Important!
Shape-Its food forms are oven-safe to 350 for up to 20 minutes. If your recipe calls for
a higher cooking/baking time or temperature, please modify your recipe to bake in
intervals that fall within these limits.

Also, remember to always use cooking spray regardless of the type of food you are making. This makes for an easier, cleaner release of the food from the food form.

Shape-Its Pancakes   back to top

  Preheat cooking surface to approximately 325 - 350.
  Prepare favorite pancake batter recipe or use any pancake mix.
  Turn both handles on food form to upright position.
  Spray inside of form with cooking spray, or use other cooking lubricant (shortening,     butter, etc). Be sure to cover entire inside surface. Repeat this step every two to     three pancakes, or as necessary.
  Place form on flat cooking surface. Pour approximately cup pancake batter into form.     Use a spoon to spread batter to edges of form, if necessary. Do not fill form(s) more     than 1/3 full.
  Cook until batter forms bubbles on top and pulls slightly from edges of the form.
  Carefully lift form from cooking surface. Turn pancake and let cook until golden brown.
  Remove and serve with favorite decorations/toppings.

Pancake Tips: Place 2-3 drops of food coloring per cup of pancake batter and mix well for colorful, fun pancakes. Use gels, sprinkles, food markers, fruits, berries, chocolate chips, etc. to decorate.

Shape-Its Cakes (single or double-layer)   back to top

  Preheat oven to 350.
  Prepare favorite cake batter recipe or prepare cake mix, as directed.
  Turn handles to upright position.
  Spray inside of form with cooking spray (may use floured baking spray, if desired).
  Place form(s) on greased baking sheet.
  Pour batter into form(s) filling approximately full; use spoon to spread batter to     edges, if necessary. (Batter may slightly seep under form edges)
  Bake 8-10 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  Remove baking sheet from oven and let cool for approx. 5 minutes.
  Carefully remove form(s) from cake(s) using handles to lift gently as cakes pull away     from sides of form(s).
  Using a spatula, transfer cakes to cooking rack and cool completely before decorating.

Cake Tips: Freeze cake(s) before frosting or decorating for greater ease in spreading. If making a two-layer cake, freeze cakes separately before stacking. Use favorite frosting recipe or try our own Cream Cheese Frosting recipe.

Shape-Its Pizza   back to top

  Preheat oven to 350.
  Prepare favorite pizza dough recipe or use prepared, refrigerated pizza dough.
  Roll dough onto greased baking sheet.
  Turn form handles to upright position.
  Spray inside of form(s) with cooking spray.
  Place form(s) on pizza dough and gently press until form has cut through dough (place     as many forms as will fit on dough).
  Without removing form(s), carefully remove excess dough from around/between
    the form(s).
  Place baking sheet with dough-filled forms in oven for 8 minutes.
  Remove baking sheet from oven and carefully spread pizza sauce to approx. inch     from edge of form(s). Add desired ingredients: cheese, meats, vegetables, etc. (If     letting children decorate own pizzas, let baking sheet cool for several minutes before     adding toppings)
  Return baking sheet to oven and let bake for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until done.
  Remove baking sheet from oven and let cook 4-5 minutes, or until handles are cool     enough to touch.
  Carefully remove form(s) by lifting in an upward direction.
  Using a spatula, remove pizza(s) from baking sheet and serve.

Pizza Tips: When decorating pizzas, use toppings to create eyes, spots, etc. Pepperoni slices work great for a turtle shell and olive slices for eyes. Pizza ingredients should be added in this order: sauce, cheese, meats, vegetables and a small amount of cheese on top. Be careful not to layer ingredients to deep to ensure proper baking of crust.

Shape-Its Gelatin   back to top

  Pour two 6 oz. packages of favorite gelatin dessert mix into large bowl.
  Add 2 c boiling water and stir for approx. 3 minutes, or until gelatin is dissolved;
    set aside.
  Turn form handles to upright position.
  Spray inside and outside of form(s) with cooking spray.
  Pour gelatin mixture into 13x9x2 baking dish, or use a baking sheet for thinner
    gelatin treats.
  Place form(s) into mixture inside baking dish, or baking sheet, to fit as many as     possible; form(s) can be touching.
  Refrigerate at least 3 hours, or until firm.
  To remove treats, dip bottom of dish/sheet in warm water for 20 seconds. Using a     butter knife, gently cut away excess gelatin from around forms(s) and lift form(s) out     of dish. Using a spatula, carefully lift out gelatin shapes.
  Decorate, if desired, and serve.

Gelatin Tips: Do not forget to spray both the inside and outside of form(s) with cooking spray. This makes removal much easier.

  Turn form handles to upright position.
  Spray inside of form(s) with cooking spray.
  Gently press cereal/marshmallow mixture into form(s) making certain that the form is     evenly filled - even the corners.

Marshmallow Treat Tips: For easier handling of mixture, set aside a small bowl or cup of warm water. Periodically dip finger tips into water before pressing mixture into form(s). This will prevent sticking and will make clean up much easier.
