    Psycho, take a "normal" cake pan and see how many cups of water it will hold. Then do the same thing with the special holiday pan. This will give you an idea how much it will hold.

    OMG...I was in the store today because I just bought a new pan last week at the thrft shop and they no longer sell the bunt cake mix. Thank-you for asking this!!!! I will go back tomorrow and pick up a box of regular cake and also search for a recipe on line for a bunt cake.

    Lets start with the Angel Food Cake Pan - It is taller than a reg. cake pan, because Angel Food Cakes get taller. So yes you can bake another cake in the Angel Food Cake pan, but it will NOT get as tall. As for the other cake pan????? Not sure of the size. The boxed cake mix should show you different size pans that it will work in, smaller pan the cake will be taller. Larger pan the cake will be lower, because it is covering more room. Good luck

    I have seen angel food pans used for many things. My one thought is to be VERY sure that the inside of the pan is free of any greasy substance. Even a small amount will keep your next angel food cake from rising well. I always put my pan through the dishwasher. This post made me think about another cake. Does anyone remember the Chiffon Cakes that were so popular when I was a child. My mom made a lot for birthday cakes. They were baked in an angel food pan.

    If either pan is made by Wilton (probably the special shaped pans?) you can go on their website and let it know what pans you have and it will give you cute ideas of what to do with it. Other companies might do the same too, but Wilton is well-known for this. Even their pans from the '80's are on there!

    To make a bundt cake with a regular cake mix add a box of instant pudding mix, 3-4 eggs, 1/2 cup oil and the water. Lemon is the best with a lemon juice/powdered sugar glaze.

    teacherbaily, not a wilton, but wilton does have the ones close to what I got.

    I measured the angelfood cake pans(the four together) 4 1/2 wide 3 deep) I will try the water thing, carolaug, nope was me. and y'know I haven't seen a chiffon cake in quite some time, maybe time to find recipes for it

    the fomspring pan is 9 1/2 x 3, so that looks like our regular one layer cake pan! I got some cake mixes the other day(on sale) so I am going to experiment with these and let y'all know what happens.
