I do not have a spherical pan, so I am thinking of making 2 round cakes and then trimming. I hope this works.

Any inputs on trips and tricks on this is appreciated.

Thank you,

if you have three that are graduated in size say an 8" 7" 6" or a 6" 5" 4" -- that would be for a half round -- one hemisphere --

do you mean you're doing a full sphere -- i'd bake these cakes 6" 7" 8" 7" 6" or for smaller a 4" 5" 6" 5" 4" 

but what i do is leave the hump, most of it on the smallest baked cake to use for the top of the sphere

I am doing a half round.....ok, I will do 3 sizes that would be better.. Or I will cut the cakes in those sizes...

Will trimming still be required?

If you have a bowl the right size you could trim the edges off the cake when it's still a bit warm and invert it into the plastic lined bowl, add a little weight and then freeze it.  It will take on the shape of the bowl perfectly.  I did this with a wok to make a hamburger bun.

A pyrex bowl works really well for baking and has a maximum temperature of 490 Celsius.  It just needs to cool down slowly and uniformly, so let it cool at room temperature.  Don't stick it in the fridge right away or it could shatter.

oh i getcha now -- you did a test and made small circle of cake and it worked right? a 'dummy' is a non-edible cake usually made from foam so i couldn't wrap my head around what you meant till now

so it worked for you right? awesome, rains
