Thank you to all our backers who made SOMETHING happen!!!

Something is a food grade silicone baking form with endless possibilities. From brownies to bath bombs, you can make almost anything with Something.

Something is:

  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Oven Safe
  • Durable
  • Made in the USA
  • And fun

Plus, Something comes complete with an idea/cookbook with 365 ideas, literally something for every occasion.

We have been working on Something for nearly a year.  Last September we hired the best design team we could find to create the Something mold.

 
Over the past 6 months we have made 5 prototypes (some 3-D printed and some silicone), each time tweaking the mold to make it easier to use and more readable.

3 of the prototypes
3 of the prototypes

We are extremely happy with the design of the bakeform and have already made well over a hundred Somethings as we have tested the molds and explored the possibilities.  

We have our manufacturer lined up and we have already paid a deposit on the mold. They have started the tooling on the mold that will cast the final silicone bakeforms.

NOTE: The actual bakeform will be a dark red with the exception of the Kickstarter exclusive early bakeforms which will be green.

The bakeform will come attached to a spiral bound book with 365 ideas and recipes for Something. Many of the ideas and pictures will be submitted by you, our backers!!!

But wait - there's more!  We hope to make the back cover of the book  open up and become a stand for the book after you pop off your mold.

This is a concept drawing of what the idea book could look like and how the back cover could turn into a handy dandy stand for easy reading.

Something really is the perfect gift because the possibilities are endless. Take Something to a pot luck dinner.  Leave Something on the front porch for someone to step in.Tell your neighbor you left Something in their mailbox.The quips and anecdotes go on and on - trust us, we have been doing this for over a year.

This is your chance to stock up on Something and get Something early!

Get one for you and all your friends and family.  Plus, don't forget it will be even cooler to give the book to people when it has one of your ideas (and your name) in it!!!

Here are all the rewards for supporting something:

Some rewards come with the something extra package.  This means you will get a little bag of extras like: pens, stickers, magnets, and maybe even a SOMETHING tie tack if we hit $100,000. What and how many of these come in each extra package will be determined by stretch goals. For starters, it comes with something to write with:

When we hit $45,000 we will add something sticky to the extras package so you can put something on someone's shirt. (You know you want to say, "You have something on your shirt." to someone! ☺)

More extras will be revealed throughout the project!

For the most part the work on the mold is done.The exciting opportunity is we are counting on our early backers to make Something (hopefully a couple Somethings) and send in your ideas and pictures. If we use your ideas and/or pictures, we will give you credit in the book and if you have a website (you know who you are, you cookie and cake bloggers!) we will for sure include that in the book as well!!!

But can you imagine giving this to a friend and then turning to the page that has your name on it?  That is a COOL gift!

You can get even more books and bakeforms if you like!!! We have a goal to create 10,000,000 smiles.  This is just one of many projects to help us reach that goal. 

We are counting each Something bakeform shipped as 3 smiles towards our goal!

If you would like to add more bakeforms or bakeforms with books, just increase your pledge amount by $15 for every bakeform you want to add or $25 for every bakeform with book you want to add. And please message us to let us know what you are adding. (International backers, please add $5 per item for shipping.)

NOTE: If you back the $90 or up reward levels, you qualify for special pricing for additional books.

Thank you to all our backers who made SOMETHING happen!!!

Risks and challenges

This is my third project. I have a background in manufacturing and now I have a partner to help things run even more smoothly. Plus, we have a team of people to help with packaging and shipping. Our biggest task ahead is producing the cookbook. We already have about 200 solid ideas for Something but if no one sends in ideas and pictures, John and I will have to - I mean, will GET to make all the Somethings ourselves.
