I was wondering, how do you keep the cake stationary since its a ball?
Dowels? Have a cake for a Bowling party tomorrow and i'm about to ice the cake when this just dawned on me.

I have not used one of those pans, but could you just cut a little bit off on one spot so it has a level part to sit on? Did the pan come with any instructions? I love those pans and have been wanting to get one, so I am very interested in what do you do to keep it stable.

I found the instructions on the Wilton site. Above is the link for it. It does say to slice a bit off so it will stay in place.

But, how in the world do you transport a cake like that?

When I used this pan I just placed the cake on a plate and it didn't move. I'm sure slicing a bit off so the cake would sit flat would be effective, or maybe placing some icing on the cake board/plate and then placing the cake on it would help too.

Hi there! I just used the pan for Christmas and I did cut a little sliver off so that it would rest evenly on the cake board. I also used icing to secure it to the board. It was really rather easy. I put it on a 6" round cake and never had any problems when I had to carry both about 100' to set it atop the columns for the 8" round base cake. It seemed extremely stable.

If you want to get it, I highly recommend it. It was worth it and I have used it for a baby rattle prior, but only as halves. There is so much opportunity with this pan.
