Also, this pan is just about the right size and shape for creating homemade Twinkies™ -- so you could call it a Twinkies™ pan. It's not exactly the same shape and size as Hostess Twinkies™ but it's close, though. As you can see in the photos, our pan is a bit more of a boat shape, whereas a Twinkie is more plainly oblong. Needless to say, the makers of Hostess Twinkies™ have nothing to do with selling this pan here. No doubt they would prefer that you buy their ready made product at your local grocery store, which would be easier. However if you'd like to try your hand at making your own, using this pan will allow you to create something that looks kind of like the original. Use a cake mix and a filling, whatever you like ... be creative.
