As a master pastry chef, Stéphane Tréand MOF delights in sharing his skill and knowledge. He again teamed up with the Chicago School of Mold Making to produce a new kind of silicone casting mat the ShowStopper. A single silicone mat with multiple, thematically shaped cavities that when cast in chocolate or sugar provide pastry chefs with a variety of cast shapes to quickly produce amenities, centerpieces or showpieces. With beautifully beveled and curved elements, focal pieces and flourishes, quick construction is possible.
The Wave Showstopper is inspired by the powerful motion of the rolling seas. These deceptively simple curves and curls bring an elegant touch to any presentation.
16" x 24"
40cm x 61cm
Cavities are 3/8" (1cm) inches deep

Descriptions of the six Showstoppers™:

The Flame Showstopper is a shape reflected by the unpredictable nature of fire. With smooth lines and sharp corners, these pieces will demand and hold attention.
The Heron Showstopper brings an entire mythos to the table. As symbols of love and fidelity, the herons add a touch of grace, while the defiantly swooping wings lift the drama to new heights.
