One of the significant invention in the baking industry is the silicone mould. The ability to withstand high temparature resulted in various shapes of moulds created so that a product can be baked into the shape required either to minimize wastage, baking time or for its aesthetic value.
Silicone moulds used for cake decorating also means there are more variety of gumpaste decorative embellishment available to decorators. Some of these moulds are costly, creative use of them is an advantage. For example, using a mould with another material, using two different moulds to form a design, using part of a mould, and etc. In short, moulds are not meant to be used per se, therefore all moulds are good investment if used creatively.
