What Is It
Love baking or cooking? Love watching cooking shows such as Cake Boss? Well, the new line of pans from Cake Boss has you covered! Mostly designed to appeal to those who love to bake and love making treats, the bakeware accessories will help (even beginners!) make delicious and cute treats.

Sold in various stores but available, in full, from Michaels, the Cake Boss line includes amazing things like the Flower Cakelette Pan, Decorating Tips Sets, Decorating Letter and Alphabet Fondant Stamps, Acrylic Fondant Rolling Pin, Fondant Smoother, and more! Basically, if you were trying to make a delicious and well-decorated cake, the items from the Cake Boss line would be affordable and perfect! (Which is why this could make an awesome gift if you purchased a couple of the Cake Boss items as a present to an aspiring baker).

For my review, I received the Cake Boss 6-Cup Nonstick Flower Cakelette Pan, the Cake Boss Silicone Spoonula, and the Cake Boss Deluxe Nonstick 10-Inch by 15-Inch Cookie Pan. The Flower Cakelette pan allows you to make adorable, easy-made mini cakes that will be a blast (and great practice) for decorating. The Spoonula helps you make your batter mix with ease, and the Bakeware Cookie Pan has little markings on the base of the pan to allow you to get the best, perfectly-sized cookies every time.

My Opinion
The Cake Boss Silicone Spoonula works wonderfully. The silicone portion is curved just right to make sure I can get all of the batter off the sides of the bowl, and I find myself reaching for the Cake Boss Silicone Spoonula more often than any of my other silicone spatulas. The little wording on the silicone is really cute, and afterwards, it’s really simple to wash off the Cake Boss Silicone Spoonula so it’s ready for another use. They did a great job with this one, and it’s well-designed and seems like it’s going to last for quite a few uses.

I’ll have to admit to being extremely impressed by the Cake Boss Deluxe Nonstick 10-Inch by 15-Inch Cookie Pan. When it says “non-stick”, it MEANS non-stick. I’ve baked a couple of batches of cookies on these, and not ONCE did anything stick. Not any part of a cookie or anything. Everything slide off wonderfully – even the chocolate chips! When I was done making my cookies, it honestly looked like I had never even used the pan – that’s how impressive it was. Nothing stuck at all, so when they say “non-stick”, they really aren’t kidding. The Cake Boss Deluxe Nonstick 10-Inch by 15-Inch Cookie Pan is fully non-stick, and it does it wonderfully.

Aside from the non-stick surface, the pan also has those little helpful circles that help me figure out exactly how much dough should go per cookie. While I forgot to take “after” pictures (ugh! Stupid me!), the amount of the little inner circles was perfect. The cookies grew almost perfectly to fill out the outer circles, and each cookie was large enough to enjoy without being so large it cooked unevenly. The little circles are a LIFE-saver when it comes to really getting the right-size cookie so it will cook perfectly. Those little circles don’t really bother any other types of food, either, so if you wanted to cook some chicken strips on here, you can just ignore the circles, and it won’t hurt your food. As a note, the circles don’t leave any marks when the cookies are baked, either.
