A cake with a message

The Birthday Cake Mold makes it easy to bake up a cake that says, "Happy Birthday," without even frosting it.

The Birthday Cake Mold Perpetual Kid

Baking a birthday cake from scratch can require a little extra effort. Most people want to add a message, such as "Happy Birthday," to a cake commemorating a special event and that can mean frosting the whole cake to provide a base for the message you write out in icing. With the Birthday Cake Mold, however, you can eliminate the frosting step. The mold makes it possible to inscribe "Happy Birthday" on a baked treat by doing nothing more than pouring the batter into the mold and sticking it into the oven. Of course, you can make the cake a bit fancier by adding in a little of that frosting, but that is entirely up to you.

The Birthday Cake Mold is made from food grade silicon, allowing you to use it just like any other silicon cake pan. It is even microwave safe, in case you come up with another idea for using the mold that isn't so oven-friendly. It's also dishwasher safe, making clean up a breeze. The mold measures 9 inches in diameter. And, just in case you can't find your favorite cake recipe, the Birthday Cake Mold comes with a recipe embossed on its rim. It's priced at $31.99.
