Silicone coral mold. For cake decorating or polymer clay mold, ocean theme cakes, beach cakes.
This is a coral mold for cake decorating and beach themed cakes. It's about 1 1/2" long.
The brown coral in the photo is made of gumpaste using the mold.
The silicone that I use for these molds is food safe and can be used for gumpaste, fondant, chocolate and sugar. it can also be used for polymer clay as long as you don't use it for food after that.
I like this individual mold because it's easier to get the shells out without losing the detail on them. Some other multiple-cavity molds that I've used result in flat spots when you push the gumpaste out of the mold, but with this type of silicone it's easier to get the shell out without ruining the detail on it.
I used a real piece of coral to make this mold, and the details on it is really nice. It would be perfect to make coral on a beach themed cake.
These molds work best with gumpaste or a stiff fondant. Soft fondant won't work in the molds because it will stretch when it's removed and lose the shape and details.
