Katy Sue Designs Flowers Silicone Mould Review

Flowers Silicone Mould
I celebrated my birthday on June 12th (Happy Birthday to me!), and decided I'd treat myself to something new and crafty to make things with. For the first time I made an order with Create and Craft, and was pretty impressed with the service. The item arrived quicker than expected, so I've already had time to make some things.

I chose the Flowers Silicone Mould from Katy Sue designs, which can be used for chocolate, and sugar paste/icing work, though I bought mine to use with Premo, an oven baked clay. The mould arrived and looked very durable and sturdy, so I think it will last me a long time, and I was quite impressed with the detailing on each different flower in the mould as well. There are four different flowers to choose from, so you can have fun making up lots of different arrangements.

Why Not Try Using Embossing Powder?
It took me a few goes just to get used to the technique of folding the material away from the sides, but this is a tool anyone can have a go at using, with good results.

My tip would be to check the amount of Premo/Fimo you use. A little will go a long way in moulds this size, but you don't want to make the flowers too thin, as I discovered, when one of mine bubbled and boiled into a heap of mess when I baked it. If you have a little bit of depth to the flower you can make the most of the 3D effect, and ensure easy baking.

It's best to make up a batch of flowers before you head to the oven, and then you need to be on red alert. The Premo packet suggested putting the oven at a temperature of 130c for 30 minutes, but these flowers are very small, and my oven can get hot. So I tried 120c and kept a close watch. They were ready in 4-5 minutes. I've put a picture of the results below.

The Results!
My silicone mould retailed at £7.99, and while at first I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the money, I don't regret it. If you can get a good quality result, from something you are likely to use again and again, I think it's worth investing in.

You can find out more about Katy Sue Designs, and their products here. Don't forget though, if you want to do both food and clay work, buy separate moulds for each.

Have you tried any silicone moulds for your craft projects? or found any gadgets that you just can't live without? leave a comment below and let everyone know.


  1. Just found this after your comment on our Facebook page. We're so happy you are getting great results from our flower mould. We would love to see what you did with them.

  2. There will probably be a follow-up making post when I have enough to photograph. Currently making gift tags with them.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
