Which Way Does The Bottom Of A Springform Pan Go?

Springform pans are made of two different sections. The outer part is circular and releases when you unhook it from the bottom part.

The circular part is the form. When you are done, it unclips to release tension, or clips to hold it in place. The bottom of springform pans usually has dimples and a lip around the edge. You can bake your cake either way but professionals recommend that you bake it with the concave side of the pan down (dimple side up). This will make removing your cake easier because there will be less lip to get in your way when using a cake server.
