I have saved a glass soda bottle for many years for one purpose, but any long neck glass bottle will work. I use it when I bake an Angel Food Cake.
When you take the Angel Food Cake from the oven, the instructions will tell you to turn the cake upside down to cool before removing from the pan. I just insert the neck of the bottle into the hole in the center of the pan, and invert it onto the stove or counter and leave it for about an hour to cool. Then carefully loosen the cake at the top edges and remove it to a serving plate.

That is so strange looking. It would be my luck though that the cake would just fall out on the counter while up-side-down!
It's written on the back of the box of Betty Crocker angel food cake mix.

My Grandmother and my mom did this exact same cooling on a bottle...Special to see again..
