In fact, I think you get better detail with the modeling choc than with the fondant.

Galadriel2:  don't use plastic molds.  Use food safe Silicone molds for modeling choc.

You can certainly use plastic chocolate molds.  They're cheap & work really well. 

 

I dust them with a bit of corn starch and then tap most of it out. 

 

If it still sticks, I find that about 5 mins. in the freezer and tapping the mold on the counter usually releases them quickly.

Galadriel2:  That's nice to know that it works. It gives me a few more molds to use myself.

maybenot: it was your tip to use the corn starch and freeze  (sorry I did it backwards)

I'm glad you shared that tip as it adds more options, being able to use plastic chocolate molds as well as silicone molds.    Thanks maybenot

Out of curiosity, can you use fondant in the cheap plastic molds and get it out without wrecking the design?  I've never thought to try.

Sure.  It helps to add a little tylose/cmc/gum tex/gum trag to the fondant.  Dust the mold w/ some corn starch & then tap it out.  Fridge or freeze, if necessary, for 5 mins.
