Our Contest Theme this month?
Well, since our Sponsor is offering some amazing mold I thought what better than to use molds as our theme. Let’s call it – Creative use of molds.
So, submit your cakes with pretty molds!! NO your cake does not have to be Marvelous Molds. Your cake can have any brand or non branded molds. We wanna see how you use them on your cake.
So, go head and submit your cake. Check out the upload form below or Instagram upload details as well. You have one whole week to submit your cake until the 20th of Jan. We will start voting on the 21th Jan.
Our Sponsor – Marvelous Molds.
Marvelous molds is the leading brand of silicon molds in the cake industry. One of my favorite for sure!! I have a huge collection of them myself. The best thing about Marvelous Molds is that they have a tutorial for almost all their products which means you know how to use them. I met Chef Dominic two years ago at Cake International – was such an honor.
This is just one set I clicked when the shipment arrived last year. I like buying in bulk so I can take advantage of the free shipping over a certain amount. I have lots more….. I’m crazy about molds.
You must remember the Gumpaste Stiletto Shoe Tutorial I made for Marvelous Molds last year. That is an amazing collection to have. Love that chain mold, so easy to use. Can you imagine sitting and making individual loops for the chain?
Another great collection to have – which is still on my wishlist is the Ocean and Sea Molds – You must see them; I bet you will go crazy over them.
If you want to see my cakes using Marvelous Molds and other products you can check out my board on Pinterest – I usually share a link to that product I’ve used on my cake. If you follow me you will see all the new additions as I add them to Pinterest as well.
Here are some of my cakes with molds – I use lots of marvelous mold but your cake does not have to have any particular brand – if you win of course your treat will be Marvelous Molds – after all only the best for my blog! Right.
