    Katias Fondant Women Torso Molds
    A translucent resin 3 dimensional mold perfect for creating your own gumpaste people. Face detail is perfect. Mold includes button knobs to make sure your figure lines up perfect. Open hole at bottom allows for excess gumpaste to escape.
    PEOPLE MOLDS: Knead gumpaste to pliable. Dust both sides of mold with cornstarch. Place fondant log shape into one side of mold. Line up mold buttons and squeeze. Excess gumpaste will come out of bottom. Cut fondant flush. Insert a toothpick and press into a foam skirt form to dry. Remove from mold. Or model limbs free hand and attached with thinned royal icing, water, or gum glue. Add clothes, facial features and hair. If you have hot hands, or are working in a warm room, or are using a very soft batch of gumpaste, and are experiencing sticking, place the filled mold in the freezer for a couple minutes to firm up the gumpaste and speed the removal process.

    Use molds for cake decorating, soap making, candle making, candy, chocolate, pastillage, cold porcelain, marzipan, butter, ice, gelatin, plaster, gumpaste, and more! To create a character push mold face, lightly dust a push mold with baby powder to keep it from sticking. Next, a smooth cone shape was formed from the clay and pressed into the mold. When pulling the clay out, "Martha's" face appeared. To make the face look older, first use thick knitting needles to open the doll's nostrils. With thinner needles, open up the area around the eyes. Then, using  forefinger and thumb, make wrinkles by scrunching the face. Also add seed beads for eyes, and applied blush to the cheeks.

    by Vi Whittington
    This booklet has patterns and instructions for both adults and children, including gowns, skits, shirts, jackets, a clown suit and much more. The patterns fit dolls make from our molds #43-9410, #43-9415 and #43-9420. Although instructions given are for candy coating, the patterns can be used for gumpaste dolls also. With your imagination, you can alter the patterns from this booklet for any person you make. If you want to make a Doctor, use the groom's pants and make the rock and roll star's jacket slightly longer for a lab coat. To use for candy coating: Pour peach coating chocolate into people candy molds. Chill candy people and you are ready to dress them! Dress dolls in ‘chocolate leather (recipe in book).  Patterns for clothes included. This book makes it easy. I've done this and it really is easy and have had my gumpaste dolls for years and still in the very same condition as when I made them. Make your bride and groom to resemble the happy couple! Dress them in style to match. Unfortunately this book has been discontinued but Sugarcraft has permission to copy it for resale.

    VIDEO: 'Simply Modeling' By June Twelves, 4 times Gold Medalist in the modelling world, shares with you her innovative techniques to make your sugarpaste modelling simple. $19.99
    INFORMATION: People and fun characters are usually made from gumpaste. Make a bridal couple for a wedding cake,  make a comical character for Novelty cakes, graduate for that special graduate, etc.. Gumpaste dries very hard. You can preserve them with a non-edible spray purchased from a craft store, matte finish or glossy, depending on if you want shine or not. These can also be made using Cold Porcelain, available HERE. Ready-made gumpaste LINK.
    BASIC DIRECTIONS: Mold the person in one of the molds below, unmold and move arms & legs around for pose. Let dry for 4-5 days. Assemble with royal icing, and let dry a day or two more. Dress your figures in gumpaste clothes. Roll out, cut and secure to the figure with water. For heavier items, such as sleeves, use a thin mixture of gumpaste & water as a glue.
    IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE GUMPASTE EITHER! Marzipan (recipe) or Ready made Rolled fondant or (recipe) or even "Candy Clay" using Compound coating chocolate ...see book: "Candy People & Patterns" by Vi Whittington below for instructions. Any of these can be used for a more edible, palatable figure when great detail is not needed. Another item you could use for this is Choco-pan (Tastes just like Tootsie Rolls!).
    NEW! Gumpaste People Mold set similar to the one I used for this doll (click)


    I have been asked many times if the figures on my cakes are made from molds.

    This started me thinking, if I could make molds, from the figures I have made, how quick and easy it would be to reproduce sugar crafted figures – not pieces that look manufactured by machines. This would be a new concept in molds for sugarcraft.

    These new molds will produce figures that look hand made, making it quick and easy for beginners. The experienced cake decorator will be able to alter and adapt the finished figures for their own designs.

    About The Molds
    The molds are made from high quality silicone and will not rip or tear under normal use. Before using, wash in warm, soapy water. To dry quickly for re-use, use kitchen paper. Every mold includes full instructions giving the size of the piece of paste to use in grams and which colors to use to finish.

