Corning Ware or Pyrex bowls are specially made to take the heat of an oven, so, no, they're not "just regular glass bowls". The ones I use in the oven to make a doll skirt are Anchor Hocking I believe, and they are much thicker than a normal casserole bowl. They're designed to go in the oven.
aizuodangao, I grease and flour my bowls/pans one of two ways: 1) with a brush, take shortening and brush a thin layer over all interior surfaces; put flour into the pan, roll, pat, turn, and shake the flour over the entire greased surface until it is all floured; shake out the excess flour. 2) spray the interior of the bowl/pan with a non-stick spray that doesn't have flour in it until the surface is completely moist. As with the first method, flour the surface until completely coated with flour, shake out the excess.
I like to make certain that every nook, cranny, crack and crevice is completely greased and floured so that I don't have any problems with my cakes releasing from the pan after they are baked.
I hope these tips help.
