One time I saw Ben Israel (sp-sory) on Sugar Rush make these really cool gumpaste broaches. Does anyone know where I can buy these silicone molds or the silicone thing that he used to make the broach? I am wanting to make a cake like the one I just attached. Thanks!!!

First Impression molds has some great silicone broach molds and Elegant Lace molds has some beautiful jewelry molds made out a foam-like substance. I've made lots of edible broaches from both, they're lots of fun to make! icon_biggrin.gif

I saw that episode also. I watched it over and over again (recorded). He had used some type of clay to hand sculpt the broach (it was an heirloom), then he used silicon to make the mold after the clay had hardened. Then he painted it.

Unless you need a specific broach, I would order a mold from somewhere.

Another place that sells great silicone broach molds is Kathy Scott on Ebay. I have tons of her molds and they're terrific.

Those broaches look like actual diamonds. How do they create that effect?

I've made my own molds of some of the jewelry I have. Michaels sells a kit where you can make a mold of baby's hands or jewelry or whatever your heart desires. The mold is flexible and also food-safe. the kit comes with two kinds of putty which you mix together to activate. It's a lot of fun- I think I'm going to try to make a mold of a bird ornament I have, and use it for a cake topper. If I remember right, the kit is around $18-$20.

Good luck,
