Igloo Cake Pan

Igloo Cake Pan

If you’re looking for a seasonal cake pan that isn’t directly attached to a particular holiday, NordicWare’s brand new Igloo Cake Pan could be perfect. The heavy duty aluminum pan has a great amount of detail worked into it that makes the finished cake really look as though it has been pieced together with blocks (albeit blocks of cake, not blocks of ice!). The pan has a nonstick interior to help the cake slide out without damaging the design, but the fact that the detailing on the pan is fairly shallow makes it easy to remove in general. There is a raised, circular base built into the outside of the pan, on top of the igloo’s dome, that keeps the otherwise round pan sable while you’re filling it with batter.

The cake pan is a Williams-Sonoma exclusive. I was fortunate enough to stop by a store over the weekend where they were demoing the cake and it looked just as nice in person as it does in the promo pictures. A dusting of powdered sugar “snow” is all you need to finish this off for any holiday party.

    will the batter bake well that deep? what kind of batter would be best? light, heavy, thin or thick batter?

    I have this pan. I microwave white canned frosting for a few seconds, stir, and pour slowly over the top. It makes a nice, easy, white coating that still shows the detail of the cake.

    What do you think about a confectioners sugar icing glaze? I got this igloo cake pan for Christmas. It came with a recipe, but I wonder if anyone has other recipes that would work. It’s shaped like a bowl – not a Bundt pan – so it is quite deep and needs to cook all the way to the center.

    Does anyone still have the recipe that came with the cake? I have not been able to find one that bakes all the way through the center!!! Help!!!!

What do you think?
