Making soap in the Forest House
So I got these molds from Amazon:

I think they are really cool, and much to my surprise, when I fill the mold with M&P, it comes out
in one piece and is actually workable. Below is an M&P I made to try it out.

And of course, I have questions.

If I made M&P "branches" could I put them in individual cavity molds (like below), only with
CP batter?

Would the batter get too hot and destroy the embed, since it's M&P?
Would it be better to cut them and make single bar impression mats?

I love the look of these and am eager to try the other designs, but I'd
like some input about the best way to use them.. :)


I agree with Dibbles. If the silicone mats aren't big enough for you individual cavity molds you can cut them down until they have an even border around them which might work well. Or sacrifice every second frond so you have a full mat to fit in your molds.
