I read somewhere, now I can't find the post, that you can use the kitchen aid mixing bowl to bake a cake in. I was wondering more about it cause I was going to do a barbie cake and didn't want to go out and buy an extra pan. and what time and temp do you bake it for?
Sorry, I don't know the answer to this, but I would think you would need some kind of heating core to make it all cook evenly.
Yes it certainly can be done.
For a 'core' you can make a foil straw....roll up some aluminim foil tightly into a thin straw. Insert it into the batter just after you put the cake in the oven.
OR: use 2 flower nails....one on the bottom w/the nail sticking up and one on top w/the nail down into the batter. The bottom one might more around on you when you pour in the batter so go gently.
