Tovolo Twin Pop Molds

Tovolo Twin Pops

The jingle of the ice cream truck would bring me and all of my friends running when we were kids playing in the park after school. They always had something new and exciting that looked good, and some kids would go for that. I liked the new and exciting things, too, but often stuck with a few treats that were my favorites and twin pops ... Read More »

Small Talk Cake Server Set

Small Talk Cake Server Set

To serve a cake, you really only need a knife to cut the cake and a spatula to transfer the slice to the plate. Any knife and spatula will do, although you will get better slices when you use better equipment. For instance, a butter knife isn’t going to give you the neatest slice of a layer cake even though it will get the job ... Read More »

Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs Cakelet Pan

Snow White Cakelet Pan

Snow White is a classic children’s story and the original Disney movie is a favorite across generations. I have a feeling that the new Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs Cakelet Pan from Nordic Ware is likely to become a favorite with many people, too.

Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Presses

Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Presses

An ice cream sandwich is a delightful hot weather treat, and they’re even more enjoyable when you can put together your own.

Nordicware Summer Series 3D Cookie Cutters

Summer 3D Cookies

Cookies are associated more strongly with fall and winter – thanks to the Christmas holiday where cookies are an absolute staple – than they are with summertime. This is a shame because the summer can be a fine time to bake cookies. The days are longer, so we usually feel like we have a little extra free time and, if you have kids around, you ... Read More »

Frieling Layer Cake Slicing Kit

Frieling Cake Slicer

The hardest thing about making a layer cake is getting evenly sliced layers. It never seems like it will be that difficult to level the rounded top off of a single layer or cake, or to cut a taller cake into two even pieces, but even pros end up with uneven layers sometimes. The trick to getting even layers is to have a very large ... Read More »

Oxo Flexible Nylon Pie Server

Oxo Flexible Pie Server

Pie servers are triangular spatulas that are supposed to make it easy to lift a slice of pie easily from a pie plate by offering more support than simply trying to balance a heavy slice of pie on the blade of a thin knife. Most pie servers are made of metal and are fairly stiff, but when it comes to pie servers, stiffness is not ... Read More »
