Just in Time For Summer HABA Silicone Molds Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.

     I can't believe it is summer already.  Yesterday was Jayden's last day of Kindergarten and my last day teaching this school year.  It all goes so quick.  I am looking forward to lots of fun times this summer.  There is so much happening over the summer.  First we have a friends baby shower, then Jayden's birthday, summer vacation trip, Independence Day, and so much more.  With more time off this summer then most since I switched jobs I am looking forward to some fun get together's.  And everyone knows when you get together food is important.  I love making fun treats for family and friends.  Recently I learned that HABA has some fun silicone molds.  Now I love HABA products.  Some of Evans favorite toys are made from HABA like the Color Button Pegging game and the Rainbow Whirls Pegging Game.  I was sent a fun assortment of silicone molds including the jungle snake cake mold, summer flower cake mold, safari cupcake mold, and ice cube tray water party.


     The HABA Jungle Snake Cake Mold is perfect for my boys.  The silicone mold is flexible and easy to clean.  All you have to do is pour your bake mix in, bake it in the oven, decorate, and enjoy a fun delicious dessert.  This mold comes with a brochure that has three easy to follow recipes.  I decided to try this with a brownie mix.  I filled the mold with the mix and was happy to find that it was easy to transport and move to the oven.  The mold was sturdy and held its shape even when full.  It took longer to bake then the directions on the package, but that is to be expected since it is a different shape.  I unfortunately was in a hurry and tried to remove it from the mold before it was cool so the snake fell apart.  But it did have partial shape of the snake.  Next time I will be a little more patient so the snake shape turns out.  I know the boys will love this.


     The HABA Silicone Summer Flower Cake Mold is so cute.  I can't wait to try it for my nieces.  They will love a beautiful flower cake.  Again all you have to do is pour your mix, bake, decorate, and enjoy.  It is made from the same sturdy silicone as the snake and holds up well.  The brochure also comes with three recipes.  This mold comes in 2 pieces.  The outside petals and the middle.  This makes it great for decorating if you want to do different colors or if you want to raise the middle for a fun look.  This mold would make a great summer cake for anyone, but especially for little girls.

     The HABA Silicone Safari Cupcake Mold is perfect for an animal lover.  There is a hippo, lion, elephant, lion face, crown, and paw print.  This mold like the others is simple and easy to use.  Just pour your mix, bake, decorate and enjoy.  I love that you can use these and do not need the baking cups.  Less to buy, less trash, and so much cuter.  The brochure has three recipes to use with this mold also.  You can make cupcakes, muffins, brownies, chocolate candies, or more.  The mold is strong and easily used.  I love the lions and paw prints since that is my school mascot.  I will definitely be using this to make some yummy muffins and cupcakes for my students.  The mold not only has the outside shape of the animals, but the facial features too.  This makes decorating so much easier and the cupcakes so much cuter.

     The last mold I received was the HABA Silicone Water Party Ice cube mold.  This tray is great for fun summer ice cubes.  The tray has 6 spaces that are whale, worm, shark, penguin, octopus, and swimming ring.  Again this mold makes ice cubes fun and easy.  You just pour your mix, freeze, and enjoy.  The mold is not only the outside shape, but the features of the creature.  You can pour just about any liquid item to freeze for a fun summer treat.  These are great for keeping a summer party drink cool.  The brochure includes three recipes that can be used.  These recipes look so yummy including a milky fruit cocktail.  I went the easy route in my first try.  I make some pink lemonade and molded it into ice.  I put it in a cup of water to see the ice cubes better.  Sometimes lemonade can be too strong so this is a great way to dilute it.  I also think it would be great to do pink lemonade molds in regular lemonade.  I was surprised by how perfect the shapes came out.  Jayden has a birthday party coming up and I think these would be great for the punch.  I love the shapes.  Since it gets so hot here ice cubes are a must all the time.  I also think the molds can be used for chocolate for some tiny treats.


     These molds will definitely be used at my house this summer.  So much to make and I like that there is are so many ways to make them different and fun.  HABA has a few other great silicone molds available including Popsicle molds and princess cupcakes.  Any of these molds would make a summer celebration a lot more fun.
