I don't think there's ever been a cake recipe placed in front of me that I've declined. I love cake. And I enjoy the act of making and baking a cake. The one thing I don't love in the cake making process is frosting it. Sure, frosting is delicious, but tinting frosting, adding to a piping bag, and the act of piping are all steps I'd rather skip. That's one reason I find Bundt pans to be such a great baking tool. They give cakes a beautiful decorated appearance with no work at all. I can simply drizzle with chocolate, ganache, a powdered sugar icing, or sprinkle with berries and a dusting of powdered sugar, and it looks like a masterpiece. Each of the pans here will give you that same result and surely inspire some weekend baking.

Nordic Ware Bundt pans are always standouts and this Jubilee pan is a perfect example. It comes with a lifetime warranty, which could come in handy as you'll be baking with this Bundt pan all the time. The geometric design is eye-catching and glaze-catching for your drizzle of choice. And the nonstick finish keeps your cake from getting stuck to all the inner ridges. This specific pan holds 10 cups of batter. Note that bundt cake recipes often call for a pan based on how much batter it can hold. For the prettiest results, any Bundt pan you use should be filled about two-thirds full before going into the oven.

Even more fun than eating a piece of cake is eating a whole cake! With a mini Bundt pan (aka bundtlette pan) you can serve each person at the table their own personal cake. The pan's gold color feels special so even while you're making the mini cakes the experience feels elevated. The pan has a 4½ cup capacity for batter. You can find this pan at a few retailers. I'm linking to the Bundt cake pan at Walmart, but you can also add it to your next Amazon order where the pan has almost 900 five-star reviews.

This Nordic Ware Bundt pan has the capacity for 10 cups of batter.
