Shaped bundt pans allow the novice baker to look like a pro. However, you do need to remember a few tricks so that your cakes turn out perfectly. This means properly greasing the pan, using the right recipe, and the right amount of batter.

An aluminum bundt pan should be properly greased with butter and then dusted with flour before filling with batter. When greasing a shaped pan, you want to make sure to get every nook and cranny so that your cake releases from the pan without issue. To do this, use softened butter and grease the pan by hand. Using your fingers will allow you to get into all the tight spots. Once buttered, dust with flour (or cocoa powder, if you're baking a chocolate cake).

Most pans will come with a basic recipe. It's important to master this recipe before attempting more complicated ones. The reason being is that these recipes are designed to work perfectly with your new pan. This means you'll get perfect results and amazing looking cakes.

Lastly, you want to pay close attention to the amount of batter the pan can hold. Along with the recipe sheet, many pans also include information on how many cups of batter the pan will hold or what size cake mix to use. Using the proper amount of batter ensures your cake is perfectly baked each and every time.
