Where does one get a mini popsicle mold?,
This review is from: Bite By Bite: 100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party (Hardcover)
I like that Mr Callahan instructs readers to use store-bought available items like pizza dough. Making your own popsicle molds, however is different. I wanted to make the fudgesicles from the book and I read the recipe where it says "Pour the mixture into a mini popsicle mold". My search for "mini popsicle mold" on Amazon.com only came up with ones designed for teething babies, and nothing on the rest of the web looks like it will produce anything like the picture in this book. A friend of mine called his catering company to ask where to get the molds to make mini fudgesicles, and she was told that essentially "we don't share that type of information."
A cookbook is meant to show the reader how to make something, so why would he include 2 recipes (fudgesicle and limoncello popsicle) that call for equipment that one can't get anyhere? Grant Achatz's book doesn't have any recipes that say "add the mix to your volcano vaporizer" or "insert the lamb shanks into a pot with a thermocirculator". But if he did, they would at least be available. Volcano Digital Vaporizer + Solid Valve Set + Travel Case + Bonus Grinder

Although I really do agree with you, in his defense the book did say you could use an ice cube tray.

Hi, Jennifer. I don't think an ice cube tray would achieve the same look. Although I remember doing that as a kid with orange juice, wrapping the tray with plastic wrap and sticking toothpicks through as handles- I think I saw it on TV between Saturday morning cartoons.
I did discover that a mini terrine mold such as this one: Mini Pate Terrine Mold with Hinges Non Stick, 1-1/2" W x 2-3/8" H - 12" would work as his "mini loaf pan" that he writes he had manufactured. He could be using a mini terrine mold like this and not letting on. He suggests in the book buying disposable pans and using kitchen shears to shape your own which seems like a bit much.

Have you tried filling a regular popsicle mold partway?
The one that got me was the cotton candy: you (obviously) need a cotton candy machine to make it. So why include it? The "recipe" is really Stuff small wads of cotton candy on a lollipop stick; serve.
