Simple, classic and undoubtedly impressive the Bundt is the quintessential American cake.

It all began in Minnesota in the early 50s. Local bakeware company Nordic Ware was asked by Jewish immigrant women to produce a cake tin to enable them to bake cakes reminiscent of the European kugelhupf from their homelands. They were known as “bund” cakes, which translates to “association” and referred to the tradition of serving them when you had company. Nordic Ware added a ‘t’ to create their own name for the pan (and in turn the cakes it baked), signifying the beginning of a whole new style of cake.

We're giving you the chance to win one prize pack containing four Nordic Ware Bundt tins and one Baker's Secret Tube Pan, valued at $347.75.
