    @novaking good one, done!

    @Museum of Small Things Well I did not win the competition had some great submissions as well. But still had great fun making this and had some good laughs when I explained what I used to make this high tech recipe :)

    To me, this is one of the coolest things I have seen someone use 3-D printing for.

    I have wanted to make some chocolates from my designs, but have yet to get a print with a good enough surface for doing it.

    I had never even thought about bread.

    Did you do a lot of finishing work on your printed piece before making the mold, or did you figure that bread wouldn't show too much detail anyway?

    Ok, That is really cool.

    Nice work,

    Did you make one without the silicon? How did it taste?

    I bought some food safe silicone p(Smooth-Sil® 940 (Food Grade Applications)

    The chocolate version tasted great! The bread version less so... I had to thin the bread dough to get a better 'resolution' in the bun but it took nearly 3 hours in the oven before the outside looked somewhat tasty. The inside was still doughy :laughing:
