Diane, I actually have one of those pans. Mine is probably 40 or 50 iyears old. I mostly use my fluted Nordicware bundt pan.

I have not personally seen one of these cake pans in years, but the old bunt pans were not fluted on the sides and the bottom and center cone came out like a cheesecake pan (without the cone). That is why the sides were smooth. It made it very easy to remove the cake from the pan. My mom had one years ago and it made a great cake. A bunt pan would do the same, just make a different look. I guess you may still be able to buy the old type pan.

What kin d of round cake tin? If you mean, an angel food tube pan, then yes that or a bundt pan is what you should use.

If you are talking about a regular cake tin, then no, I would not advise it. You need the tube or bundt pan configuration to ensure that cake gets done all the way through.

If you don't have a tube pan, you can almost always find used ones at Goodwill, Salvation Army or other thrift stores for a fraction of what they cost in the retail stores. Or if you have a Dollar Store near you, they sometimes have the disposable foil tube pans.

Good luck. Have a wonderful weekend. Love and hugs.
