I haven’t done a “Product I ♥” since last April, doesn’t mean my pan collection has been at a standstill! These pretty bug shaped cakes above (next to naked Mad Men cupcakes) were a cinch to make! My awesome friend (and perpetual baking class buddy) Dessert-o-licious gave me the Nordic Ware Backyard Bugs Pan as a very cool birthday present. Look how cute it is!
If you are anything like me, after the cuteness factor wears off, you start to think “those those little ridges aren’t going work…” but it was quite the opposite! Those cute as a button mini cakes pictured came out perfectly with just Pam. There’s also a silicone version of this pan available, but I am weary of silicone and this one works very well. Do you have this pan? I haven’t been able to frost them nicely yet, I spared you the frosting carnage picture… That’s a future project!
