Step six

Take a plate or a bowl that has a flat bottom and put it in the microwave long enough for the surface to be warm to the touch.

Step seven

Take one of your empty bomb molds and put it open side down on the plate and hold it there for about 10 seconds. This will melt the very edge of the mold.

Step eight

As soon as you notice that it’s melting, take it and press it down onto the top of the filled mold half. This will connect them and make them a whole circle.
