    Love the shape of these and the lemon cake sounds delicious! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bundt pan like that before, thanks for including a link to it.

      I love the shape too. I actually found the mini bundt pans first, which then inspired the post. Chocolate almond cake with a chocolate glaze next.
