I am thinking of getting a heart shaped pan. Rose in her book recommended Wilton. Should I get regular pan or the springform one? Anyone has any suggestion?

I have the Elegant Heart pan by Nordic Ware. This is what it looks like:

Heart shaped pans are useful all year round. I used it for our anniversary.  There are a lot of choices out there. Let us know what you decide.
Are you baking a special recipe?  Special event?

Thanks for your reply! I want to bake the Double Chocolate Valentine that’s in Rose’s Heavenly Cakes, but also want a pan that’s versatile and can be used for other recipes. Your pan is beautiful. I already have a bundt pan (the fleur de lis one) and I don’t make a lot of bundt cake, so probably won’t get one of those.

Let us know what pan you get.  I am always interested in new pans.
I do use my heart pan for bread / muffin type things too.  I agree I don’t bundt a lot but I love the shaped pans.

This may be late but I have the Wilton heart shaped pans… I love it for cakes and do use it year-round.

I have the wilton one, and I think it works fine, plus it is inexpensive.  I don’t know how well the spring form would work, but I suppose it could potentially be more versatile.  I don’t use spring form pans anymore (switched to removable bottom pans), and I never liked them when I did, so I’m probably a little biased smile

I don’t know if I have ever seen a heart shaped springform pan.
