Has anyone used the edible diamond/gem silicone mold? How do you rate it? easy to use? any advice using them? Do you use candy or cooked sugar?
thanks for your help
I used cooked sugar and it was not easy. I have two different sized molds. One is blue rubbery thick silicone and one is the paper thin white plastic that it seems like it would burn baby burn but it doesn't. The white one makes a bigger 'diamond' but pouring cleanly is an issue.
Probably from candy would be easier. I was just messing around, not doing it for an order so I didn't have to refine the process. Surprised it was so cumbersome, so messy.
Using a larger mold would also make it a lot easier. 'Pouring' hot sugar is not an exact process.
I know the purchased candy diamond shapes cloud easily and quickly.
Gem thoughts for you.
