The trick for making a Twinkie mold is quite simple, and easy to get the hang of.  Don't waste your  money on fancy Twinkie making kits (which I understand do exist).  And if you're making Twinkies for the legions, I recommend making the half-sized molds that I used.  In fact, just do it that way.   You don't need to be eating that much Twinkie!  Then you can have two.

Cut a bunch of 9" sheets of aluminum foil (enough to suit the recipe you're using).
Fold each piece of aluminum foil in half twice. 
Wrap the folded foil around a small spice bottle to create a mold. 
Leave the top of the mold open for pouring in the batter. 
Repeat.

Arrange on a cookie sheet or in a shallow pan.

Those Twinkie making kits are actually reasonably priced from what I understand, I'm all for custom making molds and all but sometimes it pays to buy something (if the product is worth it), and there's even a recipe and other tools in with the kit that can be repurposed!
