To make beautifully detailed sugar craft decorations, is to choose a delicately crafted silicone or resin mould and use this to create stunning and impressive cakes and cupcakes in no time at all.
In general there are three types of moulds available to sugarcrafters:
Plastic moulds (molds), made from thin sheets of plastic that has been moulded. These are used predominantly for chocolate work, we stock a shoe mould which makes an excellent former for a sugar shoe
Hard resin moulds, which are excellent when you are trying to minimise distortion such as when moulding faces.
Silicone moulds, commercially now the most widely available moulds - extremely easy and quick to use and so effective.
