I bought the 1st impression baby mold because of all the beautiful babies you guys have been creating and finally had a chance to play around with it tonight but I'm having problems. Can anyone tell me how to get the baby out without completely destroying the head? I have the bottom end perfect but it seems like the head gets caught and doesn't want to fall out so it ends up stretching so badly that it has to be redone. The other thing I was wondering is if anyone has tried putting melted chocolate in the mold and getting a good turn-out. I really want to be able to use gumpaste or fondant and I need a good baby in the next couple of days so it can have a week to dry. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I agree... about 10 minutes and it firms it right up.

Thanks, I'll give it a whirl!! Does anyone have any opinions about the melted chocolate way?
