Dinosaur Cakelette Pan

Dinosaur Cakelette Pan

When I was a kid, I had lots of books about dinosaurs. My favorites were the ones that had extremely detailed renderings of the dinosaurs, down to the scaly texture of their reptilian skin, the dirt in their claws and the gleam on T-Rex’s sharp teeth. I still like dinosaurs, and that is why this Dinosaur Cakelette Pan appealed to me the moment I saw it.

The heavy, cast-aluminum pan from Nordicware bakes eight dinosaur-shaped cakes. There are two each of stegosaurus,tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops and apatosaurus (or a similar looking herbivore. All of the molds are very detailed, down to claws and teeth. Unfortunately, not every one of these details is going to come through on a baked cake, but most of them will and you’ll end up with some pretty impressive looking mini-cakes. On top of it all, the pan itself is shaped like a dinosaur foot print, and while that may not have anything to do with how the cakes bake up, it’s definitely my favorite feature of this pan.

    And I am also huge fan of dinosaurs. My favorite is Argentinosaurus. I think that your idea about this cookie is very unique and it should be like a example of doing cookies in dinosaurs shape

    I just saw this pan in a store the other day and wished my son was still younger.
