"My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate.  That's my philosophy."

  Thornton Wilder

Molds are not essential for food preparation in the way that spoons, knives and pans are.  They are used instead to transform everyday foods into edible works of art.  The museum’s extensive collection of molds ranges from those used for ice cream, chocolate, jellies and candies to more utilitarian ring molds, steamed pudding molds, and even candle molds.
