In a year when baking kits are extremely hot — why eat a treat when you could also pass some of the eternity that is 2020 by baking that treat yourself, decorating it, posting it online, and then eating it? — Hostess is finally hopping on board with their very own DIY kit for none other than the iconic Twinkies treat.

For the holiday season, Hostess is launching a bake-your-own party-sized Twinkie kit, complete with cake mix, creme filling mix, and a bake pan. That's right, a party-sized Twinkie.

It's not entirely clear how big of a party they're talking about — the pan is a bit larger than the size of a regular loaf pan, so it might feed about a dozen people, or you know, just one very hungry person.

Hostess did release a Twinkie bake set a few years ago, and you can still find them if you scour the internet, but apparently they weren't a huge hit.

However, this baking kit is a Walmart-exclusive (it costs less than $15) and has the added novelty of being a gigantic version of a beloved treat, which is extremely appealing. It feels like sort of a swerve that a company like Hostess would sell a do-it-yourself kit, since their whole business is selling pre-baked snack treats that require no more effort than ripping open the package, but there is something very appealing about the idea of making your own Twinkie, especially right now.

Plus, think about all the other things you could bake in that cake pan. Once you've got the Twinkie-filling technique down, the sky is the limit. Red velvet Twinkie? Yes. Double chocolate Twinkie? Of course. Carrot cake Twinkie? Incredible.
