4.0 out of 5 stars pan is great - decorating set, not so much, May 8, 2009
This review is from: Norpro 3964 Cream Canoe Pan With Bonus 9 Piece Decorating Set (Kitchen)
The pan is great. Many ideas for recipes came with the pan, but only one actual recipe for a cake and 2 recipes for fillings were included. I got my recipes online. All the recipes i found made 16 cakes - which is two batches. If you're going to make these all the time and want the 16 cakes to be uniformly perfect, you need to buy two pans. The "twinkies" are made with a sponge cake batter. My first batch turned out perfectly. But, since I had to wait for the first batch to cook (20ish minutes) before I could make the second batch, the leavening agents went to work before the second batch even got into the pan. The second batch was still good (my husband and 6-year old son didn't mind one bit) but they were certainly not perfect like the first batch.

DO NOT buy this set for the decorating kit. The long injector tip is useful for filling the cakes, but the whole decorating set it made of low grade plastic that I worried about breaking with each use. The tip end of the syringe reservoir is conical, but the plunger is flat so you can not get the last 2 Tbs of filling out. I crumpled up plastic wrap and put it in the tube to force out as much filling as possible. It worked reasonably well, but was messy when I was finished!
