Cakesicles are popsicle-shaped cakes that bake in a unique pan and, when finished, can be skewered with popsicle sticks to give the cakes (or cookies) you bake with the pan a fun look. Norpro’s Heart-Sicle Pan offers another variation on this unique type of cake. This nonstick pan features heart-shaped molds that are a similar size to the popsicle molds, and the cakes baked in it can be mounted on popsicle sticks and presented in just the same way as the popsicle-shaped cousins. Hearts are good all year round, but they are particularly nice around holidays like Valentine’s Day, as well as during anniversaries and birthdays.
Cookies and brownies hold up very well in a pan like this one because they are sturdy enough to support their own weight when on a stick. Cakes will hold up quite well, too, thanks to the size of the pan. However, for the sturdiest cakesicles you should sandwich two together with some frosting, insert your popsicle stick into the center, then dip the whole thing in glaze or melted chocolate to hold everything in place and rally create a finished popsicle look.
