degrees F. If you folllwed the directions from the Make Your Own Mold website there is a vdeo. But in looking at it doesn't it seem the way they peeled away the mold from the sugar bottle that you would only be able to use it once? Maybe it retains it's shape after it is pulled off the sugar but I don't quite understand it. People at the party were most fascinated by the wine bottles, thinking they were real.
Thank you Linda. Just home from the event. I cut the cakes before leaving and everyone was lined up with a plate in their hands trying to decide which flavor they wanted. Lots of "Ooohs and Aaahs over the decorations on the cakes, many taking pictures. Made me feel good.
Shirley, this one turned out to be a real winner! It's beautiful! I'll bet it was the 'hit' even over the actual wine!! =O)
lol no - didn't notice the label, excellent idea!
Re the mold - I know this company and saw them exhibiting at a cake fair in London a while back. They demonstrated the silicone plastique and I bought some then and there, I was so impressed by it. I don't know if it can be used with Isomalt, and yes the amount you would need would probably be quite expensive, but you can use the mold over and over.
You could make your own mold Katy with silicone. In fact there is a company called "Make Your Own Molds" that have a kit but it is very expensive and from what I can see of the finished mold it looks like it could only be used once, not sure though.
Shirley - I know nothing about Isomalt, so this may sound dumb. But could you use a real wine bottle as a base or even make your own mould?
Don't know if you noticed the winery label on the bottle, Cupcake Winery, I couldn't resist using it. lol
