Over the past couple of years, I've seen several reconstructions of small treats, remade much larger. I've seen a peanut butter cup the size of a pie and a Twinkie that could serve eight. Williams-Sonoma has made recreating sandwich cookies much easier with the Sandwich-Cookie Cake Pan. The classic cookie is, of course, an Oreo--with the cake pan, you can create a chocolate cake and vanilla cream combo that matches. Just as easily, though, you can combine any other cake and cream flavors to make your own cookie. The cake pans (each set contains two) turn out cakes decorated with the word cookie, along with ridges and decorations. Making a cookie is as simple as laying down one cake, spreading a layer of cream and placing the second cake on top. Considering that many of the other attempts to translate sandwich cookies into cake form involved carving the cake by hand, I think the Sandwich-Cookie Cake Pan is a great idea.
The Sandwich-Cookie Cake Pan is cast aluminum and spreads heat evenly. It has Williams-Sonoma's exclusive Goldtouch coating, which ensures the cake does not stick to the pan and makes clean up simple. The coating is ceramic-reinforced, so you can only wash it by hand. The pan is 9 inches in diameter. The Sandwich-Cookie Cake Pan is priced at $29.95, for the set of two.
