I know this was a topic at one time, but I can't find it.

I want to make a coffee mug cake and was wondering if anyone has successfully baked in their KA bowl or a glass/Pyrex bowl? If so, any tips on getting it to bake evenly and not be raw in the middle?

Thanks, I appreciate the help icon_smile.gif

I don't know the answer, but I'm interested! I'm going to be baking a cake in a large measuring cup (barbie dress) and I'm worried about the same issues.

I made the dress of my cinderella cake in a pyrex bowl. It was absolutely fine just took a bit longer to bake than in a tin.
I greased the bowl liberally with oil and once baked I loosened the sides by sliding spatula right down all the way round(does that make sense?!)
I always put some filling in my cakes so that I can cut them through and make sure they have baked properly!!!

My DH bought a glass measuring bowl set from Pampered Chef (because he knows I buy NOTHING from Pampered Chef). I just used the larger one to bake the "belly" on the beer belly cake in my pictures. I turned out perfectly. I think as long as it says it's ovensafe, you should be good (don't forget to grease it...I almost did)

The doll cake in my pics is done in a KA bowl. I used 1 mix and baked at 325, it probably took a little over an hour. I placed it on a 6 inch round to give it height.

Thanks, everyone! I'll post a pic after I make the cake this weekend. My daughter has NO IDEA. She will love it, being the princess she is.

One other question - based on the 5 qt KA bowl about how many servings would it be? Thanks again!

No one has mentioned a heating core...does that mean it isn't needed with a pyrex or KA bowl??

i didnt use a heating core, but now that you mention it, it wouldnt be a bad idea to stick a flower nail in it cause it does take a little longer to bake and that might help speed it up. As far as servings, I have no idea, I used one cake mix and then added it to the top of a 6 in round for height. Someone on here told me they just add extra rounds depending on how many servings they want.
