Now that we’ve all been pandemic baking at home for quite a while, it’s time to put away those old cupcake and muffin tins and try something new. If you’re looking to upgrade the way your dessert treats look, we’ve found just the product for you!

The Chicago Metallic Multi Tier Cake Pan is just what you need to make fancy layered cakes that happen to be tiny. The pan features four cavities to place your batter in. Each cavity is molded into a three-tier shape that is 4 inches wide at the base with a top tier that’s 2 inches around. Each finished cake will stand about 5 inches tall.

This cute and sturdy square pan costs $26.81 at Amazon, and is available for Prime delivery with free shipping.


The pan is made from aluminized steel and features a non-stick coating. It’s also dishwasher-safe, but the manufacturer recommends hand-washing to help it last longer.

This multi-tiered wonder currently has an average grade of 4.6/5 stars on Amazon, with 350 reviews so far. Reviewers on the product page say it’s a nice pan that makes beautiful mini cakes and the non-stick coating works well. Just don’t expect recipes to come with the packaging, as listed in the instructions.

So, after you find your own recipes, bake them and decorate, you’ll definitely be able to pull off some impressive, hand-held creations.


Clearly, this cool pan works for all kinds of occasions, from graduations and anniversaries to birthdays, but I think surviving another day of the pandemic is as much a reason for cake as any.

Looking for recipes to go with your new molded baking toy? We’ve got you covered. Try some traditional flavors, such as chocolate (you can always add a touch of alcohol to jazz it up if you like) or strawberry. Or, get more distinctive, just like your cake pan, and try a pickle-flavored cupcake. (We know, it sounds weird — but pickle flavors would be perfect for a baby shower!) Of course, you can always use a boxed mix — no judgment here!

Whatever flavors you use, you’re surely going to end up with an Instagram-worthy tiny cake. Don’t tell anyone you’re not a professional!
