Silicone Buttons Mold for cake decorating
This is a handmade flexible silicone mold to make 2 different buttons that are classic, formal suit-type looking buttons. One has a checked pattern on it and the other has a stripe down the center with smaller stripes on either side. Both of these buttons are about 7/8" wide.
The silicone is food-grade, but if you're using it for food don't use it for other purposes as well.
This could be used for gumpaste, fondant, chocolate or poured sugar. Safe up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you use it for polymer clay it shouldn't also be used for food items!
The buttons in the picture were made using fondant.
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.
