I just know that my fellow CC friends can help me figure this one out!

I was asked by a local ice cream shop if I can make some cake bowls for them. At first, I didn't know what he was talking about. Then he showed me a flier for Charlie's Cake Bowls, http://www.charliescakebowls.com/index.php (if the link gets blocked, just google it).

The website says that they are 3" wide, 2" high & can hold 4oz of ice cream. Obviously this was baked in some sort of mold or special pan, but I haven't been able to find anything like that online. Surely (between all of us here) we can come up with something!!!!

Any ideas???

looks like it was baked in a shortcake pan to me.

I used to have one of these:

It could be perfect. You can only make 4 at a time but it works like a waffle maker. The bowls it makes are actually prettier than the ones in the website you linked but about the same size. I loved mine and used it a lot. The only reason I don't still have it is because we were moving and at that point the novelty had worn off so it got sold in the pre-move yard sale.

you mix your batter and put it on the underside of a muffin tin.

Yep, BakingIrene is correct.  Some of Charlie's bowls look almost carved, but these pans would give you the straight sides like his. . . .

That works well for cookies, not so much for cake :)

I have made those before! I used this pan that I found on amazon. They were really easy to use just spray the pan with some cooking spray first and the cake bowls pop right out. Hope this helps, heres the link to it :)

I also saw these on amazon. I personally like the rubber silicon molds more than any other mold, I find them easiest because of their flexibility. I use them a lot for when I make homemade reese cups. You can only make 2 at a time with these though unless you have a few of the molds. Good Luck! :)
