Can anyone give me any tips on baking a cake in a bowl?? I want to do the frog cake from Debbie Brown's book and I'm wondering if the cake will get done in the middle. Help please icon_redface.gif Thanks!

I've baked in a glass bowl before. I didn't have any problems.

It depends on the size of the bowl. I've baked in an 8" top-diameter bowl (the Fall Flower Basket cake in my gallery), an it was fine. The cake as about 4" tall when done, which was perfect.

Just bake at a lower temperature, like 325, to keep it from getting done too fast around the edges. If it's a large bowl, you should probably use a heating core. A flower nail would probably not be long enough.

I agree, a lower temp and a flower nail should do the trick

Just cooked two litre bowl cakes (super mario) and they came out perfect the sides where a little darker then normal, but once trimmed the cakes were perfectly cooked all the way through.

Thanks everyone, the frog uses a 10 cup and a 2 1/2 cup bowl so hopefully they will be ok. I think I'll do a trial run before my sister's birthday just to make sure. I'm still new to most things cake and second guess myself alot icon_confused.gif
