I need a round shape for the top of a beehive. Can I use a pyrex bowl-small one.

What would you suggest for time/temp?

Sure, you can use pyrex.

I would bake at 325 F (using bake even strips, if you have them).

For timeline, it would depend on the size of the bowl used....

The following info might be helpful:

Wilton advises that a 6" round (2 cup capacity) should bake for 25-30 minutes at 350.

DH advises that cupcakes take 18-21 minutes...

I have used pyrex dishes before in some of my cakes, and they have come out alright. I placed a circle of greaseproof paper in the bottom (learned the hard way on this one, i read somewhere that you didn't need to and just to grease it well but my cake stuck, so now i do this as a precaution). Grease the sides really well also. I usually bake all my cakes on about gas mark 4 (sorry i don't know what the conversion for this is, but maybe someone else might know). Just be careful taking it out of the oven as it gets really hot.
Hope this helps.
