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!
