Me again!!! I have a question for those of you who have ever made a dome shape by baking in a metal bowl instead of the cake pan. How did you do it??? LOL!!! I have a baby shower coming Jan. 10, and I would love to make the Tummy Cake for it, but I don't have a dome shaped or a wonder mold pan and I thought I saw some of you mention making the shape in a metal bowl. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, and definitely tried. Thanks in advance for any advice.
Just be sure you shaped bowl has no handles, or anything, that cannot be put in the oven.
Then treat it as if it were a cake pan. Coat it (spray or however you normally do) then add batter. If it is very deep, you might want to use a flower nail on the bottom to help the heat to spread thru the cake better.
Just think of it as a cake pan
In addition to what kakeladi said, I turned the pan over that I was using as the base and tried different size metal bowls on it to see what size looked the best. If I hadn't done it that way, I would have made the belly too big.
Here is the link for the one I made. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1267656
I had a lot of fun making it and just had to keep rubbing the belly! The person I made it for hasn't given birth yet, she is about a week overdue and a little cranky!
Thanks for the advice. I will try those ideas. And to kaseynh, I loved your cake, added it to my favorites. Thanks again!!!
