Decorate your tiers in decadent sequins without having to cover it first using the Sequin Jubilee Simpress Mould.
Add eye catching sequin patterns straight to a crumb coated cake with the innovative Sequin Jubilee Simpress Mould.
This ingenious mould features a bespoke sequin design, not only allowing you to cover the tiers of your cakes in beautiful sequins in one easy step, you don’t even have to cover your cake in sugarpaste first, taking all the hard work out of covering your cake and saving you loads of time!
The design of this Simpress mould is a panel of sequins, interwoven to form a gorgeous and intricately detailed design that would look great adorning the tiers of the most luxurious cakes..
The Simpress range of moulds have been designed specifically so that you can add them to a crumb coated cake, eliminating the need to cover it in sugarpaste first. Unlike the Marvelous Moulds onlays that have a thinner pattern that are designed to be added onto fondant, the Simpress moulds are designed so that you get exactly the right amount of sugarpaste covering the outside of your crumb coated cake, helping you get a great looking cake, as well as a delicious one!
As the Simpress moulds provide an optimal thickness of sugarpaste, it also means that you will get a smooth finish around your cake which you could not achieve by adding an onlay directly onto a crumb coated cake.
Another great feature is that you can use it to texture buttercream or ganache for a unique finish.
All of the moulds in this collection are made with the highest quality, food grade silicone to produce an extremely durable silicone mould that is tear resistant and can withstand temperatures to 204°C (400° F).
The Simpress moulds work best with sugarpaste/fondant but can also be used with flower paste, modelling paste, modelling chocolate, Isomalt, buttercream and more!
1. Do not fill the mould to the top of the blade that rises up around the mould cavity. The mould should be filled to the top of the cavity which is level with the lip and the point where the blade starts to rise from the surface of the mould, people naturally will fill a mould to what they think is the top. If you fill to the top of the blade, the resulting piece will be too thick and not the way it was designed.
2. Put corn starch (corn flour) in a stocking, nylon, muslin tie shut to make what we call a pounce. Roll out fondant, sugar paste to the appropriate thickness, dust lightly with corn flour and put dusted side down onto mould. Press with palm of hand and fingertips forcing fondant into all the details. The blade will already start to cut the fondant. Take a light rolling pin and roll across the top of the mould.
DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD. Light quick strokes work the best and enable the blades to perform perfectly! Once the excess fondant has been trimmed, press again quickly, place your fingers on the side of the blades and press it sideways toward the cavity and down into the cavity. This removes any little bits of fondant flashing and makes a perfect edge.
