Football Helmet Chocolate Mold

Recommended Posts

I've got a request to make a football helmet chocolate and would like to use a football helmet mold with a transfer sheet for the decal. Anyone ever do something similar or have suggestions where I could find such a mold? I'd prefer a polycarbonate mold as I may have to make quite a few. Thanks!

I don't know if polycarbonate is going to happen because they are made in europe and they don't wear a similar helmet (same reason you don't get much polycarbonate halloween molds). But Altype Molds in Hamilton (previously in Grimsby) makes the thermoform molds and there is a place in Buffalo (not Tomric) that does the same. Tomric would be worth a call for sure. I'm not at home so I can't look in my Altype catalogue for you. I'd call Tomric first and ask.

How soon do you need them?

Kerry,

Thanks. I don't need them right away and I need to be able to also add the logo on the helmet. I'm thinking of doing this with a transfer sheet. I couldn't find any info on Altype on the internet, is there an online catalog? Thanks again. Bill

No on-line catalogue for Altype yet. PM me at the end of the week when I'm back home and I'll look through the catalogue I have. I'll also talk to the person who told me ablout the place in Buffalo that can do custom work for a somewhat decent price.

The transfer is going to be a challenge too, given that it will have to bend, unless the mold has a flat spot, not quite sure how this can be accomplished.

Assuming the mould is a reasonable size (ie., big enough to take the transfer) you could always mould your chocolate helmet as normal and then remove from mould when set.

Then pipe a bit of chocolate onto the spot where you want your logo and stick the transfer sheet on. Sounds like a long process though because you'd prob have to leave the helmet on its side for a while to let the transfer adhere and then turn it over and do the other side as well.

Altype molds has two molds with football themes. One has a boychild football player with helmet. This is a double mold 7 inches high. The other is a single mold with 3 items, one is a face with helmet, the other two football players, and the third a football.

They can be reached at (905) 296 5333, toll free 1-877-218-6653 and e-mail altypemolds@quickclic.net

Tomric has a sucker mold with a boyish face in a helmet - page 10 of catalogue, a little football player with helmet on page 84 sized 4 3/8 or 7 1/2 inches. page 131 has an 18 cavity boy football player 4 1/4 inches.

Still trying to get info on custom made for you.

      I was just wondering what PSI you all generally use for your compressors for molded bonbons? I'm sure the effect you're trying to get influences how high or low you run the compressor, but to just get a general nice even coat, what PSI do you all recommend?

      Hello. Thank you for allowing me to join. I am from the sunny Florida. I just started venturing into the chocolate world and am loving it. I am in awe of all the mold chocolate creations and want to be able to make decent pieces. Beside that I also love making macarons. I hope to learn more from all the experts in here. Thank you
