I am desperately looking for a rectangle shaped mold of the flexible variety, preferably made of food safe materials. Even better would be a rectangular mold with slightly rounded corners. I'm thinking somewhere along the size of 3.5" x 2.5" and at least .25" deep.  I am trying to make edible playing cards for a birthday cake.

I would have posted this in the food section, but I figured there are folks in candle-making, soap-making, etc who might also be familiar with a mold source that might work...

I'd even take suggestions for easily making your own mold.

Do you have a bulk store in your area?  Our local chain of bulk stores - called Bulk Barn, carries a variety of cake and candy making supplies, including molds for making things like chocolate candies, etc.  What are you thinking of making the playing cards out of?  Something high heat like a hard candy recipe, or something lower heat like melted chocolate, candy wafers, or something like fondant???

If it is lower heat, then perhaps you can improvise with something of the right shape, and wrapping it with food wrap or foil?  You can always round off the edges later if the corners are too sharp?
