Photo Description:

You can get gelatin molds in all kinds of materials and shapes, as well as all different sizes. In this photo, the gelatin mold is made from copper and has patterns on it, so the resulting champagne gelatin mold recipe will have the imprint of the patterns on it too. Copper is a good material for gelatin molds because it lasts a long time and looks good displayed in your kitchen. Alternatively, a silicon gelatin mold is easy to use because the gelatin unmolds easily and it is easy to wash.
