Wholeport Giveaway: Alphabet Blocks Chocolate Mold

Baby Blocks Cake and Cupcakes

Disclosure:  Wholeport sent me an Alphabet Chocolate Mold  for review.  However, all opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.

I’m always looking for new fun (and easy) ideas for decorating cakes and cupcakes, so when Wholeport asked if I’d like to review one of their products and do a giveaway, I thought it would be fun!

Alphabet Mold

I chose to review the 28 Hole Letters Silicone Chocolate mold.  As soon as I saw this mold, I thought it would make the cutest “blocks” for baby shower cupcakes…. or even a cake!

Baby Blocks Cake

And guess what?  I was right!    The first thing I did was make B, A, B,and Y blocks to do “baby blocks” on a tiny 6″ round cake.

I used white almond bark with pink oil coloring (you can’t use regular gel colors for chocolate or almond bark!) and mixed it up.  I put the chocolate in a piping bag and piped the melted chocolate into the silicone mold.

After bumping it on the counter a few times to try and dislodge any bubbles, I stuck the whole thing in the freezer and let it get really good and hard/cold (about 15-20 minutes).  Once it was set and cold, the cubes of chocolate popped out very easily!

Baby Blocks Cupcakes

After making the cake, the blocks seemed almost too small and would certainly be for a larger cake, so I decided to give the cupcake idea a try and personally,  I think the cupcake toppers idea is best… the blocks are the perfect size for cupcake toppers!

You could use them for a baby shower, or even for a bridal shower doing blocks with hearts or the initials of the bride and groom.  They would also be great to do monogram toppers for wedding cupcakes.

The mold was easy to use and the chocolate came out very clean.  My biggest frustration was getting the chocolate to settle into all the tiny crevices and not having air pockets on the blocks.

    I have only just come across this site, I love it! The alphabet blocks look fab, I wish I had seen them for my cousins christening cake, they would have been perfect!

  2. Elle Morgan says

    I think the alphabet blocks chocolate mold is a fantatstic idea for decorating cakes for every occasion, especially for someone like me who has trouble keeping an even pressure when writing with icing or whose hands always seem to shake 🙁

    Beautiful cake. I have a friend who is pregnant and due in June. I am going to give her a baby shower and would love to make a cake too. I am a complete novice when it comes to cake decorating. However, I get many complements on the cakes I make. Love your article.

  6. Patti Burleigh says

    How adorable! I agree, they would be perfect for cupcakes, but also part of a larger decoration for the top of a cake. Thank you for sharing!

    How stinking cute is that? I love cookie molds – wonder how these would work for little tiny shortbread bites? Thanks for sharing the oil coloring tip – I didn’t know that gel colors wouldn’t work with chocolate. Love the way you used these. I’d love to try out this mold.

  12. Trudy says

    These blocks are adorable. Sometimes you need just a little something on top of cupcakes are on a small cake and these fit the bill.
    Thanks for sharing and the contest.

    These look awesome, I would spell BABY SHOWER on a cake with these! And since the kids just love chocolate it would be nice to just have a few laying around for after dinner : 0 THANKS!

  15. says

    Oh those are precious! They have so many adorable products, I don’t know how in the world to pick any favorites. The Winnie Ice Cube Tray Mold Silicone Cake Mold Baking Mold is really cute, and the rice molds are adorable! I really like the heart shaped pizza pie pans too… I could easily spend a LOT of money on that site if I had the extra spending money right now! lol

    First, I want to say THANK YOU in big letters for having a route in the giveaway for those of us who choose NOT to belong to Facebook. I won’t go into my tirade here of why I choose not to use this social media, even all the guys who work at my computer business I use to handle any computer problems refuse to have Facebook – that should tell the world something when the pros won’t touch it. Just this week millions of Facebook users had their passwords compromised by overseas hackers. My biggest beef is all the major corporations using this site which seems bizarre to me. Why does a multi-million dollar corporation need to have someone “like” them on Facebook to run a sweepstakes. This wouldn’t be too bad but what they’ve done is exclude ALL others not subscribed to the site. There, I’ve said my piece. Now to the important things in life……cake decorating! I like these blocks and how easy it is to make the letters. What I like is one product can be used for multiple types of events just by changing the colors and letters.

    Those are so cool! I think I would use them for Christmas somehow. They are very cute. I would even try non chocolate food in the mold I think 🙂 I would love to win.
