3D Sea Creature Cookie Molds

The biggest complaint that people have about cookie pans and cookie stamps is that they don’t get the level of detail that they want in the finished cookies. Cookie pans often simply help you get a general outline of a cookie shape and the details are subtle. Cookie stamps let you deliver detail to your cookie dough more clearly, but the shape of the cookies is often lost or altered by the act of stamping. One potential solution, for those looking to get an impressive amount of detail into their baked goods, is to opt for 3D Cookie Molds instead of cookie pans. These molds, which are particularly impressive in the Jellyfish and Mermaid options that make up the sea creature collection, shape the cookies and stamp them with a tremendous amount of detail as the cookies bake. The jellyfish, for instance,  has lots of wriggling tentacles, while the mermaid comes outfitted with a seashell top and has all the scales in her tail visible. The finished cookies look extremely impressive and a little touch of luster dust is all you need to set of the design, no thick layer of icing required.

The catch with these molds is that the cookies are extra-large and really are more like art than a simple treat you’ll want to pop into your mouth without a second thought. That being said, if you wanted a cookie that didn’t need to be admired before eating, you might as well stick with a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe and not go to the trouble of molding/shaping/stamping your cookies. They’re visually impressive and sure to generate a big stir of appreciation – both for the look and the taste – when you serve them.

The molds are cast from handmade sculptures in silicone and must be hand-washed after use. They can be used repeatedly for one batch of cookie dough and a recipe is included with the molds. The Jellyfish measures 5 1/2 x 4-inches and the Mermaid measures 6 x 3 1/4-inchs.

    Thanks so much for featuring my Artesão Cookie Molds on your amazing blog! It’s an honor. My gallery of molds can be found at http://artesaocookiemolds.com/ for those interested in seeing and learning more. (By the way, they are dishwasher safe although I like to hand wash them.) Happy baking, Susan Moniz.

    Peggy – Yes, they are available at Uncommon Goods. There is a link to their website in the post.

    Susan – My pleasure! They are absolutely lovely! I’m glad to know that they are dishwasher safe, as well, just to give people another option when they’re baking!
