Dominic was kind enough to bring a sample of his molding process to our cake club. It was really wonderful to see the new stuff. What is going to be better is that he will be offering these molds at a fantastic price point where everyone can afford to buy them. This will give decorators a lot more options now that we can afford all these pricey molds! Thank you Dominic.
