Woohoo, Citrus Mold!

I have been lamenting the lack of a citrus mold for making gummy-modelling-chocolate fruit. I showed people in my class the trick to adding the gummy to the chocolate without having the inner rinds collapse. I wrote in the booklet that this wouldn’t be necessary if one could cast the wedge shapes first, but that I hadn’t found a citrus-wedge mold for a reasonable cost (there was one fancy French professional one for $60ish plus shipping but that’s way too much!).

The one of my mom friends cleaned out her kitchen, found this, and gave it to me at a playdate this morning:

Citrus Mold

Look, it even has little fleshy lines!

I don’t know if she wants to be named publicly or not but AS, I heart you for this! Enough that I will NOT give you my first born. See? That’s real mom-to-mom friendship. 😉

Now before you all ask, AS got this several years ago in a basket full of goodies and doesn’t know the source. There are no manufacturer marks or other identifiers. I have searched many times on Google and never seen this before. If anyone out there has a source to share, please do, because these are starting to be in demand!

    Looks suspiciously like an ice tray to me :).

      Oh they are. I just have repurposed a bunch of so-called "ice trays" for gummy. Some of them are even heat-tolerant so they could be used to bake shaped treats!
