Retro Twinkie, Twinkie Sushi, and Twinkie the Kid!

Anyone who knows me knows I love amazingly unique and/or kitschy items. Which is why my super-cool mom brings me incredibly awesome things like…

A Twinkie Baking Set!

Includes everything you need to make your own Twinkies! Twinkie baking pan, Twinkie icing inserter thingy, a recipe book filled with Twinkie-licious cuisine, and even a Twinkie holder shaped like “Twinkie the Kid” (who I can’t bring to take out of the original plastic):

The recipe book is a treasure trove itself. It starts with a brief history of the Twinkie including clips from pop-culture and old ads:

And then come the recipes. What, you might ask, can you make other than Twinkies? You’d be surprised!

How about a Twinkie burrito? Yup:

Or Twinkie sushi:

Chicken-Raspberry Twinkie Salad:

There’s even a recipe for that special day. Yes, there’s a Twinkie wedding cake!

So don’t forget…
