It looks like it's just for making little egg cakes you might be able to make chocolates with it but I think you would just have two halves of an egg shape :-)

The mold is not one of eggs, but clearly scallop shells indicating some sort of decorative seafood item.

I think it is a specialty pan for petit fours or Easter cakes. I would fill them with carrot cake batter for the Easter bunny crowd. It is a cliche but, a tasty one.

Yes. Joesfolk and Bolas De Fraile have it right. It's for Madeleines.

This paticular pan does'nt have anything to do with seafood. The molds are shaped exactly like a half of a shell egg.

"Madeleine- The madeleine is a traditional cake of France. These are very small shaped cakes which have a shell like appearance."
