Building Bricks and Figures Ice Silicone Molds

I've been accumulating a little collection of silicone molds for candy, ice, and other moldable things, so I was more than happy to test trays that made building-brick shaped products and odd little people.

Or maybe they're robots. I'm really not sure.

They've got all the usual properties of silicone - temperature range that makes them fine for freezer, oven, and dishwasher. They're pretty much nonstick. And they're flexible.

I tried them with ice. I always need ice. And then I remembered that plain white ice doesn't photograph all that well, so I filled the trays with brewed coffee and used some milk to add some accents here and there.

They worked just fine, except for a few where I poured too fast and ended up with bubbles in the pegs of the building blocks. But let's face it - they're just ice cubes. I wasn't planning on building anything with them. And now I know better.

Folks with kids who like Legos will love these. I doubt kids will be all that impressed with coffee-flavored ice cubes, but of course you could use them for candy or for baking small treats.

Who's it for: Whimsically-minded folks. Or people with kids.

Pros: Made from silicone.

Cons: For some uses, it might be hard to get the product unmolded, because the "pegs" are small. It might take some practice to get it right.

Wishes: Hmmm. None I can think of.

Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.
