Letting it hang for long enough was my issue. I rushed, it fell. The only problem I had was top heavy issues. You need to add water, salt, or sand to the wine bottle (don't use a bottle that you haven't consumed the wine ~ the heat would ruin the wine) to get a weight balance to cool the cake. At least that's my experience. Just make sure it hangs long enough to set.

Oh, and if it tips, expect lopsidedness.

mmmm....it was so long ago (and it was a mix) but I think I may have added the water to my bottle.

Well, the prince of angel food cake topped with chocolate frosting turned his nose up at the creamy topped angel food cake. However after one "polite" stare from me. He tried it and........................... He thought it was great!


Thanks to Alix the topping is awesome! I used 1/2 raseberry yougurt and 1/2 lemon Yummy!

We had a good laugh too. I could only find the outsides to my angel food pans. So since the box said not to use a bunt pan it might over flow and to me that means just don't fill it so full. I had to put the extra batter in bread tubes. Yep Star Shaped Angel Food Logs
So I sliced it up and spread with topping.

My cake in the Bunt is "Hanging out" as we speak. I have it on an adjustable measuring cup. I think as long as you have something that will hold the pan up by the center then your fine

Now I want angel food cake with mom's "recipe". I even have an excuse....I have to pack only essential items so I have to test my angel food cake pan to see if it's working before I pack it. I think I'll make it and halve it and do half chocolate and half the suggested creamy flavors.

Angel food cake isn't supposed to be done in a bunt pan. It's supposed to be done in the special angel food cake pan, the one where the external piece and internal piece are separate. The issue is it has to hang upside down to cool and you can't do that in a loaf pan or cupcake tin. If you don't hang it to cool and allow it to cool completely, it will go flat.

Rhetorical, right?

Sorry, don't mean to hijack but what do you mean an angel food cake pan has two pieces? My two pans are admittedly really really old, but only one piece each. Can you explain the two piece thingy?
