They sent us a few products from their newest product line; silicone onlays. Onlays are part stencil, part cutter, part impression mat. Roll a thin sheet of fondant over the onlay and the silicone ribs cut the fondant into its separate shapes. Pick out the pieces you don't want on the cake and place the flexible silicone mat against the side of the cake and the pieces stick right on. The best part about these onlays? They are all based on Pi, so they line up perfectly on any even-sized diameter cake.
I received a zebra and a harlequin mat. I was a little disappointed, as those are simpler designs that I can already do well without using the onlays, but I think I made the best of it! Here's a picture of the cake I made from Cake Central's website:
If you haven't already voted, I would love it if you could stop over at CakeCentral and vote on my cake. There are several great designs and designers, including the fabulous Erica OBrien!! The cake with the most votes will be featured in an upcoming issue of Cake Central Magazine!
Full Disclosure: Marvelous Molds did provide me with a few of their new silicone onlays free of charge as part of the contest, but their exposure here was not part of the agreement and my opinions, as always, are my own.
