Looking at this cupcake pan, I can’t help but think of the board game Battleship, where a bunch of boats are packed together in a rather haphazard way, waiting to be blown up by your opponent.Â I’ve played a version of the game with cars instead of boats, which is why the car lineup here looks so familiar to me. Memories of board games aside, the Classic Cars Sweet Rides Cupcake Pan is a very sweet pan all on its own. The heavy cast aluminium pan is made by NordicWare and bakes eight slightly-larger-than-cupcake-sized miniature cakes, each in the approximate shape of a classic car.There isn’t much detail on the cars, so you’re probably not going to be able to pick out any specific models just by looking at them, but their lines definitely evoke the silhouettes of cars from the 1940s.
The pan is nonstick and releases the car shapes fairly easily after being well-greased. Pay special attention to the windshield areas of the cars, since that portion is slightly more likely to get stuck inside the pan when you go to turn out the cakes.You can then use icing to bring the cars to life, giving them custom “paint” jobs and accessories before giving in and eating them.
