Who says that cupcakes have to be round? Certainly not Nordic Ware of Minneapolis, Minn. Among its many bakeware products is this whimsical Sweet Rides Classic Car cupcake pan. The cast-aluminum pan features eight distinctive molds of different vehicles. You might be hard-pressed to pick out the make and model of each shape, but if you stare at the pan long enough you could spot a 1955 Chevrolet Nomad wagon, Model T Ford, 1960 Cadillac Eldorado convertible and what appears to be a 1950s-era Dodge or Ford pickup. You’ll have fun trying to figure out the rest, but decorating and eating the cupcakes made using the Classic Car pan is likely the most fun of all. The pan sells for $42.50 from: www.nordicware.com/store.
