Default Cold process in silicon chocolate mold?

I've been toying with the idea of doing a soap cake for a while now and have been bit by bit gathering what i want/think i need.

I've made and decorated regular cakes before and my hand is , well, not all that steady or capable of making delicate and beautiful things(roses, etc).

I was thinking of just buying some silicon chocolate/candy molds, making some embeds before hand and decorating it like that. Thing is, a lot of the articles ive seen about decorating soap cakes melt and pour for embeds.

Would cp hold up in something like

The soap cake queen would be "Seven" on this forum. Hopefully she sees this. I don't have a clue, but they sure are pretty.

CP would work but I would oil the molds and use a hard recipe.

I second obsidian - perhaps add sodium lactate or salt to help make it nice and hard. And I would freeze it before removing so it holds its shape.

I use similar molds and a good hard recipe with sodium lactate works great. Just let them sit a few days and mine release clean without freezing.

I have used silicone chocolate molds, though mine are less detailed than those. My basic recipe doesn't harden very quickly, so I left it in the molds for a couple of days before popping them out, and they all came out just fine even without oiling the molds.
