Check out your bowls and see if any are oven proof. Pyrex bowls usually are and I have done a dome with it. Otherthan that I am not sure. Good luck.

You can use something called a pudding bowl. It's oven proof and dome shaped.

I use my mixing bowl and build the frosting to make the bottom curved.

I have some pyrex bowls, maybe I'll try those. Any idea about cooking times/temps when using one?

Not sure about temps or times, been along time. You may have to just watch it and check on doneness. I would bake at 325.

I've used my pyrex and baked around 325 to 335. Turned out just great! Make sure to spray the bowl before putting the batter in.

I did it! Tried a practice run last night in a pyrex bowl, baked at 325, took just over an hour but it worked and came out of the bowl no problem.

Thanks for all the advice!
