Small silver colored rum/torte cake baking mold. The pan resembles an angel food cake pan. It has a pinwheel design that radiates from the middle and expands toward the edges. There is a plain rim that slopes outward around the edges. There is a cone shaped piece of metal jutting through the middle of the pan with a hole at the top that goes completely through. There is a small dent on the side and slight rusting in the bottom.
This was used in Angelo's Bakery in Berwyn, Illinois.
