Vintage Japanese Kashigata, Cake and Candy Mold

Japanese kashigata are hand-carved wooden molds used to make higashi since the Edo period. Higashi is a broad category of wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets) and is a low-moisture treat made with soybean flour or rice flour, fine sugar, and other ingredients. These materials are packed tightly into kashigata molds and dried to create beautiful designs and shapes. Many of these sweets can still be found in wagashi shops and grocery stores today.

This two-panel kashigata mold is carved with the design of two bundles of curled ferns, called warabi in Japanese. Also known as bracken in English. This mold can be used to make sweets or as an eye-catching decorative item.
