Have you ever gone into a chocolate or candy shop and saw all the beautiful candy designs they offer? It can be a real treat to eat and look at these beautiful candies, but you can also make them yourself in the comfort of your home. Whether you want to include edible beads or other decorations onto your cakes or create delicious eat-alone candies of chocolate or other ingredients, you can find candy making molds that fit your needs.
Create Specific Shapes
Most people truly love the taste and shapes of candy. You can find a mold of almost any shape you could dream at, allowing you to create candies that your friends or guests will truly enjoy. You can even consider making these candies as a holiday gift for friends, coworkers, mail people, bus drivers and more.
Newer candy making molds include bead or rose makers. You roll a log of fondant and press inside to make an edible strand of pearls.
Large molds can create special lace designs, flowers and more to place on cakes or eat by themselves. There are even large baking molds that can be used for candy or Jello making so that you can create the perfect treat for your party or event., They can also be used for non-edible items such as candles or even soap since they hold temperatures up to 440 degrees farenheit.
Smaller molds are also available that allow you to create hearts, stars, circles, bows, spoons, letters, numbers and more.
One of the biggest reasons for using a candy making mold is that you will have the same size candies throughout. If you are making many candies for a party, event or fundraiser, you can be sure that each piece is exactly the same size and shape. Free-form candy forming can be difficult because each one can be different. If you need creativity and uniqueness, free-form can work well, but if you want everything to be similar, a candy-making mold is perfect.
Large and Small Designs
If you want candy to adorn your cake, you will likely want a large design that fits the cake. However, small designs work well for small candies that children and adults can eat while visiting over the holidays or for any reason. Make up a batch of candy, put it into a special container and give it to a friend or any acquaintance as a special gift.
