Swirl Cake Tin

How cool is this?!?

What a wicked looking cake!

Classical Swirling Shape Cake Tin  Nordicware Heritage

It probably comes from a classic swirl cake tin by Nordicware. Nordicware based the design on an old German stoneware mould for baking a ring-shaped Gugelhupf, similar to the American coffee cake. Nordicware ‘swirl’ tins are made of durable cast aluminium, and feature a centre tube that ensures even baking and the non-stick coating should provide easy release and cleanup (but I’d still use some sort of cake release just in case).
