Angel Food Loaf Pan

Angel Food Loaf Pan

Several weeks ago, I discussed the question of whether or not you need an angel food cake pan to make angel food cake. The answer is yes because the cakes are delicate and the pan is designed not only to let them rise to their fullest potential and to cool without falling, but to make them easy to remove from the pan. At the time, ... Read More »

Easy Pb&J Jar

Easy Pb&J Jar

Although it’s called the Easy Pb&J Jar, this innovative jar is good for more than just peanut butter and jelly storage. The jar has screw-tops on either end and perfectly straight sides. This completely eliminated the rounded edges usually found at the bottom of “regular” jars and the rim found underneath the top opening, where the jar comes up and narrows, and prevents you from ...

Garden Patch Cakelet Pan

Garden Patch Cakelet Pan

There are some vegetables that any kid – no matter how picky an eater – will happily munch away on. Vegetables made out of cake, for instance, fit this description quite well. This Garden Patch Cakelet Pan is a new piece of bakeware at Williams Sonoma this spring. It bakes 20 miniature cakes, each of which is roughly the size of a mini-muffin, in carrot, ... Read More »

Igloo and snowman pans

shaped winter cakes

Shaped, holiday pans can be tough for a baker to resist, but let’s face it: how many times can you make a Santa-shaped cake? The window of opportunity to use a cake pan like that is very small, even if it does make an ideal cake for a Christmas Eve party. In terms of practicality, it is much more useful to have a pan that will ... Read More »

Halloween cupcake wrappers

Halloween cupcake wrappers

 I don’t necessarily go for lots of seasonal baking tools, changing up the color of my mixing bowls and whatnot to suit the current season or holiday. I probably would if I could, but I would need a much bigger kitchen (with a whole lot more storage space) before I could even consider starting up such a collection. There are, however, a few seasonal baking items ... Read More »

Martha Stewart cupcake boxes

Martha Stewart cupcake boxes

One of the things I like best about buying cookies, cupcakes, donuts or other sweets from a bakery is the box that the food always comes in. It’s not that the (usually pink) cardboard is so fancy or elegant, just that you know immediately upon seeing it that it holds something tasty. It’s also something that an ordinary cake carrier can’t quite compete with. Restaurant ... Read More »

Individual Pie Slice Pan

slice pan

Baking desserts in single-serving portions is nothing new. Cupcake pans, ramekins, tartlet dishes and other miniature pans, for instance, all produce small desserts. The new Individual Pie Slice Pan  from Baker’s Catalogue does, too. The idea behind the pan is twofold. First, the pan makes it easy for those people/families who don’t need a whole pie at a time to enjoy a slice at a time without ... Read More »

Brown cupcake wrappers from Martha Stewart

Black and brown cupcake wrappers are surprisingly difficult to find, even though they look fantastic with most cupcake and muffin varieties. Last year there was a bit of a frenzy on the food blogs as bakers tried to find stores that reliably carried them. Home bakers wanted them as a change from the standard white, pastel and silver wrappers carried in most grocery stores. Food ... Read More »
