Did you try freezing the FO? I've never tried that, but...

I sometimes use the individual Milky Way plastic molds, and I don't grease them with anything, instead I use some sodium lactate, and they release cleanly, without any loss of detail, like below. If yours are Milky Way molds, and you put them in the freezer, be careful when unmolding, because they will be brittle and may crack if you are too forceful with them.
Thank you all for the advice. Im using milky way molds...so fae the freezer alone has been enough to unmold them...i do have a lot of oil in the recipes. That is a beautiful mold you have!!!!!!

First, lucky you for Hawaii. I've been using CC Caribbean Coconut for awhile and like it a lot. The fragrance seems to stick well. I'm always curious about a new one when it's mentioned because 'what if it's even better '.
