'Food Grade Mold' Recipe - Page 2

 Annabakescakes,  said  "I mean mold as in fuzzy green or black stuff, in this instance"

 

Hi,  I don't know how it will hold up.  Just started making them.  I am no longer putting in the syrup, doesn't seem to need it, so that might affect how it acts also.  But the glycerin in it is a form of syrup.  Sorry, but I really can't answer this one.  I would speculate that they would break down over time, but don't know how long.  So it is a good thing that they are so cheap to make. lol

Annabakescakes brings up an important issue. Can molds like these be classified as food grade if they haven't been tested?

You bring up something that had never occurred to me!  I have no idea.  Was the wording 'Food Grade' not acceptable?  I was looking to make a mold that 'I' could use.  And I did not want silicone, denatured alcohol, or other known poisons to be in it.  I am classifying this, for my purposes only, as food grade because it is made out of ingredients that are edible.  Even if I had said 'food safe', it would have been splitting hairs.  So far I know that heat will melt it.  I assume that water will dissolve it.  Do not know the implications of refrigerating, or freezing, it.  So I should add, 'USE AT YOUR OWN RISK'.  Kind of like 'Sold As Is'. lol  I guess it was premature to give it out to the public, not enough testing, but at least I am not charging for it.  Hopefully, anyone using it, will be able to determine if, and when, the product is no longer viable.

 

If you think of anything that I should know, or do, regarding this issue, please get back with me, thanx, Bonnie.

UPDATE  --  FYI

Regarding my "Food Grade Mold' Recipe, that I have posted here, please be advised that you use it at your own risk.  It has not been tested for 'Food Grade' by the government or any other agency.

I am just trying to cover my butt here, no offense intended.

Smile and have a nice day!

i think you are a genius and a generous one at that--thanks for sharing--for the initial use i'd consider it to be food safe for my purposes--so long as your container is not leaching lead or something--

 

very cool!

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

Amazing!  I am so very excited to see this recipe as well as those that Costumeczar listed!

They MUST be food grade, as all ingredients listed are food grade  (I buy food-grade glycerine)

The only question might be about possible contaminants from the object being molded, so that's the only place my caution would lie.

;-D  Some of the things brought out by others never occurred to me either like "mold"  -  the thread has been very informative, IMO

I am sure that if you just have something to mold, say a button, make the mold, use if for a cake, then throw it away, you're fine. So many molds are 1 time use, then sit in a drawer, anyway. You can just keep a drawer full of stuff you like to mold, and make a quick mold as needed.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

K8memphis   THANK YOU, & THANK YOU!!  I, at least, am having a very good time making molds from some of my Mom's broaches & pins.  She has/had this really big one that I want to copy, as soon as I can pry it loose from whoever ended up with it.   There were 6 of us kids.  And I did recommend certain types of containers, under 'Notes', in the recipe.  Thanks again for your kind words.

JWinslow,

Hi again, so nice to keep bumping into you!  It does seem to be having that effect.  Kind of like stirring the imagination.  I am going to have to ask my grandson what 'IMO' means.  For the longest time, I thought 'lol' meant 'lots of love'.  lol

Annabakescakes, That makes a lot of sense!  Good old fashioned common sense.  Works for me!

JWinslow, while you are in a teaching mood, how do I bring up the 'Quote' box that you keep using, appears so much easier than rewriting, or copy & paste, all the time.  Yhanks in advance!

Thank You. You are most generous!

 

I live in Singapore and being able to do this with ingredients from my kitchen is wonderful. Shipping costs from halfway across the world are exhorbitant!
