I can’t remember the last time that I went to the beach and built a sandcastle. I suspect that it has been years. But it’s not due to the fact that I don’t like sandcastles. In fact, sandcastles hold a lot of the same fantasy appeal for adults that they do for kids, which is probably what led to the design of this Sandcastle Cakelet Pan. The nonstick pan has six mini bundt cakes – two in each of three designs – modeled after real sandcastle designs.
A friend of mine already has this pan and the resulting cakes look great, especially if you opt for a yellow or other sandy-colored cake when you bake. The only thing to note is that, like so many highly intricate pan designs, it is crucial to grease the pan as well as you can (cooking spray will ensure you get all the nooks and crannies) to avoid sticks when you go to turn the cakes out for serving.
If you need (or want) something larger, Nordicware offers a full-sized sandcastle bundt pan, as well.
