I would like to know, before I go out and buy another pan (which will only be used so many others!) is it possible to make a doll cake using something else. My mother mentioned that when she took classes that they were taught using a pyrex type bowl. I was wondering if anyone has made a cake this way and has some tips to guide me through it....if not I'll add the pan I have on "hold" to the others icon_cry.gif

Yes. You can use you KA mixer bowl; or graduating sized pans like 6,,7,8,9.

Yes, you can also use a oven safe glass bowl.

You can also use a pyrex measuring cup, I personally got mine from Pampered Chef, it is not pyrex is an eight cup measuring cup. Domed shape. I am sure you could use a pryrex bowl and maybe a round pan that is the same diameter as the pyrex bowl... to make it a little higher...the bride cake in my photos is done with the pampered chef meausring cup/bowl...

The Pampered Chef Batter bowls work well!

Yes! years ago before the wonder mold was even out (or maybe it was but I had never heard it..I wasn't into decorating cakes like I am now ) I used a bundt pan.........I have a 35mm picture of it. I'll have to dig it out and scan it in so you can see.

sure. In fact I just made this one this weekend. I just round pans and stacked and carved.

I've used a brioche pan, just carving a bit to taper the "waist. It works great...there are already made "folds" in the skirt.

If using the pampered chef batter bowl, about how long does it take and at what temp? I want to try this. Thanks

I had the oven at 325 degrees and it took about an hour...just keep an eye on it...I did try the flower nail in it to bake it evenly through the center but it just was not long enough...I should have probably used a larger one...but just grease and flower like a pan. I had to taper the waist a little after it was cool too...if I think of anything else I will let you know. It does not serve very much though...maybe 10.

Thanks, I just wanted to make one for the practice and fun of it. I think they are so pretty!

I intended to carve the Barbieâs skirt out of 12-10-8-6-4â layers, but then after I stacked them, I realized I didnât want to waste that much cake in cutouts, so just ended up with a 5-tier Barbie â just an alternative to consider to the standard bell-shaped doll:

You may also look into the ballerina type cakes, theyâre just plain round cake, with a carved top layer and LOTS of work on the ruffles, smth like this (not mine):

Or buy the pan and then find other ways to use it. Wilton has some good ideas on their web-site.
