Brooch Tutorial

Our Brooch molds are some of the most popular on the site, and here Lisa show us how to make a beautiful Tall Scroll pin.  This was one of our very first products and was a brooch that I purchase in Boston in the early 90's, so it is very special to me to see it in work!  Thanks Lisa, Love it!

Hello, my name is Lisa and this is my first tutorial. This will show you the simple steps to creating the tall scroll pin brooch using fondant.

The items you will need for this is the mold, a small rolling pin, and a ball of fondant the color of your choice. Take the rolling pin and roll out the fondant a little bigger than the mold.

Take the fondant and lay it over the mold and gently push it in with your hands.

Then take the rolling pin and go over the fondant and the mold. This will make sure it gets in all the crevices. So you don't miss any of the detail in the mold.

When you are finished rolling, gently pull the fondant out of the mold. You will need to trim the excess fondant from the edges. You can use a small knife or cutter for this.

This is the brooch after it has been trimmed. I chose to take the middle layer out but you can leave that in depending on how you want it to look.

This is the final example dusted with gold and attached to some fondant ribbon. The pattern behind it is also from Decorate the Cake. It is the feather swirls texture mat.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. I look forward to doing more projects in the future and sharing them with you.
