Cakesicles

 Cakesicle

Anyone looking for an alternative to cakes and cupcakes for their baking this summer might want to check out the cakesicles baking pan. This baking pan has popsicle-shaped depressions that, as you can imagine, produce cakes and cookies in that same shape. The popsicles are fairly shallow, but there is no mistaking the design.

Cookies are thick and sturdy enough to hold their shape well if you slide a popsicle stick inside to complete the look, but cake can crumble when you put it on a stick. Instead, take two cakesicles, sandwich them together with frosting and dunk them into chocolate (white, milk or dark) to give them a real popsicle look. This is how the cakesicle in the photo above was made. It has a yellow cake, orange buttercream, white chocolate coating and sprinkles.  I confess that this cakesicle was from a party, and not something I put together, but the pan comes with recipes that should really streamline the process. . These treats would be fantastic at a kids party or at any summer gathering – especially since you don’t need an easily accessible freezer to keep these from melting!

    My first thought was: perfect for the kids! My second thought: why the kids…wouldn’t this be fun to serve at a dinner party! Thank you. I’m going to get that pan pronto!

    Oh man, Nicole! Thanks for sharing this one. Those cakesicles look so darn good. I’m totally going to have to invest in this pan. You see, I really like ice cream, but I love cake more…and there’s something totally fabulous about having cake and icing in ice cream form!

    Very cute! I wouldn’t buy a special pan for the one time I’d actually use it, but they’re really cute.

    If you don’t want to invest in the pan, you can try it with that madeleine pan we all bought years ago!

    What kind of white coating is that and how did they get it on so perfectly? That looks better than the one in the ad for the pan.

    Wow! This is very appropriate for summer vacation as the kids want to try something new and exciting. Perfect for parties, picnics and short travels.

    I think I’ll start checking the pan for this. Thanks!

    OMG! My kids just absolutely LOVED these. I think they ate about 5 each, lol. The only problem now is they constantly are asking me to make them for them. I brought a batch to school today for a last day of school treat – they were a huge hit!

    The person who said you can substitute baking soda for cream of tartar is mistaken. Baking soda is alkaline and cream of tartar is acidic. The chemistry is completely different and they can never be substituted for each other.
