post #91 of 215
interesting - the www.sugarcraft.com takes me to the BBB website and tells me about the unsatisfactory record they have!! Ok - not buying from them!

Anyone have problems buying from them?

Here's another site that has them for $1.99 each http://www.onestopcandle.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc? I didn't see a minimum order but check to be sure.

Thanks Tiggy- there is a minimum order of $9.90 - or they will charge you a $5 additional fee.

But it's a good site - there's lots of stuff to look at!

Thank you again

You're welcome! $9.90 is a lot better then $50 and 4 of each mold on another site icon_biggrin.gif I'm going to look through their site to see what else I need (or want) before placing an order.

fraggle- i will have to agree with you about the great customer service with 3dmolds. i read from this post about when you order you get a free mold sent to you also. (even though i didnt not see that anywhere on their site). so in the comments section when i placed my order i asked them if i could get the face mold as my free mold. they also had a place asking you what you were using the molds for, so i told them. not even 2 hours later i received an e-mail from them. they said that usually they put the free mold that they have the most of at the time, but to leave my recomindadtion and they would try and get the one i wanted. and also he commented back on what i was using the molds for, and would probly be pleased with the new release they were about to put out. they were very friendly.
i was very shocked that they took the time out to send a personal e-mail back and also that they actually read my e-mail. usually you get one of the automated responce e-mails. so that made my day, knowing that there are some companies that go beyond to provide customer service.
i too thought the molds were a little pricy, but after that i was very pleased with the company icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gificon_lol.gif and also the freebie icon_wink.gif

Here is another place that has the same mold as 3dmold for $5.75 with a flat rate shipping of $6.95 for orders $0-$25. I did order mine from 3dmolds, I haven't seen anyone comment on their shipping price-but surely the free mold would cover it.

Despite my best intentions, only got around to trying the chocolate covered Oreos today (see pic). Had alot of leftover orange candymelts, so used them. My son said the candy part was too thick on the top and bottom, so am going to go a little lighter on both sides, and not fill the mold all the way. When food shopping today I saw the bakery selling chocolate covered Oreos (looked hand dipped), and were selling them 2 for $1.49. Being the ones we can all make with the molds are alot nicer looking, I plan on charging $5 for 6 cookies, which comes to about 83 cents each. Being all the work that is involved in these being decorated, that is a very fair price as far as I am concerned. Any thoughts?

Pricing sounds good to me! 83ยข is a steal for hand-dipped, yummy oreos!

Yours look great by the way! thumbs_up.gif I'm still waiting for some extra $ to buy some of those molds icon_rolleyes.gif LOL

Okay, even though I have PLENTY of Oreo molds, I did jump on the wagon to get the face mold. I also wanted to see which one I got for free (tee hee - I'm a sucker for surprises). They sent me the Celtic one and I couldn't BE more grateful, as I have orders for 3 dozen St. Patty's Oreos icon_lol.gif . Their customer service ROCKED! I tried the mold with luster dust and without.

Sunflower, I have the celtic one too (and yes, fell for that funny face also) and now I know how nice they come out. May also try the green design with white covering. Can I ask how much you charge your customers for these since you have lots of orders? icon_rolleyes.gif

Any hints are how to get the melted chocolate into the molds smoothly?

I've tried a few ways and I'm not having too much luck. Maybe I'm just not thinking...............

I mentioned on the first page that I charge $7 for 8. It sounded like I charged more than other people, but I get a lot of requests. I have 3 of those orders for Thursday. Then I do "assorted cookie trays", and include these, along with truffles and sugar cookies. I have 2 St. Patrick $20 trays and 1 $30 tray due on Thursday. In that context, I don't really know how much I charge individually... I just kind of throw them on the tray. icon_redface.gif So, I don't know if that helps much.

Phyllis, I don't know why your chocolate wouldn't be smooth. What do you use? I know Crisco can make it glossy. I've never had problems with it not coming out perfectly. Maybe someone else can help?

Love the flowers and the celtic oreos! I guess I'm gonna have to jump on the bandwagon and order some molds too...I've been itching to try something new. icon_biggrin.gif

Oops, I didn't express my question clearly - sorry!

I meant since the oreo molds take so much chocolate, what do you use to melt them in and how do you pour them in the molds. Do you put them in a measuring cup to begin with.....if I use a decorating bag to melt them in, there's not enough chocolate.

I hope this helps!

Thanks again guys.
