Q: I recently treated myself to a mini bundt cake pan, envisioning a stack of cute little cakes that I could share with friends and co-workers. So far, every recipe I've tried has failed miserably. The cakes stick to the pan despite butter, flour, or cooking spray. Even when the cakes do come out, you can't see any of the fine detail. What do people usually make with this pan?

Editor: Anna, this may seem a silly question, but were there any recipes that came with the pan? If so, we would start there. We have owned several shaped pans, and the recipes that were developed specifically for them always seemed to turn out best. So we would start there, and then move into very dense and rich pound cake types of recipes.
Readers, any specific recipe suggestions for this type of pan?
