Take a bite out of crime with Marvel comics cake and cookie molds
Tuesday 16 August 2011
During a blockbuster summer of comic book heroes come to life, little caped crusaders can have their cake and eat it too.
Kitchenware retailer Williams-Sonoma has launched a cakelet pan with molds of silver screen superheroes like Captain America - who hit theaters this summer - Thor, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine and The Incredible Hulk.
The cast aluminum pan turns out individual characters that can then be decorated with colorful icings and sprinkles. Recipes are included.
This summer has resurrected an inordinate number of childhood characters onto the silver screen, with comic book heroes like Captain America, Green Lantern and the Smurfs making their onscreen debut.
The Marvel Cakelet Pan retails for $36 (€25) in the US.
Their Spider-Man cookie cutter set also allows budding comic book writers to create their own cover art in the form of a giant cookie.
The scrapbook kit includes a cache of secret weapons like stamps, icings and sugars to create their own comic book. Stamps include action-packed expressions like WAHOO! CRASH! THWAP! and GO WEB GO!
The cookie cutter set retails for $19.95 (€14).
Amazon.co.uk also sells superhero baking paraphernalia with a Spider-Man cake stand and cupcake stand both by Wilton.
Williams-Sonoma ships to 75 different countries in Asia, South America, and Europe.
