Presentation is everything when it comes to creating plates that impress, and this silicone half sphere mould is a great way to add a little drama to any dish. The smooth shapes and practical nature of the silicone mould makes it really easy to make a variety of treats in eye-catching and interesting shapes.
The silicone makes this mould a simple and effective piece of kit. It is naturally non-stick which makes it ideal for making interesting shapes as they can be squeezed out of the mould gently rather than having to be forced out using methods that are likely to cause damage. This is particularly helpful for confectioners and chocolatiers who want their sweets to have smooth, evenly textured surfaces without the chips and dents that can happen with rigid moulds.
Silicone is also ideal for dishes that need to be heated and cooled. It can be baked at the hottest temperatures for making cakes and withstanding the heat of molten sugar and it can be frozen, making it ideal for iced treats such as ice cream spheres or for chilling things like mousses that need to set quickly. Being heat resistant makes this silicone 15 half sphere mould ideal for recipes that need to incorporate freezing, baking and everything in between, so they can be used for ice cream cookie sandwiches, semifreddos and other similar treats.
