I love to watch sports, but I’m not the type of sports fan that goes crazy when “my” team wins. I like it when “my” team wins (if I’m rooting for a particular side), of course, but I’d really just rather see a good game. For the big games, I’d prefer to enjoy them with a crowd to share in the excitement – and, of course, in the snacks. I’ve made football shaped cakes for Super Bowl parties and decorated sugar cookies with colorful helmets for each team. A shaped cookie cutter can go a long way in coming up with sports-themed treats, especially since it doesn’t take up much room, so it’s a good tool to have on hand. If you’ve got some space, however, this All Star Sports Pan gives you a little more versatility because it bakes one sports themes cake for each of six different sports: football, soccer, basketball, tennis, hockey and baseball.
Each of the balls depicted on this cast aluminum pan has enough detail in the seams to make the balls easily recognizable, so there is no need to slave over the cakes with a piping bag and a lot of colored frosting to try and make a ball design (anyone who has ever tried to pipe out a soccer ball pattern will know how difficult it is).
