You've Been Eating Dessert All Wrong

How should you be eating cookies, brownies and many other baked goods?

Off a popsicle stick.

No, we're not talking about cake pops, that overdone trend that showed up at every sweet 16 party from 2009 through 2013. We're talking cakesicles, popsicle-shaped goodies that are served on a stick. Look:

The Norpro Nonstick Cakesicle Pan maintains the dessert's integrity, portioning cake into portable servings and solving a few major problems that people encounter with stickless baked goods. Take eating a traditional brownie on the go, for instance. The task is an awkward one. You're walking through a hallway or the office, gracelessly holding a napkin and trying to catch crumbs with the same hand while biting into a piece of chocolate that will inevitably get caught in your teeth, get stuck on your fingers, and crumble on your shirt. You will, undoubtedly, find some remnants in your bra or undershirt hours after you've eaten the thing.

The cakesicle mitigates the downside of dessert in motion, ensuring your eating style is just as exceptional as the food itself.

Plus, it's easy. You can use standard cookie or brownie recipes, or get a little whimsical, adding texture with chocolate candies, nuts or sprinkles. If you're feeling particularly courageous, bake a favorite cake in the pan and merge two servings with icing (see this tutorial if you're intrigued).

The pan is currently on sale for $14.63 on Amazon, but the delight each cakesicle is guaranteed to bring is priceless.
