CK Hard Candy Mold

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

OK...  So I've been experimenting with different molds for Jems and using the Isomalt sticks.  Today, I tried a CK jewel design breakup mold.  It has a shiny finish and I thought it would make a shinier jewel.  The problem was that it stuck in the mold.  Only afterwords did I notice the instruction of "use oiled molds".  My question is....  can I just spray on some veggie oil?? Or do I need to use something else? 

 

Thank you!

Yes, you can spray on, wipe on, or brush on.  Canola oil is flavorless and works well. 

 

Once you have it on, wipe the mold with a lintless cloth--Viva paper towels are good in that department.  This makes sure that the edges and details remain crisp.

And with those breakup molds don't be fooled into thinking that they'll really break evenly. Try not to fill the cavities to the top because it's a heck of a lot easier to remove the jewels if they're not stuck to each other.
