Freezing helped minimise breakages”
by Mrs Shaw
I followed the advice given in a previous review and found that freezing the melted chocolate in the spoon mould for 10 mins worked wonders. You have to be careful wiggling the spoons out but the couple of breakages were soon repaired with some left over melted chocolate. I used lots of different types of chocolate to make selection bags for Christmas gifts and found those with additives such as toffee or raspberry the least successful.

Great results... trouble keeping them from children!”
After reading the reviews, I chilled the mould in the fridge and lightly coated it with cake release. I then chilled in the fridge overnight. To release the set spoons, I eased the moulds away from them before turning over and pushing them out. Made 2 batches with Belgian chocolate: white and milk with no problem. I tried using cheap supermarket basic chocolate but it refused to melt smoothly in my bain marie so going to stick to the more expensive stuff as these are for xmas pressies if I can keep little fingers away from them long enough. Great mould!!

I have tried making these 6 times and the result was 8 whole ones, so I have now tried using "cake release" which means that they all come out, hooray, but the outside is not quite set. I have wiped them down with kitchen towel but they are still a bit sticky. Have the Lakeland team got any foolproof way of doing these so I don't average less than two whole ones per set?

A note from the team: Thanks for the feedback. I've checked with our team and there's nothing special they did or used when testing the moulds. I'll be in touch shortly.

I bought the spoons yesterday. the review on them said the handles broke as you got them out and they did. so the next lot I did I put in the freezer for ten mins . left them for a few mins came out no trouble really pleased with them

Great finishing touch”
I was a bit sceptical about trying these based on the previous reviews but thought I would give them a go. Glad I did, pleased with the results. Maybe I was lucky but I got five out of the six out in one piece. I used white chocolate and levelled off the mould quite carefully then put into the fridge to set. I think the trick may be to turn them out when they are not 100% set as the chocolate still has a bit of flex in it then. Also, turn out from the handle end and work towards the bowl end seems to work best. They are a bit fiddley but look nice and are a bit different.

A very cute finishing touch”
The chocolate decorations that these produce add a nice talking point to cakes etc. You do need to persevere with them as there is a knack to getting yields from each batch (they can snap as you release them from the mould). I've experimented with different choc and chill times. My tips use dark choc (the cheaper stuff works better that the high cocoa content) and ease them out gently. Also chill them well - at least 4 hours - overnight is best. I do still occasionally get one snapping at the thin part but I'm getting the majority out each time now. The results are worth the effort.

I was really excited about using this product but as previously stated by the last reviewer, it is really hard to get the spoons out of the mould. They snap very easily. Mine came from the fridge. I managed to get 2 out of the 6 out in one piece.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the spoons had broken when you removed them from the mould. We'd recommend letting the mould reach room temperature when removing this from the fridge. This will help when taking the spoons from the mould.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the mould has been a disappointment. It will help if the spoons are cooled in the fridge or freezer for a while to harden. We'll be in touch shortly to help.
