I KonMari-ed the Sh*t Out of My Kitchen and Here's What Happened

Octopus Cake Pan: Love It Or Hate It?

I'm still not sure what I think about the whole cutesy cake pan trend, but I think it's pretty safe to say that it's here to stay. This time whimsical fun is presented in the shape of an octopus. The octopus cake pan is made from heat-responsive cast-aluminum by NordicWare (who is probably the undisputed champ of whimsical cake pans) and is exclusively available at Williams-Sonoma for $38. Now I think this would be a great cake for a child's birthday party (or perhaps a marine-biologist), however I have a problem pony-ing up $40 for something I might use once or twice. What do you guys think? Octopus Cake Pan, love it or hate it?

I could never make it look as good as that picture, but for a themed party it would be fantastic. And fun to try!

It's great for my scuba diving relatives. It would be cool to decorate in different designs and colors. $40 is high, but it's probably better quality than the Wilton pans.Are shaped pans a trend? I didn't know they ever went away.

It's so cute but I have such a hard time just frosting normal cakes...I don't think I have the patience to decorate the thing every single time!

Its really cute, but the batter would cok so unevenly. All the humps and ridges would be so dry by the time the base started finishing.

It's great if you're a professional cake decorator. I'm not, so that's a no go.Besides, didn't we go through the cute cake tin phase in the 80s already?

It's cute but not very practical. The only "shaped pan" I have is an animal crackers pan by Wilton - they give you a bunch of different ideas to make different animals from it (a reindeer, panda, cat, etc.).
