Description Technical Specs
Alti Tante means Little Old Aunt in Swiss German. She is a character in the Basel Fasnacht--Basel's version of Mardi Gras. Alti-Tante is meant to lampoon old ladies of high society in the mid to late 1800s. The costumes of Alti-Tante are varied. In general they are over the top, dressing with no taste. The costume hat is oversized and has a flower at the top back as you see in this cookie mold. The Alti-Tante mask is marked by a long, carrot-size nose. The Alti-Tante character of this cookie mold is playing a drum--part of a drum and fife corp that is called a clique (or club). Many men dress as Alti-Tante in the parades at Basel's Fasnacht. Here is a link to Basel's Fasnacht page that shows Alti Tante.

Here at Springerle Joy, she also reminds us of a rather pleasant but ugly witch with her long nose, pointed hat and high heeled pointed boots. That's why we also call this mold the Good Witch cookie mold and recommend her for Halloween cookies! The details are very dimensional and will show well in a cookie.

This cookie mold reproduction is made of a food-safe resin that is unbreakable and waterproof. It comes with metal eyelet hanger attached at the top for display on a wall. In addition to making cookies, you can make ornaments using this mold (we recommend non-toxic modeling materials such as Paperclay or Delight).
