I am using the sports ball pan to make a teapot cake. Can anyone tell me how many servings the sports ball pan feeds?

I usually get 15-20 servings out of it. A teapot will have 2 halves put together so it would be more.

That pan should only serve about 12-15 people using both halves. I usually cut each half into 6 servings. I serve the top half first and then the bottom, otherwise, if I try to cut through both halves at once the cake tends to fall over when serving.

For some reason I thought you were talking about the soccer ball pan! icon_redface.gif The sports ball would give less servings.

are you talking about the 2 half round pans that you put together to form a 3D ball?

This is the one I thought she was referring to. LOL

it's not my favorite pan either. I never get a round cake it always seems to need another 1" layer in between to get a truly round "ball"

Exactly! Or it looks smooshed! icon_biggrin.gif I don't like baking for an hour and the top is always crispy. I always over fill so I can cut away that top part.

you're welcome. I haven't had the chance to do a teapot with it yet, but now that I'm finally going to have a little girl, I hope to do a one for a birthday sometime.
