Miniature desserts are always fun, especially when you are entertaining because a bite-sized treat is so much easier to handle than something that needs to be sliced and served on a plate with a fork. Mini cupcakes are always an option, but a cakelet pan can turn what would be an ordinary mini cupcake into a work of art. Nordic Ware’s Bronze Fall Cakelet Pan will give your mini cakes a beautiful look that is perfect for fall entertaining. The pan bakes 16 cakelets in each of four different designs. The designs include an acorn, a pumpkin, a turkey and a leaf. Each one is extremely detailed, right down to the veins on the pumpkin leaf and the wattle on the turkey, which means that your freshly-baked cakes will come out with an impressively detailed look!
The pan is made from heavy duty cast aluminum and has a bronze finish, giving it a color that will almost make you want to leave it out on display when you’re not baking with it! The designs are detailed, but the details are bold enough that they will have good definition even on a tiny cake. The pan has a nonstick finish, but with designs like these I always recommend greasing and lightly flouring your pan before adding the batter to ensure that you get a clean release every time. You can bake any kind of recipe you like in the pan – fall flavors like spice cake, gingerbread and pumpkin are natural choices – and you won’t need to frost the finished cakes because they’ll be ready to serve as soon as they cool.
