Is there a substitute for gelatin?
I have heard the word agar comes up as replacement but i have never tried it myself
Hei Manuela. Hvor får man tak i den formen du bruker her?
hei Marita det fins å kjøpe i butikken til cacas.no som ligger i Oslo
Hi Manela! I love all of your bakes. Do you by chance know where to find that silicone mold, or even the brand name? I am trying to find something similar in the states, but am struggling to find that exact one. I love the size you have created with that purple mold. Thanks!
Hi Amy, thank you, I used this mold: https://www.amazon.com/Silikomart-HSH01-Celebrate-Collection-Gingerbread/dp/B004DC52KY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1513206800&sr=8-1&keywords=silikomart+gingerbread+house
Hi, Manuela – the link goes to a gingerbread thing – I am also interested in the exact mold you used, it seems to me it is not just a sphere, it has more of a truffle shape? I know it’s an old post but I ‘m hoping you will see this comment…
Hi Sally, I use a silicon mold from trufflemade here is the link https://www.trufflymade.com/product/x-large-chocolate-mold/
I´m sure you can something similar on amazon that is much cheaper as they are a bit expensive.
Have a beautiful day Sally, Love Manuela
