This is my first try at a pregnant belly cake. I have a large round pyrex bowl that I'm planning to bake it in. It measures about 11" across and 4.5" high. So I'm wondering how do I get it to bake evenly? Use a flower nail as a heating core? And how deep should I fill the bowl?

Any tips for success you can share would be greatly appreciated!

I use the ball cake pan, of course you will only need 1/2 but it cooks very evenly in it. I center it on the 9 by 13 cake and carve a waist, the breasts are with the mini ball pan. I'll attach a picture.

Thanks Connie, that's super cute but the ball pan is too small for what I have in mind and I don't want to do a 13x9 underneath.

Anyone else have baking recommendations for my large pyrex bowl? I'm baking the cake tomorrow (Sunday).

I used 2 10" layers & carved them - came out beautiful! Used mini ball pan for breasts.
