Party Talk Trays
Teddy Bear Party Talk Tray
I need to know how to use Party Talk 2 piece molds.
I have a set of Party Talk trays, shaped like footballs. One tray has no holes, but the other does.
Why? Any instructions on how to use them?
You've got me stumped! I had never heard of the "Party Talk" brand of candy molds so I did as thorough a search as I could to get a look at what you are referring to, but have been fairly unsuccessful.
The only thing I could find was the Teddy Bear Party Talk tray in the photo above that is actually an ice cube tray.
This Teddy Bear Party Talk ice cube tray was posted for sale on Etsy and I hope they don't mind that I've shown the photos here to help us figure out if we are talking about the same thing.
(***If you are the seller and see this post and take offense, please let me know and I will promptly remove the photos at your request.)
Does this have the same look as your football Party Talk molds? I'm guessing that maybe you are dealing with an ice cube tray as well.
If that's the case, you can probably still use the one half of the mold and then use a little melted chocolate to "glue" the two halves of the football together.
I can't really see how you can fill both halves if one of sides has holes in it. I wish I could get my hands on it (or at least see some better photos) so that I can truly see the size and positioning of these holes.
The way the picture looks on these ice cube trays is that one half has a very deep "lip" and so you fill it with water to the line indicated. Then when you press the second half over the top, it "pushes" the water up into the teddy bear cavity on that particular side leaving an air hole for expansion as the water freezes.
Does that sound like what your football mold/tray looks like? If so, the basic principle may apply to making them in chocolate, although I can picture it getting a bit messy. :)
Of course, DO NOT run hot water over the tray to release the chocolate. The chocolate should release on its own.
Let me know if you make the attempt and also how it turns out.
