Take your cakes and bakes to tropical climates with this versatile mould from Karen Davies!
With this tropical leaves mould, you can produce the most stylish and summer-themed cakes.
This mould features four tropical leaf designs, including: Monstera Leaf, Calla Leaf, Fern Leaf & Bamboo Leaves.
Monstera Leaf (Large) - 10.5m x 9cm
Monstera Leaf (Small) - 7.5cm x 5cm
Calla Leaf - 11.5cm x 6cm
Fern Leaf - 15.5cm x 4.5cm
Bamboo Leaf - 5cm x 1.3cm
How to create the perfect tropical leaves:
1. Dust the mould with cornflour. Turn over and tap out any excess.
2. To mould the long fern leaf, start with a tapered, slightly flattened piece of paste. Press the paste in firmly, keeping it flat and level with the mould, and tidying up the edges as you work along the leaf. If the paste or your fingers become 'sticky', dust with a little cornflour. Remove any excess paste at the tip with your thumb.
3. Turn the mould over and release the leaf. It can be dried straight or curved. You can also use a smaller piece of paste for short leaves.
4. For the Monstera leaves, roll the paste into a ball and flatten before placing it into the mould. Dust the mould with cornflour and remove the excess.
5. Place the paste in the mould as you flatten it, rub your thumb across the mould to reveal the holes and the splits in the leaf. It sometimes helps to add more cornflour to the paste when doing this.
6. Release the paste from the mould and place on kitchen paper. Rub green powder colour into the paper, and using a flat dusting brush, colour around the edges of the leaf and the veining. White powder can be brushed on to the leaf to create highlights.
7. Finish th leaf with an edible spray varnish.
8. Attach to your cake using edible glue or royal icing. Leaves can be attached soft or dry, depending on your requirements.
Wash and thoroughly dry the mould before use.
This mould pairs perfectly with our Tropical Birds mould - the ultimate combination to create flawless tropical masterpieces!
