Tiered Cakelet Pan

This cast-aluminum baking pan from Nordic Ware is versatile for any special occasion: use it to whip up a wedding shower treat one day, and a birthday dessert the next. Shaped in the form of petite cakes — one with pearl-beaded trim and the other sandcastle-style — the nonstick pan produces perfect evenly-baked sets cakes, that pop out perfectly when they’re done, ready for decorating.
