Garden Patch Cakelet Pan

Garden Patch Cakelet Pan

There are some vegetables that any kid – no matter how picky an eater – will happily munch away on. Vegetables made out of cake, for instance, fit this description quite well. This Garden Patch Cakelet Pan is a new piece of bakeware at Williams Sonoma this spring. It bakes 20 miniature cakes, each of which is roughly the size of a mini-muffin, in carrot, cabbage, radish and pea pod shapes. For such small baked goods, the pan contributes a lot of detail to each veggie. They can be frosted and decorated to give them a more “authentic” look, or simply presented as-is. Since the pan only bakes the mini cakes and not the whole garden, if you want to “plant” the veggies for serving (as they’re shown in the photo above), just use the mini cakes to top off a batch of brownies or a chocolate sheet cake.I would opt for a carrot cake or other type of veggie-based cake, like a chocolate beet cake or a chocolate zucchini cake. You could also go with a savory bread or cake and make these part of the main meal!

  1. Oreo cookie crumbs would make great “dirt” for a garden.

  2. Would you please forward this to my sister with a “good birthday gift” tag attached?

  3. I am sooo doubting that pan produces *those* imaged goodies on the left. Marzipan will do the job- not that pan.

  4. How funny! I just posted about this very same pan on my blog this morning.
