Start by rolling out your gum paste - very thin/fine. You can also use sugar paste made strong using CMC or florist paste, mexican paste is the best paste to use as dries much harder/better.
Powder your silicone mould with corn flour to help with the release. Tap off excess, you only need a little! Powder your gum paste & lay it on top off the mould. Push it down with the heel of your hand, and then roll over with a rolling pin.
Using a wet brush, make the back surface of your gumpaste tacky by brushing over it generously.
Once you have brushed the back of the gumpaste, pick out any windowed bits of gumpaste, the bits in the pattern before the application. Use scriber tools to pluck out the excess fondant.
Pick up your onlay and position it on the side of your cake, making sure it is in the right place. Smooth it down on the cake with your hand. Holding it in place with one hand, gently start pulling the only back from one side. Your gumpaste is now applied to your cake, giving you a beautiful pattern. Do the same around the cake (your mould is designed so you can apply all around the cake).
