I ordered a pine cone mold from Jennifer Dontz at It came at least a week ago but I finally got to play with it this morning. It isn't perfect, but I'm very happy with it and I wanted to share it with all of you.

What is the mold like? Is it a 3D mold or do you make two halves then join the halves?

That is a very cool pine cone!

Thanks everyone!

It is a 4 piece mold: bottom, large petal, small petal, new growth at top. You also form a cone piece without a mold. You make one bottom (base) piece, one top piece, a few small petals, and 50 or 60 (give or take) large petals. Depending on how you place the petals, and how big you want the finished pine cone to be, you might use far fewer petals than I did. Use a paint brush handle or modeling tool to cup each petal. They are made with modeling chocolate and attached to the cone with melted chocolate. You can see the mold on the site.

It took me a while to make it - probably a couple of hours - but I got faster as I went along. I'll pick up speed with the next ones I make. It is pretty cool. :-)
