• Silicone branch mold for cake decorating or polymer clay M086


    This is a handmade silicone mold to make a gumpaste branch with buds on it. For cakes that have branches with flowers coming from them, like the cherry blossom cakes, this makes a realistic branch that won't look too heavy or thick.

    Customer feedback: "This mold is the best way to make real looking twigs, sure beats rolling out gum-paste snakes and trying to fake it with them."

    The mold is about 6 to 7" long and is made from the end of a redbud branch, so it has a little bud on the end and two bud joints along the length of it. To make "y" shaped branches just attach two together.

    There will be variations between molds since I make them using real branches. You can use this mold with gumpaste, fondant, chocolate, candy clay and poured sugar. Safe up to about 300 degrees, and you can wash it with soap and water. If you use it for non-food items don't use it for edibles 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.
