Sweet items have always been a special treat that people, especially children, looked forward to getting. Throughout the last several centuries, candy was something that could only be consumed on special occasions or by the wealthy, because the ingredients needed to make these delicacies were so expensive. Today, that problem is eliminated, and candy is widely available. These sweet treats are popular not only because they taste good and are easy to eat, but also because of their shapes. Many times, candy comes in special shapes that they have been formed into due to candy molds. With silicone candy molds, you can create your own unique treats and revolutionize the appearance and style of your cakes.
What Are Silicone Candy Molds?
Silicone is a very useful material. Smooth and flexible, it is easy to use and has been used to create a wide number of items. This includes candy molds. Silicone candy molds are used to make soft candies such as fondant, caramels, and cream cheese mints. The mixture is put into the molds, allowed to harden, then removed. Because silicone is so smooth and flexible, you can create highly ornate decorations and still be able to remove the candy from the mold without ruining the design. However, keep in mind that silicone candy molds cannot be used for hard, hot candies such as lollipops or chocolates.
Using Silicone Candy Molds
There are a few different ways in which you can use your silicone candy molds. Create a wide variety of candies in special colors or shapes to catch people’s eyes and tantalize their taste buds. In addition, you can make unique designs with which to decorate your cakes. With fondant or gum paste, you can make things such as lace, leaves, or cobblestones to adorn cakes. You can even get a mold to form the bride and groom for a wedding cake.
