vintage rolling pin

Baking pans have “progressed” from heavy cast iron to aluminum, to silicone, and to cast iron again. We use them for baking everything from birthday cakes to three-tiered wedding cakes to cornbread in corncob shapes. Cookie molds and cutters, cake pans and muffin tins have all been made in every imaginable shape, even Star Wars figures.

Rolling pins have also moved from stone and marble to wood and plastic, for those who still use them.
