Purchased for a football themed cake for a 9 year old birthday boy. We made the Yellow Cream Cake recipe that came with the pan - it is delicious!
NOTE: The Nordic Ware Yellow Cream Cake recipe is for a 10 cup pan. This is a 9 cup pan! SOLUTION: Fill 6 cupcake tins 2/3 full of the batter, then pour the remaining batter in the pan. Worked perfectly for me with maybe 1/2 inch of pop-over that didn't even need to be trimmed off. Spray the pan evenly with a cooking spray for baking (with flour in it - Baker's Joy or Pam with Flour) - it will pop out perfectly every time.
Easy to decorate in so many ways! We made footballs from slightly warmed Tootsie Rolls, "grass" out of green decorating sugar, goal posts from pretzle sticks, "people in the stands" out of dots of frosting. The birthday boy LOVED it! You could easily make this into a soccer stadium, football stadium, hockey rink, rock concert... just use your imagination! It's a nice heavy pan, cooks evenly, worth every penny! Kids end of season sports parties, Stanley cup party, Superbowl party, World Cup party...you'll get a lot of use out of it!
