I bought this mold when I was visiting Edinburgh in October from my home in Switzerland. It was my first purchase from Lakeland, I had heard great things about the shop from friends so was so excited to buy this mold as a memory of my Scottish trip. I am so disappointed!!! I made a batch last night, following the recipe on the box, and the shortbread was unevenly cooked (dark on the outside, undercooked in the middle) but the worst was that the shortbread would not come out of the mold!! I let it cool down but it would not budge out of the mold. I had to use a knife and spatula to chip it out. And the bits that came out did not have any pattern on them. I was so looking forward to my first Lakeland purchase and to making shortbread for the holidays, but this mold was a HUGE waste of money!!!!!!
A note from the team
Many thanks for placing your review. Sorry the shortbread stuck. I'll be in touch shortly to help.Handy Tips...your dough may not have been firm enough or you may not have pressed the dough firmly enough into the mold. One other reason could be that you did not cook them quite long enough. I'll be in touch shortly to help.
