So I've been shopping for molds, I saw the silicone ones but they are really expensive, I bumped into the chocolate molds they seem good too, but to be honest Iv never seen either of them
which one works better for cupcake toppers (gumpaste & fondant) & whats the difference between the two

Silicone are flexable, which will make it easier to get gumpaste and fondant out of it.

I have used both and while I prefer the silicon I used the chocolate molds for some shells for a beach cake and they turned out fine, I had to grease the chocolate mold to get them out. I never grease the silicon molds.

I've used both and there's a world of difference between the 2...silicone molds are the best!!! yes, they're expensive, but the detail is amazing and well worth your $$. It took me a long time before I bought my first silicone mold, but now I have a collection icon_wink.gif

I also find silicon molds easier to clean for some reason. but that's just me!
