Silicone Pinecone Molds
What? They're not pinecones, they're MODELLING CHOCOLATE?
Yes, they are. I'm very pleased with myself because I made these little food-safe silicone molds for tiny pinecones. I'm selling them in my etsy shop, at what I think is a very reasonable price, by the way.
It's a two-piece mold using a food-grade silicone. You can use it to make a 3-D pinecone, or just press the clay into one side of it to make a flat one to go on the side of a cake.
I used gumpaste and candy clay in it and they worked fine. I think that if you put fondant into it you'd have to put it in the freezer for 5 minutes or so to harden it up before de-molding it.
I think they're really cute!
