Bored with your same old Christmas cookie cutters?  Need something tasty for a Frozen party?  Looking for a stocking stuffer for your favorite baker?  Gotcha covered🙂

Four of the designs above double as ornaments when hung by their red satin cords.  The cords can easily be removed when making cookies or creating holiday crafts.

These handcrafted cookie molds can be used for molding cookie dough, fondant, pound cake and slices of bread for tea sandwiches.  The molds can also be used for making crafts like cast paper for scrapbooking, salt dough and polymer clay for sculpture or to create holiday ornaments.

Each mold is individually handmade in my studio in Connecticut from my original sculpture. The clay molds are then high fired twice to create food-safe, dishwasher safe, stoneware molds that will last for generations.  Directions and a recipe for molded cookies are included.

  • See these Christmas / Winter-themed cookie molds and other designs by visiting my Etsy Shop!
  • Watch a video on using my stoneware cookie molds.
  • Find a holiday cookie recipe designed especially for molded cookies (they won’t flatten out when baking).

Have a wonderful holiday!

Bakes with Dragons – Handmade Pie Plate/Casserole/Serving Dish

Hi!

I’m currently mired in the middle of making sculpture for some upcoming shows and commissions, but I wanted to pop in a pic of a piece I made several months ago.

This is a handbuilt, food-safe stoneware pie plate/casserole/serving dish with a pair of dragons on each handle.  Oven, dishwasher and microwave safe.  Perfect for a Game of  Thrones season finale party, a Smaug-y pot luck or just to make any occasion special.

You can find it on my Etsy shop.  It’s available in several colors, or ask me about a custom order!

It’s a Small World After All – On Brazilian Bakers and Star Trek Universal Translators

It’s a Small World After All

On Brazilian Bakers and
Star Trek Universal Translators


I recently received an e-mail from Brazil which was written in Portuguese.  Although I couldn’t read it, I was able to figure out that it was about my Kaleidoscope Heart and Butterfly Molds.  Since I don’t speak Portuguese, I went straight to Google Translate.   After several pleasant e-mails back and forth, I’d met Brazilian Baker Marilucy Ruppel and happily sent her molds off to her.

Here are some of the lovely cakes she’s made with her ZANDA PANDA Molds

You can see more of her beautiful creations on her website  and her Facebook page and contact her at: marilucyruppel@hotmail.com

I’m still a little amazed at how easy it was to connect with her, to talk about the molds and send them out to her.  But it will be even easier next time, since amazing new devices and apps like World Lens and the Sigmo Voice Translator are well on their way to making Star Trek‘s Universal Translator a reality.  I LOVE today’s technology!

And for those of you reading who do speak Portuguese, here is Google’s translated version. I’m sure it’s not a perfect translation, but for me, it made bridging the language barrier… a  piece of cake😉

É um pequeno mundo depois de tudo

Em Bakers Brasileiros e Star Trek Universal Tradutores 

Eu recebi recentemente um e-mail do Brasil , que foi escrito em Português . Embora eu não pudesse lê-lo , eu era capaz de descobrir o que era o meu coração Caleidoscópio e Moldes Borboleta . Desde que eu não falo Português, fui direto para o Google Translate . Depois de várias agradáveis ​​e-mails e para trás, que eu conheci no Brasil Baker Marilucy Ruppel e felizmente enviou seus moldes fora dela.

Aqui estão alguns dos bolos linda que ela fez com os moldes  ZANDA PANDA 

 Você pode ver mais de suas belas criações em seu site e sua página no Facebook e contatá-la em : marilucyruppel@hotmail.com

Eu ainda estou um pouco surpreso com o quão fácil era para se conectar com ela, para falar sobre os moldes e enviá-los para ela. Mas será ainda mais fácil da próxima vez, desde novos dispositivos e aplicativos incríveis , como Lens Mundial eo Sigmo Voice Translator estão bem no seu caminho para tornar tradutor de Star Trek Universal uma realidade. O amor de hoje a tecnologia!
