I just received an email from Williams-Sonoma promoting their new cupcake pan. I stared at it for a second and almost declared the email incontrovertibly mistaken. "This isn't new. I've made a giant cupcake cake before. The proof is in an old blog post! I own this old pan." But then I looked closer at the photo and sure enough, the shape of the frosting is much peakier. Troubled, I looked into a bunch of cupcake pans online to see what all is out there for the world to choose from now. Why wasn't I faced with these choices when I got mine? Whatever, I'm perfectly happy with my Wilton one.
But just to show you, here are a few of the cupcake pans you now have to choose from...
