Bake Buddies are baking molds that allow you to make anthropomorphic shapes, which you can then decorate into different characters and creatures. These look fun, and the possibilities are really endless, so let’s see if they work or not.
When trying to come up with baked goods that nobody has seen before, and it can be hard because things get so popular so fast. For example, if you were used to wowing people with your cake pops, they’re probably old news by now. Time to show them something they haven’t seen before in order for you to retain your crown as the best baker on the block.
The makers of Bake Buddies claim that you can create different creatures with ordinary cake and cookie batter, as their 3D molds make it so they come out with arms and legs. They say that kids enjoy making these, and decorating them so they look like actual figures. They also claim that there are thousands of different characters to make, and that the molds themselves are able to stand up in the oven, so it bakes all sides evenly. They say the molds are non-stick, and easy to use, and you just pop them in the dishwasher when you’re done.
The hype is that these are following in the footsteps of trendy things like cake pops and pie pops. There is a big market for desserts and sweet edibles, so it only makes sense that people would want to make characters out of cake.
Bake Buddies molds are sold for $26 which includes shipping and you end up getting 6 molds. There’s a 30 day money back guarantee in place, but keep in mind that the original price is $10 so if you end up returning them that’s all you’ll be refunded, and you’ll be responsible for return shipping costs. When looking at potential competition we haven’t seen anything else that promises to make cake characters, or show you how to decorate them, so there isn’t a comparable product to gauge whether the price is right.
These should be just as easy, or easier, than making an ordinary cake. They can best be compared to cake pops, since those are a way to decorate cake but can be tricky to make. Keep in mind that you’re going to have to do some practicing unless you’re already adept at icing a cake. For those that have a creative side and are good with this type of thing, you’ll have no trouble from the start and will be making professional looking cake creatures in no time.
The cool thing about Bake Buddies is that cake has now gone vertical. They stand up on their own so it brings a whole new dimension and dynamic to ordinary cake. You can style these characters after the birthday boy or girl, or like they show in the video you can use it as a theme, making different animals and characters. Once you have the base done, it’s up to you to make the decorations look good. They give you a guide that should help you through the process, but it’s going to take a steady hand and an eye for detail if you want them to look good.
Final Bake Buddies Review
Bake Buddies are getting our Thumbs Up rating because they let you be a lot more creative than normal if you’re used to just making ordinary cake. How much fun would it be to find out that you can eat the entire cake topper? At this price point it’s not a bad deal considering it’s shipped right to you, and they’re doing remarkable things with silicone bakeware so there’s no reason why these shouldn’t work, be non-stick, and provide you with a new canvas from which to work.
If you’re always looking for ways to bring something new to your baking, this is one you can’t pass up. Just be sure to follow the instructions and guide that comes with it until you get the hang of it. From there you can come up with your own unique creations.
