Peeps are one of the most fun candies you can eat around Easter. The fluffy marshmallows manage to have a good mix of sweet and cute that makes the a favorite for people of all ages. There are a few Peep pans out there, but none will make a Peep as impressive as this 3D Peeps Pan. The pan bakes a giant Peep that is easily 10 times the size of a standard Peep chick, which makes for an impressive centerpiece at Easter or a fun birthday cake for a big Peep fan.
The pan has two pieces that snap together to give it a Peep shape. Batter is added to the lower portion of the pan and the top half is snapped in place, so when the batter rises, it will fill up the unfilled half of the Peep pan. The pan bakes on it side, not upright, and it has a metal projection on the top of the Peep’s head that allows it to sit flat and even in the oven. That said, you might want to place it on a baking tray just so it is easier to maneuver in and out of the oven with potholders on. Once it is baked, you can slather it with frosting and a generous layer of colored sanding sugar to give it a really authentic Peep look.
The pan is backordered on the Wilton site right now, but I have also seen it for sale in craft stores like Michael’s and Joanne, so you might be able to pick one up by searching through their baking section or where they keep their Easter goodies.
