Bee mold for cake decorating, cupcakes or polymer clay
This is a silicone bee mold for cake decorating made from a charm from my collection. The design is ornate and it has the loop on top if you want to use it to make a necklace.
The bee's wingspan is about 1 3/4" wide, so it's sized right to use on top of cupcakes too. 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.
