We're cake pan crazy

Cakes, Home & Registry

Ok so I know that it might seem like we are cake pan overload this week (check out my post on the mini critter cake pan from Tuesday), but yesterday we came across this giant sandwich cake pan that totally fascinated us, and it got me thinking about what other cool cake ideas are out there.

Before I get into my favorites, let me emphasize that you should not use these to make your own wedding cake. I don't care if your friends call you the Barefoot-freaking-Contessa. The last thing that you need to worry about the night before your wedding is decorative icing. Use these ideas for your engagement party, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or just something to register for so you can use it for future parties:

If you don't have the talent of Duff, but want to honor your favorite football team, use this stadium bundt pan and decorate it in colors to mimic your home team's arena. An easier approach? This football cake pan.

Love Oreo cookies? This sandwich cookie pan from Williams-Sonoma allows you to create a giant-sized cake to honor your favorite cake. The same goes for this giant cupcake pan from Sur la Table.

As an alternative to cupcakes, make these cakesicle pops (pan available at Target) as another way to serve bite-size treats, or have guests break off individual brownies that together are baked to look like an oversize chocolate bar. Tell us your favorites in the comment box below. —Cari Wolfert
