I bought the mold for the baby bottle but need help with how you make it and put it together. The first time I poured white chocolate into the bottle part, let it set up, then put the pink in the cap, let it set up, then put yellow in the nipple. It unmolded okay, but I don't know how to put them together, and the kind of ran together.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

is this a 3d mold? if it has two parts then brush the seams with melted chocolate and press the two parts together. After you can clean the seam with a knife and just shave the extra chocolate to clean it up.

To insure that both halves are perfectly flat, place a sheet pan upside down over a stove burner. Heat the sheet pan for a few seconds, then turn off the heat. Hold each half of the bottle in each hand and rub them on the sheet pan. The choc will melt instantly, giving you a flat surface and 'glue'. Stick the two halves together, let set up, then clean up the seams as charmed described above.

how does one prevent the colors from running together?

I have that mold too, and although I havent done it myself yet, my local cake decorating shop owner told me to first 'paint' the nipple, let it dry, then 'paint' the rim, let it dry. Then, fill one half of the bottle with chocolate, lock the two pieces together, hold with binder clips all the way around, then shake the chocolate all around so that it covers BOTH sides. Then, let the chocolate set (probably in the fridge), unmold, and your two sides are seamlessly joined together as one!

Sounds pretty simple, but I haven't done it yet. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

thanks, so much for your help! Anyone else done it and had success? The mould has little tabs or buttons to snap together. Is this enough to close it or do I need to buy a (clip?)

Follow all the directions as above, and then I used a couple of extra clips to secure them together.

yeah, you need to paint each section individually, just the surface and then you would just fill the whole thing with 1 solid color of chocolate. It's nice this way too because you can paint the bottle body white, the ring pink, the nipple yellow, and then fill the whole thing with milk chocolate if that's your preference.
