Coming up with unique or personalized bridal shower or wedding favors can be taxing. I’ve found that going with something simple like candy and lollipop molds allows for customization without having to invest a lot of time and money into the process. One of the more attractive candy molds for bridal showers and wedding favors is the three piece Wedding Favor Candy Mold from Wilton. The pieces are about a little less than two inches in size and there are compatible molds that you can use for even more variety.
The three designs featured in this plastic candy mold include a very attractive double joined heart, three tiered wedding cake and wedding bells. The beauty of these shapes is that they can be used for a wedding shower or as treats for wedding favors. They are completely customizable; you can use whatever color chocolate you want and they are extremely easy to decorate. The double heart can be used at other times of the year like Valentine’s Day and the cake can be used for other holidays or for birthday parties by changing the color chocolate that is used.
You can use this to make other things like designer soaps or plaster castings but you will want to make sure that once these molds are used for something other than chocolate they are never used for food items again. The plastic can absorb scents from things like perfume and additives and you wouldn’t want any food items to come in contact with them. When a mold that I own gets damaged or has a crack or two in it I use a permanent marker and put an “X” on the edge of it so I know that it is to be used for non-food based crafts.
What are some other uses for the candy pieces? You can use them to decorate cupcakes or to create a side border on a sheet cake. As mentioned, the hearts and tiered cake can be used for other holidays; for Halloween you can use orange and brown chocolate to make a creepy looking cake and the hearts can be used year round when you want to spoil that someone special in your life with some sweet treats.
Given that this mold only makes six pieces at a time (two of each design) you may want to consider buying more than one mold to work with. One of the newest trends in my area is bridal and wedding shower favor parties where a group of people get together and help assemble favors. This can be a lot of fun and something that helps cross one more bridal shower or wedding shower project off of your list. The Wedding Favor Candy Mold sells for about two dollars so if you need to buy more than one, it isn’t going to break your budget.
