Hello out there! Just wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions as to which pans are best to use for making a cute lady bug cake? I've seen many of them in the gallery but none of them have specified which pan was used. Thanks so much!

I have a 6 inch and 8 inch half ball pans..Both are ideal for a cute 2D ladybug.

I've used the rugby ball half pan as well, needed ore servings and made smaller individual ones with the miniball pan

I have not done it but, have seen a couple that were baked in Pyrex bowls....sounded like a clever idea for people, like myself, who have no ball pans yeticon_smile.gif.

I have used pyrex bowls to get that ball shape. Worked perfect!

You can also use the football shaped pan too, I'd imagine, although I'd probably use another layer underneath as well for height (like a trimmed rectangular sheet). Good luck!

I used the Wilton ball pan for this one in my gallery. It fits perfectly on top of an 8" round cake. It is versatile and I was able to use it to make other types of cake too. Perfect size.
