AI've never made candy before. Let me start with that. :) my nephew wants a Ninjago cake for his birthday next month and I came across lego molds that would be great for it. I've never used a mold and know nothing about. Can I put the candy on bc and would it be possible to use the molds for mmf instead? Thanks!

Yes, you can put candy on bc. And as long as the mmf isn't too sticky you can use the mold. Make sure to dust it with cornstarch or powdered sugar.

I love silicone moulds.  I think they are way easier to use than plastic and the detail in them is usually better.
