This is the mold. I was wondering if it would melt in the oven. Any suggestions on how to bake it would be appreciated.[/url]

I wouldn't do it. there is a big difference between geletain and cake batter and the heat.

I think you would have to contact the manufacturer and ask if the mold can withstand heat. From looking at I would guess not. Some plastics can withstand a lot of heat, but they may give off gases which could be harmful.

It doesnt look like its safe for an oven. It looks like its a thin plastic. If you want, you can get the stuff to make your own molds with and use it. What I would do is purchase this for your model. Then buy the modeling plastique ast makeyourownmold.com. Knead the two colors together and apply it to your mold. Let it sit until its hard and then you can use it for cake batter and the oven.

I have this mold.. This is only meant for Jello.. you can use it for other things like cake as long as it does not go into the oven.
