The Barbie Pan...

One of the questions I often hear from students is what pans would give them more than one design possibility. Well, the barbie pan is one of those. Apart from beautiful dollies, you can make mountains, volcanos, islands...

And more...

Even a watermelon...

Have fun with it...!
