  • n. In candy-making, a form of molding- or printing-press used to form molds for candy in trays filled with starch. Plaster-of-Paris formers suspended from a horizontal plate are pressed into the soft starch to form the required cup-shaped molds, the starch being pressed firm enough to retain the shape of the molds when filled with hot candy in the depositing-machine. In the illustration under starch-buck, a starch-printer stands between the starch-buck and the depositing-machine.
