That’s the first 2 fully modelled tray shapes now licensor approved. Feedback on the 3D cake moulds from the licensors is brilliant. The designers who developed the actual characters for the film think the cake is the best franchised on brand edible product they have seen. Thanks for all the help with these. Looking forward to plenty more on the horizon!
Jeff Gale, Kensey Foods
