Giveaway: Choc A Bloc mould

I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of silicone bakeware. I have very little and feel that I need some persuading on its merits. I know lots of you are huge fans and use little else but I’ve always preferred metal despite the – sometimes – hassle of lining it. So when Mustard Gifts offered to send me a sample of their best selling Choc A Bloc mould I wasn’t entirely sure how it would go.

I was intrigued by a mould that lets you bake a cake to look like a bar of chocolate but what I actually wanted was a big bar chocolate. So I made fridge cake. Peanut butter cup fridge cake to be precise.

And I think this is what I’ll be using it for in the future. I loved being able to offer up – rather large – chunks of fridge cake. It did pull slightly in some places but this was down to the peanut butter that had settled in the corners rather than any flaw with the mould in this case.

From a practical baking point of view the mould is temperature safe from -40c to 220c and can be chucked in the microwave and dishwasher.

I have one Choc A Bloc mould to give away to one Fishfingers for tea reader. There’s a rafflecoptor widget below, with one mandatory entry and four bonus entries.

You can also find Mustard on Facebook and Twitter and they’re well worth a look at if you’re on the search for a gift that’s fun and a little bit different.

    I struggle with the concept of silicone bakeware (because I love my tins which all have set purposes – brownie tin, banana bread/meatloaf tin, etc) but hadn’t thought of using them for individual serving sizes… Also, peanut butter cup fridge cake sounds like a win to me.

    Like you, I’m not totally convinced by silicon bakeware but saying that I rather like the look of this chocolate bar mould and reckon the kids would find it great fun to have a chocolate cake in the shape of a chocolate bar…

    I’ve never tried silicon, but that chocolate bar mould looks fun.
