Ice Pop Molds - Making Your Own Ice Pop Is Easy
Ice pop molds are made to help children make their own ice cream. These molds are specially designed to hold small smooth ice cream pops that are about two to three inches in diameter. The molds are very inexpensive and are commonly available at any ice cream store or party supply outlet. They are not recommended for making heavy or creamy ice cream because they are very difficult to fill and clean.
These molds are a great addition to any child's birthday party or special occasion. These simple to use and easy to clean features allow your child to have lots of fun with their ice cream. Most of these molds come in vibrant colors that add even more fun to your treats. You can use any type of container or even a small cup, jar, or pail. The possibilities are almost endless.
Ice molds are made from durable plastic which is safe to use and versatile. These molds are strong and sturdy, but also small enough to be packed away easily. These are the perfect solution for making miniature edible treats for any child's party. These molds are made by a company known as Kuchenbock.
You can purchase small plastic containers at your local dollar store and craft store for relatively little money. You will find that some of these containers are already lined with clear tape to prevent spills. This method works well for smaller ice pop molds. Another option for filling small containers is to use food coloring to tint the bottom part of the container.
These molds are not only used for ice cream. They are also perfect for making potpourri, cookies, fudge, and even candles. One thing you may want to keep in mind is that these molds are extremely easy to clean. All you have to do is take them out of their storage bag, wash them off, and pop them into your dishwasher. The molds will pop right back into your dishwasher.
If you have never made anything with molds before, it is very easy to do. A simple recipe found on the internet tells you how to make a simple substance called Plasti Kocher. This material is made up of porcelain which you simply bake in a plastic mold. Once you remove the finished product, you can then decorate it however you wish. Another great idea for decorating is to use edible colored dyes.
You can purchase the molds online or at your local art supply store. If you are someone who doesn't have a lot of experience in baking with molds, it would probably be a good idea to purchase the ones made with quality ceramic material. You will find that they are not only affordable but reusable as well. When you decide to decorate with your new creation, you may want to get the help of a friend or family member. They can help you place the decorations in the right locations and even help you see how the ice pops look when they are fully filled with melted ice.
Now that you understand how easy it is to create your own ice pop molds, you can easily plan on making them on a regular basis. You can also recycle any old molds you may have. Check your local community recycling center for other items that you can use. With so many different varieties of ice pop molds on the market, you should have no problem finding just the right one to suit your needs.
As far as price goes, these types of molds are usually affordable. However, keep in mind that you can buy them in bulk to save money. If you plan on making plenty of them, you might want to consider making them from plastic. This will cut down on the cost to some extent. Another way to reduce your costs is to make your own mold and that can be achieved by looking at various molds at home that can be made by using an ordinary coffee mug.
There are some molds that are specifically made to house certain candies. If you like the look of a candy cane but cannot actually purchase one at the store, you can make your own version. All you need to do is heat up some water and pour the mixture into a mold. Once the water has sufficiently cooled, you can place the mold into a freezer for about an hour and then remove it. Now you have an ice pop cane in your house!
There are other molds that are specially designed to house other things as well. These molds are great for arts and crafts and also great for making cookies and candies for your children. The only thing to remember when you are making molds is to ensure that they are safe for children and also to keep them away from acid contained foods.
