The contouring of the pan outlines the form and provides a generous backing to hold the cake. Crafted of quality aluminum, this bakeware heats evenly and keeps interiors moist while allowing surfaces to gently brown. Lightweight yet durable, it also retains its shape and transfers detailing clearly to the food surface. When the party is over, the pan cleans easily so there's less time spent in the kitchen washing up. The pan holds 6 cups of pound cake or other firm-textured cake batter and comes complete with a baking stand, baking clips, and step-by-step baking and decorating instructions.
