Fall is baking season, a time when you want to start filling your house with fresh pies and the smell of warm spices after a hot summer where you might not have wanted to turn on your oven at all. It is easy to get into the feel of fall, and that is probably why there are so many fall-inspired baking pans out there. Fortunately, any excuse to bake during the season is a good one, and a new pan is a great excuse to have. The Autumn Mini Cakes Pan from Wilton is definitely fall-inspired. The pan bakes up tweleve single serving cakes in the shapes of acorns, leaves and pumpkins. Each design has a lot of detail, which means that the cakes don’t even need to be decorated to have a treat that is perfect for the season.
The pan is made of cast aluminum and it has a nonstick finish. Since there is a lot of detail here, it would be a good idea to grease and flour the cavities of this pan just to ensure that all the nooks and crannies of the cakes come out clean. It would be perfect for baking spice cake, gingerbread, pumpkin cake or anything with maple flavoring.
