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.
I received a Choc A Bloc mould free of charge.
