Silicone is to expensive to ship to Alaska so I am wondering if anyone has a homemade recipe that is great for mold making. Has anyone tried food safe paraffin?
Thank you for your help!
I have used "Amazing Mold Putty". I bought it at Michael's for $20 (minus whatever coupon I had at the time). It's so easy to use. Two different bottles of putty (white and yellow), you mix equal amounts and put it over whatever you want to mold. 20 minutes or so later, it's ready to use. Works great, is food safe and is very pliable. Here is a video on it:
Good idea! Thanks! But, no michaels here . I need something that you can buy at the grocery store. Next time I go to the lower 48 I will pick up some putty.
Here is an online site for ordering: http://amazingmoldputty.com/ProdDetail.cfm?Category=Silicone%20Rubber&Name=Amazing%20Mold%20Putty
Saw something on food network. She used gingerbread dough, raw! Took work but she did it and won the challenge!
Makes sense, the stuff is stiff.
How about gum paste? Maybe if it dried rock hard before pressing fresh fondant into it?
I think a gumpaste mold might be too fragile, and it's too expensive to have to keep trying. Plus, you'd never be able to clean it properly to use again.
Wahooo! I just found an FDA approved silicone putty on amazon with free shipping! It was out of the question from the cake estores because shipping is sky high. Love amazon!
I bought the Amazing Mold Putty at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon - haven't used it yet but anxious to try. Glad to hear others have used it successfully.
I've made all kinds of molds with the amazing mold putty -- and it's very easy to use!! I highly recommend it.
