Or do I have to use a tube pan? I make pound cakes all the time but I have always used my tube pan. Now I have a customer that wants Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Icing for a birthday cake. So I am wondering if I can bake in something like my 8" or 10" rounds? Help!

I can't say that I've done this exact thing, but I often make recipes in different pan sizes or different pan types than the recipe calls for. I would probably use a heating core (or the flower nails, if you prefer) if I was going to do a pound cake recipe in a regular pan even if it is only 8". You may have to lower oven temp if it looks like the edges are getting over done.

Yes, you can bake a pound cake in a regular pan, but DEFINITELY use a heating core.

I bake pound cakes in every shape and size. I second the heating core or flower nail.

I agree with the other posters, I make pound cakes in all shapes and sizes. My recipe is fie without a heating core or flower nail.

Ditto Michellenj. Pound cake can be baked in any shape. No heating core or flower nail for me.
