Hard candy dog molds - ISO

6 posts in this topic

I make lollipops for local organizations to sell to made some money.  And while I do have a goodly number of hard candy molds, I've been unable to find suitable dog molds and would dearly love to buy some.  I've checked a number of online sites and found nothing that I can use so far. 

 

Any help out there?  Please and thank you. 

 

Sorry.  Should have been more specific.  Hard candy dog LOLLIPOP molds only.

The only one really worth having is an Airedale.

Watch out, gweb.  They'll get you for that!!!

 

Thanks rajoress.  It's never exactly what you want, but it's a good start.  Have you ordered and used any of these lollipop molds yourself?  The problem can be can that they really aren't formed quite correctly to take a lolly stick.  I've had that experience.  Except for the paw print mold, they do look as if they might well be correctly formed to take the stick.  Thanks again.

Darienne - I typically don't make lollipops but I have bought from the 'getsuckered" website for pops for wedding favors. I work with chocolate and it usually is tricky in getting the stick to lie straight, I notice that sometimes the channel for the stick slopes down so if you don't watch out, the stick will pop out of the chocolate. Sometimes I wait until the chocolate is set before putting the stick in, but I'm assuming you don't have this luxury with hard candy. Sorry I'm not more help! Best of luck!

Thanks Ruth.  I can always fall back on my old standard large rounds. 

And no, you can barely get all the candy mixture out of its container before it simply hardens inside around the walls.  It helps to work with someone who can reposition whatever sticks need resticking.

      Looking for your opinions and experiences... I am planning to put some wire shelving in my chocolate & confections kitchen. The kitchen has a concrete floor. This shelving will hold ingredients, colored cocoa butters, and packaging. Wondering if I should get casters for this shelving... what are your thoughts on this oh so important question?  ;-)

      I'd like to do a smores flavor and a few other uses of marshmallows in some molded chocolates.  Can anyone give me some guidance on preparing marshmallows so that I can pipie them into the molds?  I see a problem similar to the PDFs....by the time they are cool enough to put in the chocolate shells, they are too firm to pipe.   Anyone have any tips, pointers, suggestions, etc.?

      Ideas on why enrobed marshmallows stored at room temp (68 deg F) have recrystallized sugar particles while the same batch of enrobed marshmallow stored airtight in a cooler (40 deg F) do not?
       
      I'm all ears!
       
      Thanks,

      Do you ever end up with ganache that reminds you of extra-heavy mayo?  I was winging it today, testing batches that set up ok but grainy, then weirldy flexible. The 60% i usually use is 39% cocoa butter, but in this batch I used 72%, which is 45% fat.  I also made some other changes but was trying to keep a similar ratio of liquid to chocolate.  The 72% ganache is far thicker than the 60% ever is - it probably needs more cream or a splash of booze, right?  Arg, I should know this!
       
      I got annoyed and left the slab out to do whatever it will overnight - cross your fingers that it is either use-able or save-able tomorrow!

      Hey all, I got a question for you who make pate de fruit on a regular basis. I know it's quite simple to pour the finished pate de fruit into a frame, but does anyone here use a confectionery funnel to deposit them into forms? I'm asking because in Notters 'Art of the Chocolatier' it seems his primary way of making the jellies is to deposit the mixture into a flexipan, and his alternate method is to pour it into a frame. I'm wondering simply if anyone does/has done this before. The jellies seem to set quite quickly, and I'm not sure if you just need to be super fast with this or not. I want to try it, but shy away (I need to get appropriate forms first) because I keep feeling like I'll end up with half the mixture deposited and the other half solidified in the funnel. I assume warming the stainless funnel will aid the process, but I also assume that you have one attempt at this, and you cant rewarm the mixture as you would with fondant or gummies. Anyways, just a question I wanted to put out there. Thanks!
