I'm not sure what it's make of but I've used "amazing mold putty" from Michael's. It works quickly but is pricey unless you have a coupon.

Why don't you just use pre-made chocolate/candy shell molds? That's the quickest, cheapest way to go, about $2 for a sheet of different shells. They make sooo many types and they're pretty realistic.

I used them on the only cake pic I've been able to upload. Haven't had the time to figure out how to re-size my pics. Having a few problems with Windows Vista.
