Springtime and Springerle

With Springtime arriving, give Springerle a thought for your Teas and Receptions. These will surely make long lasting impressions on your guests. But don’t limit yourself to cookies alone. Our molds produce great Marzipan and Chocolate Clay candy. As well as edibles, our molds may be used for art projects such as Paper Castings and Clay work.

Above is a cookie I made with our Persch Swan Mold #1560. Its a beauty and at 1 3/4" in diameter it is perfect for Wedding Receptions and Teas. Below is the mold we created from replicating an original wooden mold. It was sent to us from Germany by Herr Persch for replication.

New Exclusive Molds Are Being Added.

This mold measures 6" x 4 7/8" and has 9 individual images. The cookies produced will measure about 1 3/4” x 1 1/4”. The images are all very detailed and have good depth and dimension showing fur, feathers, clothing. The original mold dates to 1846 and belonged to a farming family in Kirchheim unter Teck in Germany and now resides in the Mildred E. Jenson Collection in the USA. This mold is item #1529 and sells for $33.95.

An "Old World" Santa that comes from the town of Biberach an der Riss in Germany and dates to about 1850. The mold measures 10 3/8" x 5 5/8" and will produce a very dimensional cookie that measures 8" x 3". This mold is item #1524 and sells for $46.95. Using edible colors, this Santa will look his best in a blue or perhaps forest green coat. Paper casting from this mold are equally impressive and will make a great framed 3D picture. Order early to avoid dissappointment .

Cool Santa for Gingerbread

I just finished pouring silicone to make a couple more “Mother” molds. This Santa arrived yesterday. I prepped it last night with mineral oil to help seal it and today I used Vaseline to seal the worm holes so the silicone would not travel to far into the surface and become stuck. The Santa came from the town of Biberach an der Riss in Germany. The owner gave me a date of about 1850 for its creation. It’ll become a Speculaas and gingerbread mold. Paper casting will also be made from it for framing.

Most Molds not available until Spring 2010

We have gotten back very positive feedback on the molds we have sent out.
To make things smoother, we have decided to make our initial opening for the majority of our unique molds in the Spring of 2010. Some pictures of the molds to be introduced will be posted but a few will not be unveiled before they are posted for sale. A few molds will be available this Fall season. A couple never before available anywhere that will be sure to please.

We have recently added to our main site, We have posted a small part of the Sara B. Carlisle collection. The "Adventurer" mold is fantastic with all its pictures and "possible" story.

More Later.

Yes, we can replicate your molds for you too!

It has been busy these last 2 weeks preparing a few more antique wooden molds for replication. We have also been getting new equipment in and setting it up for production. We promise to introduce some never before available molds and motifs.

A few times now since we began sharing our new venture, we have been asked about replicating molds that belong to others. The answer is yes. We can when the time permits also replicate your molds. The fee will depend on the size of the mold to be replicated and the number of procedures that are required to produce your working replica.
Generally the fee would start at about $75.00. The materials involved are expensive and it takes time. The "Mother" mold you pay for is yours. A good "Mother" mold can last for 100 or more castings before it begins to degrade. You would get the "Mother" mold and a copy of your mold. We would keep nothing except our payment. If your mold is unusual we would certainly ask about purchasing copy rights or working out something else with you. Totally up to you.

Custom colored cookie molds? Sure, we do that.

Being produced for the baker, these molds may be ordered in colors to suite your tastes. The wood look is surely the most desirable but what is most important about these unique molds are their images. So why not express your individuality with your favorite colors.

Below are some recent examples.

Pecan brown - Pale Yello/Green - Orange

Pale Yellow/Green - Orange - Pecan brown

Very light clear Rose - Minty Green - Med. clear Brown

Pecan Brown - Minty Green

After using the crystal clear multi image molds that were produced first, I'd suggest a colored mold. While pressing a large mold, say the Stuttgart Nativity, would be easier to press with the clear molds, small multi image clear molds may not be the best thing.
