I am making a Prego belly cake this weekend and was wondering what size bowls to use. I have 2 cup bowls for the boobies and a 8 quart for the belly. Is that too big? It's for around 40 ppl. What size should I use? Another question, How do you cut this for 40 ppl? I will attach a picture of a belly cake that I found on CC...

I have made a "boob" cake from a wilton ball pan. They were the perfect size. as for the belly I tried that in a pyrex bowl and it sank in the middle. I haven't tried it since. Good Luck!

I used the 1/2 soccer ball for the belly and two 1/2 ball pans for the boobs and they were waaaay too big in proportion. I would use cupcakes. I have attached a tutorial that I wish I would have followed.
*Don't click on the hobbycakes link, but DO right-click on the 2nd How to Make a Belly Cake.pdf tab and open up the tutorial in a new window.

wow... thank you for doing this and making it easier for me. My daughter in law is pregnant with her second baby and when I saw this cake for the first time earlier this year I told her I wanted make it and bring it to her place of work the last day she works before she goes on maternity leave. Problem was I didn't really know how to go about doing it. Now I do!!!!
I would have figured it out but now ... that's done for me icon_biggrin.gif

take a look at my photos. I used some tea straws for support and then just layed the belly on top , then added my fondant in two pieces one for the bodice and one for the dress. I used the wilton egg shaped pan for the belly and the wilton mini wonder mold pan for the breasts, I just trimmed them a bit to make them more rounded. HTH... have fun

No problem - have fun! Unfortunately, mine looked pornographic because it was out of proportion (in my photos) but my CEO loved it - lol! Should have used the cupcakes, though... I know, she makes it look so easy!

Thank you to everyone for the help..I ended up using the pyrex bowls..Someone else told me to use a bunt cake pan and I found the instructions on CC.
