I know it's possible, but is it feasible? And how would I go about doing it? Just stacking and carving?

I'd love to make my MIL a teapot cake for her bday but don't have a ball pan.

If you have a Pyrex bowl, you can bake in those. Mark the bowl so that you bake the same depth and the cake is symmetrical. Have done in the past is an easy alternative to a ball pan.

I second what cleeclan says: I've used pyrex bowls to get a ball shape before, too. You might have to round the cake just a little where the two layers meet, but it works very well.

i've even used an all metal mixing bowl before. only thing to keep in mind is if the bottom of the bowl is flat, try to use one that is as round as possible. Good luck!

This video is brilliant if you want to carve from layers

Do you think on the carving one she had the cake frozen?

I would say so. It looks so neat and hardly any mess. I'll be trying it this way when I do it in a few months time.
