Nordic Ware is celebrating their 70th anniversary this year and that means that they are releasing a special edition bundt pan to mark the occasion. The Crown Bundt Pan is a gorgeous gold-tone bundt that is almost too pretty to bake in. The bundt has an unusual pattern with ribbon-like loops around the exterior and straighter ridges going down the center. The pattern is not only designed to look beautiful, but to be extremely functional: the outer loops catch glazes, while the interior ridges direct excess glaze downward and discourage pooling in the center of the cake. Like all bundts, this one is made of heavy duty cast aluminum and has a nonstick interior that will help the design transfer easily to your cakes. Of course, I always recommend prepping your pan just to be on the safe side, but even a few little air bubbles won’t stop a cake that is baked in this pan from being stunning.
