Not quite sure what you are asking.  Do you mean like a zero?  Round cake?  Vertical?  Horizontal?

AA sphere? Yes, you need a ball pan or bake in a bowl. Stainless steel or Pyrex.

AI believe that the reason you aren't getting much in the way of answers here is because we are all thinking "A round cake? Well, that's obvious; you use a round pan." So we are assuming you mean something more complex than that, like a sphere a.k.a. a ball. I think we need you to clarify what you are asking. :)

AOooooh! I get it; round! Lol! Sort of cylindrical, right? I believe you would have to carve your cake into the shape you want. I don't know of any pan that is that shape. Oh, I just thought of something! What if you baked the cake in cleaned out tin cans?

I use fruit cans for totally cylindrical cakes.  I thoroughly grease and line them and I get cylinders which I have used with the children when they were little to make freestanding showmen and santas.  You would be able to make a few and then carve off one side so it lays flat.
