Cupcakes are one of the easiest treats to make, which is why they’re a mainstay at school bake sales. "But how can I make my cupcakes stand out from the bunch?" you ask, like the good 1950s housewife that you truly want to be.
"By cheating," we answer from the 21st century, "with these new cast-aluminum cupcake pans from Williams-Sonoma."
Cupcakes…in the shape of ice cream cones. Two of your favorite diet busters in one. They look awesome, plus the size of the finished treats is perfect for little hands to hold while they lick the frosting off the top. (Be honest: You still like to lick the frosting off too.) You’ll sell out of cupcakes before the other mothers have managed to coax a single soul to buy one of their *yawn* Rice Krispie bars. Take that, June Cleaver Moms. –Julie
