Use this flexible silicone mold with your favorite polymer clay or air dry clay to create perfect miniature cupcake bases for miniature food projects and food jewelry pieces. This long-lasting mold is easy to use and clean. Simply press a ball of clay into the mold and gently flex the mold to release the clay. You will also receive the blue tool pictured above, which can be used to make paper cupcake wrappers (see instructions below).

The food-safe silicone can withstand temperatures of up to 450 degrees F, so you can bake your cupcakes in the mold if you choose. If the clay sticks, dust the mold with a bit of cornstarch first or place the mold with the clay in the freezer for five minutes; the cold clay should pop out easily.
This listing is for the cupcake base mold and the presser tool. If you would like to get the mold only, please use this listing instead.
USING THE MOLD AND WRAPPER TOOL
Press a ball of clay into the mold, making sure to push it into every nook. Flex the mold to release the clay and bake your clay in a preheated oven for twenty minutes. If your clay sticks in the mold, you can dust it first with cornstarch or pop the clay-filled mold in the freezer for five minutes and then flex the mold to release the clay. You can use the ice cream scoop as is, or if you wish to add a bit more texture, use a needle tool to tease the surface along the bottom ruffled edge of the scoop for an even more realistic look.
To use the wrapper tool, cut out a circle of paper (thinner papers, like tissue or light vellum, work best) using the template in the last photo. Center the paper circle over the mold cavity and use the presser tool to press the paper into the mold. Remove the presser tool, and use a pair of tweezers to gently remove the paper from the mold. Voilà! You now have a miniature cupcake wrapper. :)
The mold will make cupcake bases that are just slightly larger than 1/4" in diameter.
The mold is handmade from high quality silicone that is extremely durable and will last for years with proper care. The mold is flexible allowing for easy release of clay.
