I have been playing with several bowls and pans to come up with the body shape for a 3 D Cookie monster cake. I have settled on a 1.5 quart stainless steel bowl, 7 inch round. I can figure out the batter amount for the round but does anyone know about how much batter it would take for the bowl? I have never cooked a cake in a bowl before is it safe to cook in a stainless steel bowl? One of the bowls is a thinner metal and the other one is thicker. What should I do to make sure the center gets baked? Are there certain types of stainless steel that wouldn't be safe for baking? Any help greatly appreciated.
Here's a link to Kris's pic of cookie monster cake and how she put it together
To figure out how much batter you need just fill the bowl with water to the point you would fill it with batter ...probably 2/3 full, then measure the amount of water. The average cake recipe yields between 3-4 cups of batter so that should help you figure out how many batches of cake you will need.
I have no idea about baking in bowls so I can't help you with that. Good luck. I love Cookie Monster.
