What is the curing time for the fat ones? I poured a batch on Wednesday and it's Friday and those babies will not budge out of the straw. Am I being too impatient? Do they need a few days to cure?
did you ever get your out?

I cut them out. Which really wasn't horrible at all. It's just such a super waste of the plastic mold.

Sorry didn't see this till now and hadn't made them recently enough to think ahead to suggest it, but I usually take it in both hands and give it a wringing motion, it makes some crackling sounds as it detaches from the sides and then pushes right out with a pencil, usually easier than the straws!

If I can find the molds in the attic maybe I can make a semi-watchable video? It won't be a John Golden production, but it might help, lol...

Interested in seeing more of my craft adventures?  I would love for you to stop by and have a chat on my blog .  Oh dear, and was that one lump of sugar, or two?
