This classic piece of bakeware is far from a one-trick pony. Here are five more ways to put your Bundt pan to work (and they don’t involve cake).

Beyond cakes and loafs, the bundt pan is the magical tool that let’s you reimagine a classic phyllo tart or pie. And the result is downright impressive! Rather than a flat or layered tart, flaky phyllo lines the pan and wraps around the filling that gets stuffed inside.

5. Punch Bowl Ice Ring

Ready to impress this holiday season? Forget the cake — your Bundt pan is the key to making the prettiest ice ring for a holiday punch. Fill it with fresh fruit like cranberries, sliced pineapple, or sliced citrus, or even whole spices like cinnamon sticks and star anise for a pop of color and a hint of flavor. Large ice rings can stand the test of time in a punch bowl, and won’t melt nearly as quickly as regular cubes.
