Eat bugs

Bridesmaids, Favors & Gifts, Food & Drink

Courtesy of Crate & Barrel

I am a self-proclaimed bad cook so I am always looking for foolproof ways to make fabulous food with minimal effort and margin for error. I found one answer in the Crate & Barrel catalog that I got in the mail yesterday. This backyard bugs pan was probably designed for a children's party in mind, but assembled with style (think color coordinated icing and a gourmet cake mix) these cake critters would make an adorable dessert or favor for a backyard bridal shower. They're also a great substitute for once-off-beat-and-now-overplayed cupcakes. $35, —Cari Wolfert
