    Why, why would you think that your hairbrained idea makes any kind of sense? How would you remove it from the mold? Also,pewter has a low melting point You could try to be a bit more rational in the future ok?

    Green 666 by isotope rays is NOT forgivable; it leads to permanent hell. 666 is given with World Passport with no name on it (greyplasticcard). Police 666 people on highways. Food stores and prisoners/insane asylum folks (released by the antichrist) 666 people too. Reject vaccines. Don't go into UFO to be healed by demons. Hide with OrthodoxChristians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can't track you; burn documents as documents are from Satan.

    Source(s): According to the LastProphet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's using Tesla's ether); forgive me

    You probably could but might not be wise to do so. 

    The lead makes it a bit risky.

    Balance out your silicone: Use a metal heating sheet under silicone molds to build security. This additionally makes it simpler to move the molds all through the stove.

    Eliminating prepared products: If your cakes or treats struggle sliding out, deliberately run a little margarine blade along the edges of the heated great to slacken it prior to attempting once more.

    Shape complex treats: Using a thicker player like treat batter? Roll a little bundle of treat mixture between your fingertips and press it into the most point by point part of the form. Supplement more bits of mixture until the form is somewhat not exactly full. Freeze treats in form for ten minutes prior to preparing.

    it is unwise to serve food in pewter as it contains lead, which is very toxic.

    Some time ago, on TV, there was a programme about an archaeological dig in Italy, in which many skeletons were found which appeared to have died from lead poisoning.

    At first, it was thought it was the lead pipes of the water system, but that was ruled out as, in the area, the water had a high calcium content. Calcium is not an antidote for lead but it protects against water-borne lead poisoning another way. The lead pipes soon become covered in harmless and insoluble calcium carbonate, which prevents lead from being dissolved. Later it was found that they used pewter cooking pots, and, at the time, concentrated grape juice was used as a sweetener instead of honey, and was made by boiling grape juice until it became a thick syrup. However, acids in the juice dissolved small amounts of lead, which accumulated over time, causing the poisonings.

    No. Since technology has discovered that pewter, which contains lead is bad for you-do Not take after the Colonial days and cook like they did. Things like stainless steel and aluminum did not exist in those days.

    No -- for 2 major reasons:

    1. Pewter contains lead, which can leach into food. Lead is poisonous ad will also make the food taste odd.

    2. The melting point for pewter is as low as 340 degrees F (170 C).  This is close to the temperature at which you'd bake the cake, which means the mold will be soft and it could all end in a horrible mess that will ruin your oven.

    A mold FOR pewter, maybe. But they are not made with food in consideration (or baking for that matter) and the wrong material may leach into the cake or some other disappointing thing.

    As for a mold made OF pewter, depending on the alloy in it, the melting point can be as low as 170°C (338°F). That's pushing it.

    That's a bad idea.  If you have an old pewter mold that looks like a fancy cakepan it's probably a Victorian ice cream mold and may have done double duty for gelatine set puddings.
