I am entering a competition. How can
you help me?
Remember, mold use depends on the rules of the competition. Some
competitions do not restrict the use of molds, while others limit
them to specific categories such as geometric forms. A savvy competitor
recognizes a judge does not want to see a chef using a mold as a
crutch. If you want to earn the highest points, focus on developing
an innovative utilization of the mold. For example, making a mold
of a leaf is one thing, but making a mold of a leaf and then altering
it into the wing of a butterfly in another thing.
We can help you push the envelope without pushing the judges.
Strict confidentiality is always observed.
Is custom mold
making worth the investment?
Yes. However, we recommend you mold something impressive. Wealthy clients
are not impressed by decals and crafty knick knacks. Be realistic. You
need to invest in order to profit. We have formulas in place to help
determine the feasibility of a project before it is put into motion.
Can you make me a plastic mold?
No. Although we own vacuum forming equipment and use if for the occasional
prototype or competition one-off, we do not offer this as a service.
For the most part, we find the process too restrictive to meet the high
quality our clients expect.
I am looking for something special but I don’t
know exactly what.
Often our clients come to us and describe the type of person they need

need a unique item that promotes my business.
Executive chefs understand it best. The customer’s last impression
of the meal is a strong one. Perhaps you already close the meal with
a mini delectable. Upgrading your production and using molds to make
these mini’s en mass is a cost efficient way to promote your restaurant.
Are you a French restaurant? Why not make a few elegant chocolate escargots
to bring the evening to a close. (It is likely the guests will want
to buy a box of them to take home.) A second sale after the meal is
not a bad thing. We have lots of ideas for you.
I need to make special gifts for our VIP clients.
Today, executive pastry chefs are the resident corporate artist in their
hotels and resorts. The talent is there, but not always the time. Therefore,
we recommend investing in a small library of molds to have at the ready
for those unexpected moments. Take a hint from the Chicago Four Season’s
Hotel who hosts numerous authors while they are taping the Oprah Winfrey
Show. Shortly after the author arrives in their room, a flawlessly cast,
full size, ornamentally embossed chocolate book is presented to them.
What do you think the famous author takes home with them after their
visit? It’s not the imported marble floors nor the fine wood work
nor the $50,000 chandelier. It’s the chocolate book! Fifteen dollars
worth of chocolate used wisely provides a huge return. You can bet when
someone asks who made the book, they will expound on the pleasant stay
at your hotel.
Influential people know influential people and VIP amenities are high
end business cards. Don’t miss the opportunity to impress them
with a few simple techniques. We can help you design impressive amenities
for your loyal customers.
I have a product that needs to be updated.
We call this a product tweak. It is an important aspect of a business’s
evolution and adaptation to new and changing markets. A keen understanding
of brand position and marketing is critical to make this type of project
I am involved in a special event where we need to promote our brand.
Your company sends you around the world to give demonstrations, or maybe

the value of these investments and put a little bit more in to the mix
to achieve the Wow effect.
