We knew the FormBox had the potential to revolutionize the work of foodmakers, chefs and chocolatiers – but it was only when we started properly looking into it, that we realized the breadth of the foodie things this machine can do.
Make molds out of everyday objects
If an object fits on the FormBox’s tray, you can make a mold out of it. Mayku chefs and chocolatiers have made molds out of fruit, vegetables, nuts and other edible objects; as well as foraged things like shells, pine cones and seed pods; and novelty objects made from wood, hard plastics, plaster, steel, aluminum, resin and silicone.
Commission designs for mold making
You might not have access to a 3D printer or laser cutter, but you can commission makers to create amazing custom designs which can then be turned into eye-catching edible goods.
Use readily available craft materials
Your local art shop contains a treasure trove of goodies for creating interesting objects for mold-making. Readily available materials that can be used to make molds include: air drying clay, polymer clay, playdough, balsa wood and styrofoam (for carving), as well as paper or card.
Repurpose leftover kitchen stuffs
Ever wondered what to do with unused veg or leftover cookie dough – why not use it to make a mold for an interesting banana-shaped cake? Things like old potatoes, cookie cut-offs and leftover dough are perfect for making all manner of weird and wonderful molds.
Foodstuffs that can be used with the FormBox
Below is a list of all the different ingredients that you can use with the FormBox. Mayku Form Sheets are food-safe and durable meaning you can use the same mold over and over with different ingredients.
Chocolate (bars, truffles, lollies)
No-bake cake mixtures eg rocky roads or rice crispy cakes
