Cute as a Button!

I created this cute button heart mold for a simple Valentine's Day cake.  

For the border we are using the new silver isomalt nibs from CakePlay and the new bead mold they are offering.  

Melt the isomalt in a microwave safe cup.  I used a silicone measuring cup.  Carefully pour the isomalt into the cavity in a stream.  

Once the isomalt is "semi-set" but not "cold" flip the mold over and gently bend back off the isomalt.  It may need a gently coax to get it started.

Then I gently shaped it around the edge of the board. 

I also used the silver isomalt in a few heart mold to add some contrast.  Again I carefully poured the isomalt to fill each cavity to see which I liked best done in the isomalt.  

The red buttons are fondant used in various button and heart molds available from Decorate the Cake.

  1. Hi! Can we use sugar syrup insted of isomalt?

    1. I am assuming sugar syrup is the sugar, water, corn syrup that is cook for pulled sugar -- YES! You may use that as well.
