Name that mold!

Recommended Posts

Well it's time for another round of "Name... That... Mold"!!  :)  Since you were all so helpful in sleuthing last time :ph34r:, I thought I'd try your collective knowledge again (but this time I only have a description).  The outline of the shape is similar to this:  http://www.bakedeco.com/detail.asp?id=8934, but the center had what looked like a cupid with an arrow, and there may have been some hearts in the center also.  Mind you, this could all totally be a figment of my imagination xD, but I'm pretty sure I've seen something like this online at some point.  Thanks!

Yes!  Thanks Kerry - that's the one. (I think it's funny how I inverted the shape in my head, haha).  :D

@Choky - my hero!!  Thank you, you are a super-sleuth!  Now if you'll excuse me, I must spend the next few hours perusing their website and figuring out what and how to order. xD:D

Glad to be useful and welcomed!

 

I found the thread (and forum) a couple of weeks ago when I was googling for chocolate mold manufacturers.

Then yesterday I found myself in the Prefamac website and there was the Bubble bar looking at me. :x

Now that I have registered in the forum I’ll probably ask some no so smart questions, chocolate related. :/

Cheers!

I came across a useful video on decorating chocolates that features the mold below. As far as I can judge from a frame in the video where the person is holding one piece, the cavities are about 1 1/2" long. The holes in the mold show that the pieces can be formed with a matching mold as an (somewhat elongated) egg but also work as a single mold. Several people responding to the video have asked the origin of the mold, but the chocolatier has not answered. I have scoured Bakedeco and Chef Rubber (two places she mentions as general sources for products) and looked under eggs on Chocolate World and on Chocolat-Chocolat, with no luck. (I should add that Chef Rubber's website has been under reconstruction since last fall, so polycarbonate molds are not listed--they sent me a list of what's available.) Chocolat-Chocolat has an egg mold with 16 cavities, but the shape does not appear pointed as does the one in the video. If anyone comes across this mold, please let me know.

Just for the record: The chocolatier in the video did reply to my query and gave J.B. Prince as a source--it's the same Chocolate World mold that Lisa Shock mentioned. I was disappointed to see that the mold produces 10g chocolates, rather small compared to my other molds.

That is surprising, it looks bigger than 10g.

that mould is particularly shallow, but it is a very pretty mold. I just wish they could have engineered it to have more than 16 cavities.

@Jim D. & @keychris - if you like this shape but want something that yields a bigger piece, you might consider this sister mold that is the same shape but has the base shaved off so that once joined, the piece will sit flat:

I like that mold too, but although the pieces are considerably longer than the original one, they are only 7 grams. 

 

Ah but if you join them together... 17g! ;)

 

Btw, are are these pieces longer?  I thought they were the same dimensions as the quenelle.  I have both and they fit perfectly, so perhaps I included the wrong link.

You are correct, the two molds have the same dimensions. The one you pointed out holds less (obviously) because of the indentation. In any event, whether 7g or 10g, that is a small piece of chocolate. As keychris wrote, we just need someone to make the quenelle shape in a larger size. I haven't yet tried to "glue" together two halves of this type of mold. I assume one would make each half separately, close each, then melt the feet to stick them together. Or perhaps there is a better way?

If the molds are filled and bottomed, a dot or two of chocolate makes easy "glue".

I've tried "gluing" both ways:  (1) with a chocolate backing as pastrygirl said in which case the center of your finished piece has 2 layers of chocolate in the middle dividing the fillings, or (2) just slightly overfilling the cavities, adding a drop of chocolate to each side, closing them together, and hoping for the best. :D

 

The advantages of the former method are that the halves tend to stick together better and there's no spillage of filling.  The downside (for me) is that you get that center of chocolate which together can sometimes be quite thick.  With the latter method you don't get that thick chocolate center, but the halves don't stick together very well, and if your filling is runny then good luck trying to join the halves without making a mess. I find this works best with thick or sticky fillings like peanut butter, but expect to join a good number of halves together manually. 9_9

@Marina It looks like a pretty standard dome mold, I'm thinking maybe CW2295?

Hard to tell from the pic but hers might be a tad larger...

 

Edit:  Just found this one which looks a little bigger:
