I would like to make a hamburger cake to take to a BBQ at the end of the month. I'm not sre what to use as a pan for the top bun though - I don't have a glass bowl that's round to bake in unfortunately.
Do you think that if I just don't use my bake even strips I'd get enough of a dome for the top bun? Should I still use my flower nail for the centre? (I'm only planning to do an 8" cake though) I don't want to get into carving the bun since I don't plan to ice the outside of the bun if I don't have to - I want to have all the toppings be the icing.
Any hints? I've seen some amazing ones on here Thanks.
I found this on e-how!
You know when you bake in the 8" and sometimes you have to level it..
Maybe just not level the one cake so you have the rounded top! Ezpz.
On mine I used a regular pan, it had a dome and then I cut down on the sides to make it a complete dome instead of partial dome and then the flat sides from the pan sides. I don't use a flower nail. I did ice mine though.
But if you aren't going to ice or carve then the dome should be good enough from the pan as is.
I bake mine in a 2qt round Pyrex dish.
I have one in my pictures that i just recently did. I used normal 9" round pans and on one didnt take use the baking strips and got a nice come for the top bun. Take a look at my pics.
