Alix - you won't believe me if I tell you I can...but I can!

The middle tube and the bottom are one piece. They sit inside the outer walls, so to speak, on a little lip. You just pull the tube up and voila - it is removed away from the sides but still on the tube.

I know...you're in shock!

Really??? Only one piece. Mine and my mom's and Chef2337's are all two pieces. That's what she meant by "only find the outsides". See in this one, there's a distinct edge on the bottom of the pan.....The flat bottom and round cone are separate from the outside ring. It makes removing the cake a lot easier.

Great minds think alike.

I do like this pan, but $19 is a bit much just to have a pan that has feet so you don't need the wine bottle. It is cool though.

LMAO!!! Kitchenelf...step AWAY from the baking stuff...slooowly...sheesh! Near disaster that!

OK, thanks for the explanations folks. My angel food cake pans are really old. They are about 50+ actually so I guess they didn't have the two piecers at that point.

I never thought about it long enough to ask that question - I've had that pan forever and those "things" were just there.

Now, you two can leave me alone!

Angel food cake isn't a bundt. My SIL did hers in a bundt pan because she couldn't find her cone. I think you are thinking of pound cake which is a loaf cake. A bundt cake is traditionally a heavy cake where as angel food cake is extremely fluffy and light and needs the special pan to be done correctly.

Bundt ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundt_cake also known as "coffee cake" or "sponge cake"
Angel Food ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_food_cake also know as "foam cake"
Pound cake ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound_cake also know as a "butter cake"
