You are buying a silicone rubber mould in the form of fashion boot suited for moulding sugarpaste decorations. Other foodstuffs and other modelling materials may be employed in these moulds. However we do not have direct experience of the use of the wide variety of materials that may be used.
The material can withstand relatively high temperatures for short periods (up to 250C).
The material used is soft and pliable and possesses inherently good release properties, making demoulding of sugarpaste essentially trouble free.
It can be used and re-used many times and washed with household detergent like any other kitchen implement. As for all new kitchen equipment, we recommend that our moulds are washed prior to first use.
The picture shows the mould itself, together with a coloured sugarpaste example of what can be produced. Impressions are shown for illustration only and are not included in the sale.
