All silicone molds are not the same. At CQ brand silicone molds, we pride ourselves in our ability to think outside the box and create molds of inspired design and function. We do not make our moulds by simply pouring silicone in a block shape around an object. Instead, we painstakingly design them so they conform to the shape of the object produced which enables us to create a thinner walled mold that has great flexibility without sacrificing strength and sturdiness.
The products produced by CQ are made with only the highest grade of food grade silicone which produces food safe molds that work perfectly with chocolate, fondant, gum paste, candy and more.
But do not think that food safe molds are limited to be used as food molds, every one we make performs just as remarkably with arts and crafts materials like polymer clay, plaster, candle wax, soap and much more. Detail reproduction is a sacred quest here at CQ and you, like our many customers around the world, will be amazed at the striking details all of our products produce.
We also incorporate an unmolding lip around the outside of every one we make. The unmolding lip allows our customers to stretch and bend our molds in such a way that unmolding is made quite a bit easier when compared to “block” molds that are produced and sold by less sophisticated suppliers of silicone molds.

CQ’s molds is internationally famous for creating ingenious silicone molds that will work perfectly with almost any food, craft or artistic material. Cutting edge design and a passion to produce the world’s best molds are the driving forces that have transformed this innovative company from a small start up enterprise to an essential supplier to the food, cake decorating and craft industries worldwide.
Traditionally, silicone molds are made in blocks with square corners and thick walls. It was thought that, thanks to the silicone’s flexibility, these bulky moulds would still perform better than rigid moulds made from plaster and fiberglass. While that is true to an extent, at CQ, we have found that the extra bulk can make such molds tough to use, and so we refuse to make “block” molds.
Instead, we design each and every one of our moulds to conform to the shape of the object our silicone molds produce. This results in a thinner mold wall that greatly increases flexibility and results in perfect un-molding every time.
If you have never used silicone molds, or you would like to learn why our molds are a cut above the rest, we offer many free videos and step by step tutorials to teach you how to use our products – so you can find out for yourself why CQ is one of the most respected companies in mold making!
