it works - and even better for molded cake pops
I was really hoping this product would work as a faster and easier alternative to spooning candy into molds or trying to use a bag (which never works so well because you can't reheat the candy in the bag - the bag can't handle it. It takes a little getting used to the action of the thumb control - when you stop it, it pushes more out - but once you get the hang of it it works well. It did work for the candy melts, but, as with a bag, the candy hardens in the funnel, so that complicates it a bit. Also be sure to have a cup of some sort standing by so you can put the funnel down in it. What this really worked great for though was with cake batter. I was making some molded cake pops for Valentine's Day in the Wilton silicone heart mold pan. The hearts are small and as with other of these type of pans, it can be tough and time-consuming to get your batter into all of the little cavities, but not with this funnel. The batter went into the molds quickly and easily - and neatly! No big messes around the edges. It was easy to refill from my bowl of cake batter (much easier than refilling a bag) and it was quite easy to make them all pretty equal in size. I will use it again for my candy molding, but definitely every time for my little silicone molds. Also easy to clean - the thumb control piece comes completely apart from the funnel.
