Over this past weekend, I made some more of the super popular Crawfish Boil Cupcakes. After I was done, my sweet husband was helping with cleanup and he put my chocolate mold in the dishwasher. Oy!
Note… chocolate molds do not go in the dishwasher! They come out quite warped and unusable. Anywho – when shopping for a new mold this morning, I though I’d share where I buy mine and also, a new fun mold I found that is perfect for these cupcakes!
I buy most of my chocolate molds on eBay and they’re so inexpensive! Here are the links to a couple of molds I’ve bought in the past:
And when I was shopping today, I also found this Miniature Corn Chocolate Mold. I usually make the little ears of corn by hand, but this little mold will be perfect. I’ll just use the small section at the end and not the part with the husks… don’t you think? I’m excited to get it!
When they’re done, if the chocolate is above level with the mold, use a bench scraper (one of my most favorite tools!) to scrape over the top and level them off then pop them in the freezer for a few minutes and they’re ready to pop out!
This is a project that anyone can do even with very little cake decorating experience and minimal tools!
These cupcakes are really popular during crawfish season and not hard to make at all! I hope this helps those of you who want to make some! Do you have any questions?
