I bought a mold that makes a ball sucker. How do I attach the two round pieces together?

What does your mold look like?

Usually, the pieces clip together to make a 3D mold.

It has a half ball with a hole for the sucker stick and then a separate half ball to fill. I assume you stick the two together, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to use to do that.

You pour and set each piece and then you heat the surface of both spheres and put them together. I heat up a metal spreader, hold it on each side and then hold them together until they set (which won't take long). I hope that helps! Good luck

personally (having NEVER done it) I would be inclined to pour the side without the stick...let that set up, then pop it out and pour the side with the stick and just set the already set up side on top of the unset side........would that work? Might make it mush out and you might get burned!

I just made some lollipops but I cheated lol I stuck some jolly ranchers in the bottom of some mini foil pie tins and shoved a skewer through the sides and popped them in the oven.......they're REALLy pretty though...they look like stained glass and my kids LOVED them!!
