Piece of Cake

For some, the holidays are about indulgence while for others, it’s a tricky balancing act of holiday desserts and a healthy diet. For eager-to-please hosts, German designer Konstantin Slawinski’s S-XL Cake pan is the perfect solution.

Designed in 2007, the cake pan is used to bake batter into 15 pieces of varying widths and heights—satisfying those who want to nibble as well as those who want to nosh. And because the pan is made of silicon—a must-have in modern baking—the edges are less likely to burn and the cake slides easily out of the form.

At 11.8" in diameter and 2.4" tall, the S-XL Cake is just right for slipping under the tree. And the results: perfect for pairing with your copy of Rem Koolhaas’ SMLXL and a cozy fireside recliner.
