I’m looking for a bundt pan because I want to make the whipped cream cake everyone has been talking about.  In RHC, Rose likes Nordic Ware.  I have no experience with bundt pans.  Does anyone know if it is the platinum series she prefers?  Also, which design would be good for that cake?

Thank you grin

I have a Nordic Ware bundt pan. It’s one of the very lightweight painted aluminum ones that you can buy at target and other places. I’ve had very good results with it.

And the whipped cream cake is probably my absolute favorite of all of Rose’s recipes. I think it’s just fabulous.

Missyjean, I believe it’s the Platinum Series that Rose likes. You can use any bundt pan shape for the whipped cream cake.

I have the fleur de lis one and I like it. I covet the Heritage Bundt pan one carried by Williams Sonoma though. It’s also by Nordic Ware.

Target? I didn’t know they carried it. I am in a very rural area but we do have a target within driving distance

Despite WS’s claim that the Heritage Bundt is unique to them and an internet exclusive puirchase.  None of that is true, you can get it at the stores and from others.  You can get it from Wasserstrom for $25.54 plus shipping and it is still less than WS.  I can’t understand why they have to overcharge for everything.

Wow! Thank you for all the information

Do you think cakes made in that pan will be easy to unmold?

The Fleur de Lis is that easy to unmold? Cool! Does it have the black or gray lining?

Gosh, I gotta tell you.  I don’t know what color the lining is, but I’ll try to remember to look tonight!!!  I think it’s gray, though.  I grease it with the Spectrum trans-fat free vegetable shortening and every time—even with chocolate cake—that beautiful “thunk” of a cake falling effortlessly from the pan leaving no crumb behind.  Such a beautiful sound!!!!!

Anne, do you think the Heritage will come out of the pan just as easily as yours? I ask because of all the angles it has. 

Right now, I have no bundt pans.  Will I need the standard one or can I just skip it and go for the Heritage?

The Heritage is 10 cups, so I thnk you can go for it.  I would think the Heritage will release very easily because it’s spaces are so big.  I’d feel totally comfortable with that aspect!  I noticed that in TCB there are several recipes that call for a 6 cup pan, so if you’re splurging, you can find a nice 6 cup pan, too!!!!!

Can’t wait to see the wonderful cakes you bake in it!!!!

Oh, and p.s., the Fleur de lys is definitely silver inside.

I have been doing a little research and am even more confused than before.

On the Bake Deco site, this is what they say about Nordic Ware’s Platinum line v their Commercial line:


Nordicware’s Bundt Pans are the perfect size for baking poundcakes, breads, or frozen desserts. The bundt pan’s cast aluminum ensures superior cooking performance and even baking, and the nonstick coating means effortless removal of baked goods and easy cleanup. As you can see below, we carry two lines of Nordic-Ware bundt pans. The Platinum bundt pan has a heavy duty non-stick coating and will do fine for most people. But if you’re a professional in the foodservice industry, or even just a heavy at-home baker then we recommend the commercial bundt pan, which features a commercial, heavy duty non-stick coating.
