I just whipped up a last minute treat for my mom for this Sunday. It starts with those silicone molds that will hold an Oreo cookie (I used these), and you melt that melting chocolate that you get in the big box hobby stores, fill the well halfway with melted chocolate, pop in an Oreo cookie and push it down a bit until the chocolate oozes up the sides, top off with more chocolate to level with the top of the mold, then let cool. When you pop it out of the mold it looks like a tiny chocolate cake 57 mm in diameter, ready to decorate.
I decorated mine by making a custom sugar lace mold out of silicone sheet. I engraved “Happy Mother’s Day” in reverse on the sheet, and after cleaning thoroughly, applied the sugar lace paste and let it dry overnight. I had to use the point of a craft knife to tease the lace out of the mold, but I managed it. The whole greeting is less than an inch high, so it’s pretty delicate.
If you want to know more about how to make molds for sugar lace, you can check out my previous projects here and here.
Whoops! Sorry about that. That post was from more than a year ago, so I guess supplies have been in flux. If you search on Amazon for “edible fabric icing sheets,” you’ll get a lot of hits. I can’t recommend a particular source since I’m still using what I bought back then.
