Orka 4-Ice Pops

Popsicles are even easier to make than ice cream because you don’t need an ice cream maker or any other special appliance to make them. What you do need, however is a mold to shape them with. The simplest way to make a popsicle is to use a small paper cup or yogurt container, fill it with juice (or whatever else you choose to use ... Read More »

Bug Pancake Pan

Bug Mini Pancake Pan

I was out shopping the other day when I came across Nordicware’s new Bug Pancake Pan. The pan was so cute, I almost couldn’t resist taking one home with me. The havy duty pan is nonstick and has silver dollar sized depressions for pancakes in each of seven designs: the dragonfly, snail, butterfly, ladybug, spider, bee, worm and beetle. The bugs are adorable and much ... Read More »

Cupcake Pan Necklace

I am a big fan of Amyville‘s sweet cupcake necklaces (I have a vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting one) and all of their foodie earrings, but just as with regular sweets, sometimes it’s nice to have some variety and take a look at some of the other options out there. I recently came across a Cupcake Pan Necklace that would be a perfect gift for ... Read More »

Large Flexible Mixing Bowl

Large Flexible Mixing Bowl

Mixing bowls, even those that are designed with little spouts on the sides, are not really made for pouring. Liquids tend to overrun the tiny spout when pouring, and dry ingredients also need a lot more direction than the design can offer. For liquids and batters, a measuring cup with a more defined spout tends to be the best option. For dry ingredients, I find ... Read More »

Gaggenau Lift Oven

Gaggenau Lift Oven

Every time you open the oven door, some heat escapes. This is one of the many reasons that baking times can vary from person-to-person for the same recipe, as there is no telling from a writer’s standpoint how long a person will leave his or her oven door open while trying to fit in cake pans and baking sheets. Kitchen manufacturer Gaggenau has come up ... Read More »

Topsy Turvy Cake Pan

Topsy Turvy Cake Pan

Whimsical cakes, with their irregularly shaped, tilting layers and brightly colored frosting, are just as popular as they ever were, even though they are far more common than they were just a few short years ago. At least, they’re now as common in the shops of professional cake decorators as they are at the Mad Hatter’s tea party table. The cakes are made by shaping ... Read More »

Snowflake Cake and Mini Cake Pans

Snowflake Cake and Mini Cake Pans

The Igloo Cake pan is probably my favorite new piece of bakeware this season, but Wilton’s Snowflake Cake Pan and Mini Snowflake Cake Pans come in a very close second. The pans have a great amount of detail in them, blowing up a tiny winter symbol to avery visible – not to mention delicious – size. The large pan bakes a deep, single snowflake, while ...

Zoo Pops

Zoo Pops

Summer is officially over, as of a few days ago. Fortunately, a mark on a calendar doesn’t mean that we get an instantaneous change in the seasons, so there is still time to enjoy the rest of the warm weather while it lasts. Ice cream, frozen yogurt and popsicles are all still fair game – although it would have been nice to get a set ... Read More »
