You might not think butter, in all its forms, needs to be spruced up. A stick, a tub, good enough, right? Wrong! You could be dressing your toast and your table with yellow edible fatty substance molded into the shape of a rooster or lamb. These German Butter Molds have been around since the 18th century (I know, where have I been?). You can transform a boring stick of butter or your own homemade variety into these three-dimensional shapes by soaking the intricately hand-carved hardwood molds in cold water for 30 minutes, then pack with the butter, press together and chill in the fridge. Your dinner parties will never be the same.
