FIELDS OF APPLICATION
The decosil® molds are designed to manufacture with the casting technique: chocolates, candies, pastries, sweets, sugared almonds and poured sugar and Isomalt. You can also use the moulds, by the pressing technique, with sugar paste, marzipan, ice cream, popsicles, chocolate paste, savoury mixtures based on meat, vegetables and cheese.
