I'm wondering what pan to use to make a potted cactus cake? I don't have the Wilton ball pan; can I use a round bowl to bake in?

Also, what would I use for the spikes on the cactus? In the pictures I've seen they almost look like broken spaghetti, but any other suggestions would be considered! Thanks for the help!

You can bake in a pyrex bowl. I've done it before. I usual bake at 325 degrees which takes longer but it always turns out perfect.

1,000s of piped Royal Icing lines instead of speg icon_smile.gif They will be very delicate and you will break at least 1/2 of them icon_sad.gif You apply them to the cake w/tweezers.
