Have an order for 100 cupcakes and need some molds for the decorations. Need one for a microphone, a disco ball, a machine gun, a war helmet, a liquor barrel, and a couple of others. Where is the best place to get these? The order is needed in three weeks. HELP! PLEASE!
Have you tried Googling "microphone mold", "machine gun mold" etc. or searching on Etsy?
I would try etsy, I have ordered molds from there before and had them in about a week
Ok, this is actually easy. Hope you're in the USA. Just go to Michaels or AC Moores and head for their skulpy aisle. Look for a product called Magic Mold. It's a two part compound mold - mix equal parts together, press it onto a plate and sink an item into it - you can find small items around your house, or at toy stores. Takes about 20 minutes to cure then it's ready to either pour chocolate into and pop in the freezer for 5 minutes until it sets up or use it with fondant. This product is food safe. Skulpy is not. If you know of anyone with children, ask if they have the items in their toy boxes that you could borrow.
That's what I was going to suggest Magic Mold Putty. I make all of my molds. If you use the Michael's 40% off coupon it comes out to about 12.00. Wonderful product. I have used it to make broaches, bamboo, tree bark etc. If you can find little plastic toys you can make your own molds.
