When I first stared writing this entry, I was convinced that I wasn’t a fan of specialty cake pans. But, um, upon further reflection, that’s not exactly the case. It’s not that I think they’re practical, or useful, or particularly well made. In fact, in my head I know that they’re just a way for stores to sell more bakeware around the holidays.
But in my heart? I seriously I love them. Like, love them. They appeal to everything that is girly and cutsey and domestic in me. Every time Williams-Sonoma sends me an email desperately hocking their latest cake pan (in case you haven’t heard, things aren’t so good in the profit arena), I kind of secretly want to buy them.
My latest obsession? This Oreo cookie sandwich shaped cake pan. I know that it’s the most impractical thing ever and we have no more room in our cabinets – but, OMG, I want it! I would totally make a chocolate cake and fill it with the mint frosting I used on the whoopie pies.
So, all my secret admirers, take note: I wouldn’t turn this down if it showed up on my doorstep. Not at all. I might even write a post about it.
