Hi there

I have all the information on how to make a mould from a object. However, can I make a mould of a solid chocolate object?

Any advice appreciated.

Hi BecsBaking,

You can make a mold directly from a chocolate piece. You want to make sure that you are working in a cooler environment. If the choclate is too warm, it does not hold up well during the mold making process and if it is too soft, it will embed itself in the silicone mixture which will make your mold weak. Also, applying a coat of confectioner's glaze (food lacquer) before making the mold will help very much.
