Let me preface this with - I am probably crazy


I need to make a barbie cake, don't have (nor does the store in my area) the appropriate pan. I had heard of someone using a pyrex bowl to get a skirt shape, but thought the kitchenaid stainless steel mixing bowl would look more skirt like.

Can anyone see problems with this? Can it go in the oven safely? I suppose I could also try sculpting a skirt out of round cakes . . .

I use regular pans and then trim them down. Like a 6, 8, and 9" x 2" tall each.

Just might work. I know I use a coffee cup to make the mini dolls and it works great.

Havenât tried the Kitchenaid bowl⦠Should be possible, just make sure to use some long metal piece inside the cake (in lieu of a heating core), and maybe wrap the bowl in a wet towel (for bake even strips), as such a thick cake would be a challenge to bake evenlyâ¦

I intended to shape mine out of regular rounds, but then decided to just use as is, as it seemed like a huge waste of cake to carve -- so my Barbie ended up a little "different", but here it is just as an alternative to the bell-shaped skirt:

The bowl is metal, I don't see why it wouldn't work. (Just don't quote me on that!) I would try it.

I agree with KoryAK bake in regular pans and carve. Just freeze them first so they don't crumble while you carve and use a serrated knife, thats your best bet. I would not risk messing up my KA, it's like one of my family members.

I suppose if you have a KA bowl to spare and you're feeling brave, I say go ahead and give it a shot! Then let all of us know how it turned out!
