Take a look at this new cakelet pan from Nordicware and Williams-Sonoma — how cute would these little cakes be at a birthday party or a spring wedding? The pan does all the work for you, too — all the cuteness of multiple layers, and none of the work.
These little pans even bake small indentations where the decorations should go, so it's easy to follow along with a piping bag or sprinkles and finish the look.
We've used other shaped pans like this one, and we love the NordicWare construction. We've never had any problems getting even elaborately-detailed cakes out of the pans intact.
This is a very tempting pan for us; the idea of mini-tiered cakelets is utterly seductive!
