Is it possible to bake two cakes in this pan and then stick them together to make a round ball? Or would it be too heavy. Has anyone ever tried this and if so, what did you stick it together with?

I have not tried it before, but if you were to try I would use a pound cake and regular cake mixture so it is sturdy.

i would assume it is the same as the 3d egg pan, bake 2 halves and stick them together with whatever filling you want. just don't place the layers side by side, they go on top of each other

I've used it, it works great. You can fill ir or just make a plain round cake. I made a soccer ball. (wilton ball pan)

Maybe it's just me but my cake took FOREVER to bake. I went out and bought a heating core to do it the next time because I have an order coming up for another ball cake.

I have used the Betty Crocker Bake and Fill pan, which is 8 inches in diameter, to make a ball. It was a very heavy chocolate cake and kind of flattened out at the bottom. I think it would have held it's shape better if I had used a lighter cake. You can see it here:

ETA: I used buttercream between the layers and inserted 5 dowels to keep it together. (I had to deliver it 20 miles away over mountain roads.)

Can anyone tell me how many servings there are for the cake ball pan? I have a customer wanting to feed 20-25 and I need to know if I need to put a small cake under this one? TIA
