Someone on here posted that they had made their own silicone mold. I need to make chocolate candyland figures to go on 4 dozen cupcakes for an order and I was wondering where I would get a kit to make a mold. I searched online and they said the craft stores, but I am just not having any luck! icon_cry.gif

You need food grade silicone. That's all I know.

Whyat Cylstrial posted are great. I love using the materials from Make Your Own Molds. You can also check out Michaels for a similar product but it doesn't have a lot of work time.

Rylan is correct. Look in the clay isle at Michaels. It is a box - and it is food safe. It will work in a pinch (it is about $20.) I prefer the makeyourownmolds stuff (makes a nicer mold) but in a pinch for time, the stuff at Michaels will work fine.

I purchased a box of "Amazing Mold Putty" from Hobby Lobby and also Silicone Mold materials from makeyourownmolds.com. At that site you are also given a good tutorial on the procedure. I haven't had the opportunity to try either of these products yet but am excited to try. It is relatively expensive, but the molds are practically indestructible and can be used for nearly everything.
I make my own cutters with aluminum flashing, food safe adhesive, scissors and needle nose pliers, so am eager to make my own veiners. I have already spent a small fortune on cutters and veiners and am eager to expand on my own. I use photos of cutters from the various sites and catalogs and so far, so good. HTH

Before I got into baking I used to do special effects for the movies. If you need any molds I can make them just drop me a line and we can discuss what you need.

Please let us know once you have tried the Hobby lobby mold and the other to let us know the results, Phots would be great too. Good luck and I hope to try this soon too.!

Thank you all for the wonderful advice. I am going tomorrow to Michael's, Joann's and Hobby Lobby to see what they offer. I'll post my results tomorrow for anyone that is interested.
