I just got the small baby mold from First Impressions (BTW; love it and having a blast making little babies with it!!) and was wondering whats the best method or place to store the mold when not in use. I thought about leaving it in the freezer; but not sure if that's the best place for it. Where do you store your silicon molds??
I just keep them in a drawer to protect them from dust. I'm curious to know why you would keep it in the freezer...?
I have a plastic shoebox that I keep all of mine in.
Same here - a plastic box with tissue wrapped around all the molds.
I... I'm curious to know why you would keep it in the freezer...?
I suppose I've got the freezer idea to keep it from losing it's shape in a drawer or box with other cake supplies. This is my first silicone mold and the only care instructions on the website says "The life of your mold will be greatly extended with careful handling...just wash it with regular soap and water...If you need dry the mold immediately, we recommend a synthetic lint-free chamois". Nothing about storing it safely.
Thanks for your response though...should I at least keep it in something like a zip lock baggie or container?
From the Make Your Own Molds website (makeyourownmolds.com:
How should I store my molds?
First, you should clean the molds before storing them. Molds should be stored lying flat either wrapped or in food storage containers. Molds should not be stored underneath other objects or weighted down in a way that forces the mold into an artificial configuration that can warp the mold and change its natural shape.
Thanks DianeLM...I didn't think about looking at MYOM for info! Very helpful...so I think I'll just get a box of some sort (maybe even a sandwich keeper) and keep the mold in my cake supply drawer. Thanks for your help!!
