For anyone following my twitter, you would know that I am a huge comics geek and I’ve also found a recent fondness for baking. In fact all of my bake ware so far has come from Williams-Sonoma. Which is a cooking store that has always embraced geek culture. Currently at the stores and online you can get two series of Star Wars molds for pancakes or cookies. But now comic geeks get a nod too.
Marvel is bringing their superheros into the kitchen. Super Heroes from the Marvel Universe including Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America and Iron Man. Featuring retro character art and graphics it’s like creating a comic book at home. The only disappointing factor is the total lack of any female character. I mean there are enough recognizable female characters in the Marvel Universe to merit at least one.
The bakeware includes products for bakeware and kitchen essentials including Cookie Cutters, Pancake Molds, Adult and Child Aprons, Spatulas and Iced Cookies. I need to see the adult apron. lol
“Building upon our incredibly successful relationship with Williams-Sonoma Inc., we are excited to launch a great new line of merchandise at Williams-Sonoma stores, bringing the Marvel brand to another audience and product segment,” said Paul Gitter, President of Consumer Products for North America, Marvel Entertainment. “We are working with Williams-Sonoma on helping kids and adults spend time together in the kitchen.
Looks like when I get back from BlogHer we’ll be having a Super Hero party at our household!
