  • Condition the fondant with a little vegetable shortening. Lightly dust the mold with a touch of cornstarch and shake out. Apply a small amount of fondant into the molds.

  • Use the rolling pin to even out the fondant and remove any excess.

  • Turn the mold over and gently peel away the mold from the fondant. If you have trouble removing the mold, you can place the filled mold into the freezer for just a few minutes to stiffen the fondant a bit before removing.

  • Repeat this process with both sizes of molds until several fondant spirals are ready for the next step.

  •  Remove the cut piece of fondant from the bottom spiral and place both spirals together. They should fit tight without any gaps.

  • Continue overlapping and cutting the spirals to create a panel that is the correct height and width for your cake.
  • Fill in any empty spaces to complete the pattern.
