Ear mold, severed ear mold for Halloween cakes, zombie cakes, gumpaste ear mold, chocolate, fondant or polymer clay ear mold
Here's a nasty little item...An ear mold to make a severed ear for Halloween cakes or zombie cakes.
Food safe silicone is good for making candy or gumpaste ears, or you can use chocolate, isomalt or fondant. It will also work with polymer clay or resin for non-food purposes. This was made using a real ear (still attached) so it's life-sized. It's about 2 1/2" tall. You can rough the edge up to make it look nastier, or leave it smoother for a more refined separation. Van Gogh would approve.
The ear in the photos was made from gumpaste and painted with ivory and red food colorings. This type of mold works best with gumpaste or a stiff fondant. Soft materials won't hold the shape as well since they can stretch as they're removed from the mold. if you're pouring chocolate into it make sure to let it set up completely before removing
