Need help replacing vintage mould

Recommended Posts

Hoping for some help.  I accidentally melted an old mould that is very important to us and I've had no luck searching around for a replacement.  

If anyone knows where I could buy one - or even has one to spare they would be willing to sell - please send me a message.

The mould (label attached below) was originally labelled as "Easy as ABC gelatin mould", although we just call it the alphabet mould.  Yes there are lots of alphabet moulds around, including new silicone ones, but we need the specific designs on this one to replace the one I damaged.  Depending on the cost, I would consider paying for postage internationally (to Australia).

Thanks in advance!

Thank you so much!  Not only for spotting the auction (I have been checking Ebay myself but stuff comes and goes...) but thanks to your link, I realised that the plastic mold I've been using is most probably a cheap rip-off of a cast-iron cookie mold design by John Wright...

...and there are loads of these available!  I really had no idea...

 

You have made my day 🙂  Thanks again.

@ChrisZ,

 

I'm very happy you found your replacement mold! (mould?)

 

When this thread first popped up I thought you might be talking about some of the tin molds for gelatin or mousse that are plated with copper that were popular back in the 60's and 70's here in the US. As part of my retro country kitch decor in my large kitchen, that I love a lot, I have five of these molds hung on the walls. There is an elaborate heart (smaller) and larger ones of a swimming fish, a leaping fish, a lobster and a rooster. They are all quite detailed with feathers on the rooster and scales on the fish. I have never used then to mold anything, but I just love them anyway.

 

I was hoping I would have something you like that I could send you, but such is not the case, so I'm very glad you found what you wanted.

      I've read some older threads on here about keeping your cocoa butter warm in a dehydrator. We picked up a NutriChef PKFD32 which was the closest we could find to a recommended one (2016/2018) and none of our bottles fit. Which had us ask--are people putting their bottles preset in here or are you using cups/transferring and cleaning your bottles over and over? Also if the PKFD32 isn't what we should be using, is there one generally people like now?
       
      We've grown up from cheap airbrushes to the Grex line and we're attempting to get much more serious about our airbrush techniques. It's been long enough. Any thoughts, tips, tricks, or considerations are greatly appreciated.

      What do you all think is the safety level of leaving raw shortbread out at warm room temp (75-80f) for 18 hours?  Assume no eggs, just butter, sugar, and flour.... 
       
      It will be baked, but I still fear that pathogens could grow. Or maybe it’s my years of pastry experience wherein cold dough has always been easier to handle and that’s why it seems so wrong. 😂

      Hello everyone!
       
      Id like your advise about freezing bonbons. 
       
      Lets say i would start to freeze my bonbons now in the summer for Christmas. Would they last for such an extended period of time?
      Also using natural colouring, would the colour remain as good when i open them up after a couple of months?
       
      Would be great to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter  
      Thank you!

      I remember making bundt cakes with 'baked-in' filling, and now I wonder:  would a basic fruit curd stand up to being baked in the middle of a bundt cake without horrible texture fail?
       
      Could something like this basic curd work, chilled enough to allow it to be applied with a pastry bag over the half-filled bundt cake batter, and topped with more batter?  Dreaming now of a pistachio cake with pomegranate filling, but thinking about other combinaions as well--what are the key characteristics required in a 'bake-in' filling?
       
      2/3 cup sugar
      2 T cornstarch
      1 cup pomegranate juice
      1/4 cup lemon juice
      5 egg yolks, whisked together
      1/3 cup butter, cut into chunks

      Stirred the sugar, cornstarch and juices together until there were no lumps, then brought it to about 160 degrees. Gradually added it to the whisked eggs, returned to heat, brought to near boil so the cornstarch thickened, then strained it into a bowl, whisked in the butter, and poured into serving dishes to chill.
