Hi all! :)
I would like to experiment with making my own molds for sugar paste relief work.
I have searched the internet for alternatives for food grade silicone and could only get
one thread where someone suggested using marine aquarium silicone since it is food safe (I would
have to double check this before I consider baking a cake commercially!).
I have also read on this forum that people suggested using Gum paste instead of the silicone. But I understand that the mold might not be able to be used multiple times?
I want to know if other members have tried their own versions of "silicone molding" with alternative mediums and what was your experience?
(If there is anyone who can point me in the right direction in South Africa (Gauteng) as to where I can at least find food safe silicone putty I would be grateful! The international shipping seems quite steep...)
