Flexible Cake Pan?

I have been wanting to try the flexible bakeware. Today I found this pan for 75% off (cost me $3.74 ), so I decided to get it and give it a try. I envisioned making a cake in it.

Now that I get it home and start thinking about it, I'm not sure it is for a cake. I'm thinking now it's for gelatin or something else. I don't know. It has a decorative pattern in the bottom of the pan so that when the cake/whatever is flipped out, there should be decor on top. But then won't icing cover that all up? Do you put something into the decorative indentations before filling it with cake mix, or is it just not a cake pan at all?????

As you can clearly see, I am NOT a baker .

Not all cakes need icing. You can use a good chocolate cake mix and sprinkle powdered sugar on it instead of frosting it. You can also do a drizzle type/glaze frosting like you would a bundt cake.

I don't know the brand. It was one of those clearance items that had the cardboard band with all the info ripped off.

Looks like a cake or flan pan to me.
