Pimp That Snack is a website that exists to celebrate super-sized, homemade versions of popular snacks, as well as to challenge people to get in the kitchen and experiment to blow up whatever candies, cookies and cakes they can. I’ve mentioned the site before and tried two “pimps” mysef: Giant Hostess Cupcake Cake (with recipe) and Giant Animal Cookie (no recipe, just for fun). The general protocol for making a giant snack is using regular cake pans and kitchen equipment, or jerryrigging custom molds, to try and approximate the shape you want to make. I never thought I’d see Williams-Sonoma stocking a cake pan that cut out this part of the snack-pimping process. Their Sandwich-Cookie Cake Pan is designed to produce a cake that looks just like a sandwich cookie (an Oreo, to be specific). It even has the word “cookie” printed in the center of each round and some other detailing that looks very similar to what you’d find on store-bought sandwichcookies.
There are two pans included in the set, and both are actually made of cast aluminum, not of silicone, so you should get a great finished shape from the pan without having to worry about accidentally bending the cake and breaking the design.
