I just got a few 3-D rose molds. My questions is how would you attach them together. The one I did looks well like crap. I have a lady who wants them for her daughters 16th birthday party. My other question is how would I color the chocolate black if its even possible? And the daughter wants black ones for her mothers 40th birthday party. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I don't know about attaching them together, but I found candy color at Hobby Lobby or Michael's with the molds and candy melts. The color that I got came in a set of four and black was included with the primary colors.

I'll be watching to see about attaching them together - I hadn't even thought about that. I'm doing a rose/daisy wedding in April and a chocolate bouquet would be fun for the shower!

Make sure that you don't overfill the halves. That's really important, because you don't want any "humps" in the middle. Then either put a smear of choc on one half and slam 2 halves together, of heat one half on the side to be glued to the other, until the choc is barely melted and slam them together.

You will see a seam, even when you get good at his process, but not too much of a seam.

What I do is I mold one side let it get hard and I un-mold it then I pour chocolate in the other side not full I leave a little room from the top I let it firm about 4 to 5 mins in the freezer (it still needs to look wet on top) then I lay the one that is hard on top of the unfinished on and let it harden together I hope this makes since I make three-D baby bottles like this, and I would buy the black candy color it works great good luck!
