SIlicone floral cabochon mold for cake decorating, 1/2" to 3/4" wide, chocolate, hard candy, polymer clay, resin, silicone mould, cake pops. M047
Flower cabochon mold. There are three cavities in the mold, each one with its own carved pattern. One has a single rose, one has a double rose and smaller flowers, and one has a butterfly sitting on some flowers. The Nickel is there to show the relative size of the cameos. They measure from 1/2" to about 3/4" wide and long.
The pattern transfers best when stiff gumpaste is used in it.
These would be good to use to make gumpaste cameos or other decorations that were the centerpiece of the design on a cake tier.
The mold is make from a food-grade silicone, and you can use it for gumpaste, fondant, modelling clay, chocolate, and isomalt. It's safe up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, and I've used hot isomalt in them with a good result.
You can also use them for polymer clay and other clay media, but if you use them for non-food purposes don't use them for food items after that!
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.
