Always, always let a bundt cake cool completely before oh so carefully removing it from the pan. If/when your patience (or lack thereof) gets the better of you, cover it in frosting to hide the cracks (as seen here). No one has to know.
To deseed pomegranates without a mess, place a halved and stretched pom into a ziplock bag. Close and smack the peel of the fruit with the back of a wooden spoon, releasing just enough seeds for your desired serving. Store in the fridge.