    Using the Molds
    Dust liberally with cornstarch, shake, then turn over and tap out excess. Check the size piece of paste you will need on the instruction sheet with the mold. Roll into a smooth ball then flatten slightly into a shape similar to the mold making it easy to push into all areas. Press into the shape. The paste should be flat and level with the mold and should not be over the edge. If you have too much paste it can be trimmed with the PME mold paste trimmer, (if paste moves when doing this you could have double imprints so remove paste and start again). Use a sawing action usually from the center of the paste to try to avoid lifting it.
    When ready to remove, twist mold slightly, turn over and flex. If you have any difficulty, see hints and tips.

    Hints and Tips

    I have found the best combination to use gumpaste or half flower paste half fondant.

    Marzipan can be used but if too soft tylose powder can be added until the correct consistency is reached.

    Choco-pan is excellent if you require a chocolate paste.

    Always dust the mold with cornstarch then tap out excess.

    If you are not getting enough detail, check that you are pressing in firmly and your paste is not too stiff. Deep and detailed areas e.g. bride’s headdress in wedding car mold can be corrected by placing a small piece of paste in first.

    If the figure is not releasing easily, check no.1, 2 & 4 above. Beginners may find it easier to divide the molds into sections i.e. the teddy bear can have the head and body molded separately and then joined together on the cake.

    Icing can be colored with paste color before placing in the mold. I like to dust the figures then paint in any detail where needed. A selection of different size dusting and paintbrushes will be useful.

    Always rub powder color well into brushes on kitchen paper, making sure there is NO loose powder before applying to figure.
    Some figures have very small eyes. The best way to color is to dip the tip of a cocktail stick into black paste colour, then touch sparingly onto face. Practice this on some spare icing first. The black paste colour should be like a thick liquid and not set. Only mark the eyes when the face has been colored.

    Alternatively the figures can be painted. Again use dust colors (not paste) and mix with isopropyl alcohol (thinning solution) for best results. Good results will not be achieved with vodka or gin. Experiment with consistency of colors and brush size on spare paste before applying.


    A cake using these dolls that I made for my daughter's graduation LINK

  • Use flesh (or Flesh Tone) food coloring LINK
  • I used real makeup for the faces
  • Insert skewers or toothpicks between upper & lower torso then adhere with a mixture of gumpaste thinned with water to a paste consistency.
  • The book that is the most help is "Instructional People Mold Booklet" LINK
  • Roll out clothes with your small gumpaste rolling pin. Cut as with making real clothes.

  • Make creases in the icing for the hair.
    CANDY CLAY   (From my message board HERE)

    Shared by Melanie Mc.     I can't remember who originally posted it (sorry, because I like to give credit to authors). I think there have been several variations posted but maybe someone else will post another one, too.

         1 lb Ivory Coating chocolate
         1/2 Cup glucose
         2 Tbs.. ice cold water

         Gently melt coating. Stir in glucose and mix lightly. Add water. Stir together (don't over mix). Cover w/ plastic wrap and allow to ripen overnight. Next day knead well, cover, and allow to set overnight.

    NOTES :  (From my message board)
    Help with candy clay.

         I'm not too sure what I'm doing wrong, but my candy clay has a lot of corn syrup after I try mixing it. I use the recipe 14 oz candy melts and 1/3  cup light corn syrup. I heat up the candy till it melted and stick it in a kitchen aid then pour in the corn syrup. Am I supposed to heat up both  ingredients and then mix it? Thanks anyone for their help!    Kanani

    When I make candy clay I melt the candy then add the corn syrup all in one pot just stir it with a wooden spoon it will come together then pour on  wax paper and let sit. Don't over stir or the fat in the candy will start to separate. Lisa

    I think that was my problem I was over stirring. It was like the corn syrup wouldn't mix in with the melted candy. Thanks so much! I'll try again.     Kanani

    I recently attended a demo at our day of sharing in Missouri and learned "milk" the clay until all the oil is out of it, I have made the flowers this  way and the old way with all the oil, I much prefer the new way. You can air brush the flowers or use dusting powders. They look like gumpaste  when the oil is removed. Try both ways, The "milked" clay does take a lot of squeezing. but you will be pleasantly surprised. Janette

    Are you talking just squeezing out the oil in the candy?  And if you are when do you do this when you make the candy or after its set? Lisa

    I'm wondering how you do that? Is there instruction somewhere or a recipe that called for how to do that? Thanks!     Kanani

    When you stir the syrup in it you start squeezing and squeezing until all the oil is gone. I will feel very stiff, When you are ready to use it knead it with your hands until warmed up or heat in microwave for a second or two. Jane

         Marzipan cooked
         3 cups sugar
         1 cup water
         4 cups ground blanched almonds

         For cooked Marzipan add the sugar to the water in a saucepan and cook until the sugar is dissolved. Add the almonds and cook it until the batter stops sticking to the pan. Remove from heat and place onto a marble slap, wooden board or a sheet pan. While still warm knead first with a wooden spatula and then by hand until smooth. Store in an airtight container or plastic bag.
