Additionally Chef Palazzolo will be writing a blog on Cake Central where he will share tutorial videos and various projects that can be accomplished with the MakeYourOwnMolds products.

Welcome Dominic!! (I am the lady with the red truck at the Columbus ICES!) I have just bought a piece of lace that I am going to attempt to make a mold with this weekend. You are always so helpful - it will be great to have you here!

Somethin-Sweet - Thank you for the feedback on my tutorial. I am glad it it helped you with your lace appliques.

Loucinda - I am still admiring that truck of yours - you should post a picture of it so others can see what we are talking about. Good luck with your lace project. I am here if you need me!

I've been to your website a few times recently and in the past. I've spent a small fortune on molds and now I'm very interested in making my own.

Are your products sold in stores? Would like to save on shipping whenever possible.

Hi Dominic!
Glad to see you finally made it here.
I was the first to purchase stuff off your new website and you called me to see how my experience was and we talked cake forever! Looking forward to all your new products and tutorials. Got lots of projects planned so def will need your help.

MYOM-Dominic Posted 11 Nov 2009 , 7:25pm

sweetreasures - I sell my products direct in order to keep them fresh instead of aging on a shelf. We do not mark up our shipping charges and I think you will find that our shipping is pretty reasonable.

Teekakes, tatorchip, Kitagrl and cib thank you for the warm welcome. It is really great to be here where so many of my professional friends hang out. This is going to be fun.

Hi Dominic, I was the one from Cake Camp Las Vegas. The guy with big glasses who bought the containers on your table.

Anyways, I love your product and I already ran out. I was thinking of getting them in bulk but it says on your website that the mixture has a shelf life of one year from the date of purchase. Would this be the same if they are freshly made since I am thinking of getting a custom color?

Uniqueask Posted 12 Nov 2009 , 9:24am

Hi Dominic, Welcome to CC,
Glad to have you here I have watched your videos, as well, and will be considering making a purchase soon, so I am very glad that you are here to help us. Thank you so very much, and again welcome to our community.

Rylan and Uniqueask - thank you for the welcome post!

Yes, yes, yes pleaseeee!! thumbs_up.gif and you'll be my favorite person after that icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

elliebuff Posted 12 Nov 2009 , 10:36pm

I just got my order from your company late last week! I can't decide what to make with the silicone...I don't want to waste it!!

MYOM-Dominic Posted 13 Nov 2009 , 7:18pm

elliebuff - all silicones loss their reactivity over time. I recommend that you use my products within a year from the date of purchase. So, if you don't start now you may very well be wasting it anyway. Take a look on your refrigerator - fridge magnets are some of my favorite objects to make molds from.

3GCakes Posted 13 Nov 2009 , 7:31pm

Welcome! Can't wait to try it!

elliebuff Posted 13 Nov 2009 , 10:43pm

I know I need to get started...thanks for the idea to use magnets...it's a good place to start!

cylstrial Posted 17 Nov 2009 , 2:52am

MYOM-Dominic Posted 17 Nov 2009 , 4:22pm

cylstrial - I am glad you are excited about this forum. Are you contemplating on how to make a mold of something? I'm all ears

MYOM-Dominic Posted 17 Nov 2009 , 4:26pm

cylstrial - I am glad you like this forum -- any mold projects you need help on?
