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.
