Williams-Sonoma unveils the Marvel Kitchen Collection

When I saw the Star Wars accessories last year, I was ecstatic. Last week, on their facebook page, Williams-Sonoma posted about superhero cookie decorating classes held at their stores. After a brief moment of sadness for missing such an amazing event, I delved into the Williams-Sonoma website in order to take a look at why they would host superhero decorating classes (okay... why wouldn't they?!) The reason: The Marvel Kitchen Collection! Holy fondant, Batman! These new items look freaking awesome.

The new Marvel line features nine themed items including cookie cutters, cakelet pans, and aprons. Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is featured in his own cupcake decorating kit and comic book cookie cutters. Other favorite fighters for justice include The Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Wolverine. Who hasn't wanted to make their own 3D Wolverine head? I know I have! The Marvel Heroes cupcake decorating kit allows you to adorn your favorite tiny treats with your favorite do-gooder.

The release of this line coincides with the release of Marvel's comic "Spider-Man and The Avengers #1" which is exclusive to Williams-Sonoma. You can pick one up in store or download a digital version from their website. The partnership was formed in order to raise awareness for Share Our Strength, an organization whose aim is to end childhood hunger. The food-centric comic is 12 pages and features Avengers butler Edwin Jarvin teaching a cooking demonstration for kids. When the demonstration is attacked, Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Giant-Man and The Wasp come to the rescue. Writer C.B. Cebulski and artist Todd Nauck are the creators behind this comic.

The comic and Marvel Kitchen Collection are both available at Williams-Sonoma now, both in store and online.
