If it were me and I didn't have the ball pan, I would fill and stack layers...supporting after 2 layers...then freeze until firm but not rock hard and begin carefully carving the shape. I'd also make extra layers because if I didn't, I would probably mess it up. For whatever reason, just knowing I have the extra layers makes it a more relaxed/less stressful situation all the way around.

I made this one using a basin for the bottom, and dolly varden tin for the top.

Could you just use a stainless bowl and bake two cakes? I don't want to buy a new pan, and wondered if this method worked for anyone?

Do you have any pyrex bowls that are oven safe? You can bake a cake in those. Or the Pampered Chef glass measuring bowls. I don't know about stainless steel bowls. HTH

I once used 2 rounds and then a pie tin on top to get a more rounded shape, then carved from there. Less waste and hopefully more precise in the end since there's not quite as much to cut away.
