AI need to make a giant ball cake that serves roughly 25 people. I don't even know where to begin with this cake. Wilton has a ball mold for its 6 inches. What size round cake pan should I buy to make this cake? I'm not good at carving cakes as of yet so I wanted to be on the safe side and use cake pans. Or should I try to carve the cake?

I'd do a half ball and make the bottom out of styrofoam. I've done full ball shapes before but if you're new to carving I don't know if that would be the first project to start with! You can get the half ball shape, anchor it to the cake board, and put a board with the cake on it, then carve the top part to match the bottom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykcLgz3DlYg

AThe wilton ball pan is pretty easy to use. It serves 12. You can stack it on top of another cake (with supports--dowels/straws and cardboard) to make up the additional servings. If you go the carving route, you are likely to waste a lot and spend a lot of frustration. Do you have a bowl you could bake in to make a larger ball? Stainless steel or Pyrex bowl?

ANo but I will have to buy one. What size bowl should I buy? The customer doesn't want another cake underneath. The only want the ball standing alone as the cake.
