I'm wanting to make Debbie Brown's "Baby in a Pram" and her "Playful kitten" cake in her book 50 easy party cakes.

It calls for a 2 liter - 4 pint/10 cup bowl shaped cake.

And 1 liter - 2 pint/5 cup bowl shaped cake.

That would be roughly a 2 quart stainless steel round bowl and a 1 quart for the kitten, correct?

I'm so confused.

Cake pics on her site.

Debbie Brown uses Pyrex bowls for a lot of her cakes. The catch is that the bowl sizes available in the states are different than those in the UK.
The common sizes in the US are 1.5L and 2.5L and in the UK they are 1L and 2L. I have both US and UK Pyrex so I checked and found that the US 1.5L and UK 2L have the same diameter across top of the bowl. The 2.5L is just deeper.

If you use a 1.5L you can still follow the directions regarding the size for the cake board etc., your cake just won't be quite as high.

I use Pampered Chef batter bowls. Close to the right size if I remember

I found some at bed bath and beyond. Walmart had some I got those too.

Hope to be able to work with them later this week.
