I have to make a golfball cake that feeds 30. What is the best way to go about doing this? I hate to carve a ball; it's so much wasted cake! Any tips on what to do?

Buy the Wilton 3D ball pan - very simple and if you get a JoAnns or Michaels coupon, very cheap!!

Or you can use a stainless steel bowl to bake your cake in and put the halves together. That's what I did with my soccer cake and teapot cake (in my photos). You'll have to round off the flat top, but that's easy (I used smushed cake scraps mixed with icing to mold it). If you don't want to buy a ball cake mold this is one way to do it!

I've never baked a cake in a stainless steel bowl. Is it safe to bake in them?

It's stainless steel. Cooking utensils, cutlery, pots and pans are made of it. Yes, it's safe.

I used a pirex glass bowel to do a knitting ball cake and it came out fine icon_smile.gif Just bake 2 and stick them together to make your ball. Good luck
