I will be making a flying saucer cake for my dad's b-day coming up. I want to make 2 9inchers and carve them. But.. that makes me nervous.
I read on google you can use stainless steel bowls or pyrex type of bowls to bake round cakes. How do I do this? Or do you suggest carving? I just wouldn't want to carve the bottom half of the saucer and it fall apart.

THe wilton ball pan is too small. TIA!!

Pyrex glass bowls are oven safe...I made a cake that looked like a coconut drink with a 6" cake and 2 - 1 qt pyrex bowls. Even if they're not pyrex brand, just check to make sure they say oven safe on the bottom.

I've also used a pyrex bowl, and had pretty consistent results! I just spray like normal and bake!
