Silho Cake is a new product that allows you to easily create trendy silhouette cakes.
The kit includes a 200g tub of edible black Silho Cake mix and the Celebration & Holiday Silho Cake mould with 22 different images.
To make edible silhouettes, spread the Silho Cake mix onto the Silho Cake mould, heat in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes. Once dry the silhouettes are easy to peel from the mould. To adhere to your cake, simply brush with a littel bit of water which will sticjk the design to your cake.
Silho Cake can be use on sugarpaste, buttercream or ganache. Simply adhere in the same way. If using on buttercream we advise you allow the buttercream to crust over first to prevent the silhouettes 'melting' with the extra moisture from the buttercream.
Silho Cake mix comes in 2 parts in the tub; a powder and a liquid that you mix together. You need to add 50ml of water to this mixture but all instructions are written on the tub for you to follow. Silho Cake mix can be mixed in a stand mixer, with a hand held mixer or by hand.
Silho Cake is vegetarian. It contains traces of lactose and may contain traces of milk, soya and sulphates.
About Silho Cake Moulds
Silho Cake moulds are made from food grade silicone. The silicone is flexible but very strong. It can be used over and over again and will last for many years. We'd advise you don't use anything with a sharp edge when scraping the Silho Cake mix into the mould so as not to accidentally cut or damage it. A plastic cake scraper or similar would be ideal.
The solid silhouettes designs are etched at an even depth into the mould.
22 different designs are included on the Celebration & Holiday mould including:
- Happy Birthday sentiment
- Merry Christmas sentiment
- Just Married in pennant banner
- Curved blank pennant banner
- Flying cherub
- Train with zoo animals
- Wedding couple
- Santa and sleigh
- Witch on a broom
The variety of designs make the mould suitable for many celebrations including birthdays, Christmas, graduation, wedding and more
There are designs on the mould suitable for both boys and girls / men and women.
The Silho Cake mould measures 30cm x 45cm (12" x 17.5")
The size of the designs on the mould vary but as a guide, the Merry Christmas sentiment is 6.5cm wide by maximum of 4cm tall. The sentiment is one word above another on the mould The height of the capital letters are around 1.5cm.
The blank pennant banner is approximately 13cm wide.
All the designs have been well thought out and are sized appropriately to fit on the side or tops of cakes.
After use, wash the mould with warm soapy water, lightly towel dry (with a towel that doesn't leave lint behind) and leave to dry flat. The mould can also be washed in the dishwasher.
Directions for use:
50g Silho Cake mix part A (dry mix)
3g part B (liquid)
Add first 2 ingredients together and mix on medium for 2 minutes. Add part B and mix for5 minutes on high. Use the Silho Cake scraper to smooth the mixture over the mat ensuring you have a good coverage.
Dry mould in 80 C (175 F) oven for approximately 15 minutes. Cool and carefully remove decorations from the mat. Alternatively, air dry for approximately 8 hours. Depending on the level of humidity, both drying procedures may vary.
Attach to fondant cakes with a light spray of water or steam the surface. Pre-prepared Silho Cake may be stored between baking paper for up to 3 months in cool dry conditions.
