Fun with Molds

When I was contacted by WholePort and was asked to work with some of their products, I was immediately drawn to the extensive selection of cake/candy molds that are on their web site in their baking section. I thought it would be fun to get into the kitchen this weekend and try out one of them. My younger son jumped right in and helped me to mix up one of my favorite brownie recipes to use in this beautiful mini-bundt cakes mold.

My son's favorite cup was the star shape and he asked me to put three of the star-shaped brownies in his lunch tomorrow.

I have actually never worked with molds before so it took a little getting used to, a little trial and error so to speak to bake the brownie for the perfect amount of time to make them release easily from their cups. On my first batch, I didn't bake the brownies long enough and had to return them to the oven. I got better on the second batch and had it down to a science by the third batch. They baked for around 25 minutes.

To make the mold more secure when baking, I placed it inside of a small baking pan in the oven. I also generously sprayed the mold with cooking spray before baking. I think this mold can be used in numerous ways: cakes, brownies, candy, and gelatin. Wouldn't these be beautiful as ice cubes filled with fruit or mint and floating in a punch bowl? Yes!

So sweet!
Thank you to WholePort for providing me with the molds for testing.


  1. I am all about how something looks and those, my friend, look absolutely scrumptious!

  2. I love silicon molds and have several...although not this one:-( What beautiful little brownie bites it has made; I'm all for little bites, XOXO
