As a child, I always wanted an Easy-Bake Oven to call my own. It was mostly so that I could whip up some secret late-night snacks without mother dearest knowing, but that’s besides the point…
These days, as a semi-adult in the working world, I haven’t really thought much about the miniature kitchen toy, because, um, I own a real oven. That changes today, though, thanks to Shaq and his favorite Easy-Bake Oven recipes. The fun little gadget is back in my life, along with a very harsh reality: It’s rather silly watching legit grown-ups use the Easy-Bake Oven, but it is straight-up absurd seeing a person of Shaq’s size (GIANT) tinker with the oven’s tiny parts trying to make bread pudding and tea cakes.
For what it’s worth, the desserts look edible and the former NBA star is ridiculously entertaining as a dorky chef who sings and dances to “La Bamba” while simultaneously poking fun at his own dreadful free-throw skills. It almost makes me forgive him for not knowing what a pierogi is and for participating in that crazy cookie challenge last month.
