I am making a hamburger cake next week and I am wanting a nice "rounder" bun for the top piece. I was thinking of baking a cake in a ceramic bowl. Can this work? Do you have to have a specific ceramic bowl for this? Is there another way of achieving the dome? Here is a picture for an example of what I am talking about. Any tips would be so great!
anyone have an answer for me?? puh-lease??? lol
I don't remember which one of these videos is of the hamburger cake, or if it even was, but she did bake a cake in big round glass bowl. Maybe it was for a lady bug....?? I don't know, but she did bake it in the round bowl for a nice round top.
Hope this helps somewhat!!
imo, most definatley!!!!
i do this all the time! you don't get a thick crust on your cake and imo i think it is little more moist in texture, with the ceramic being thicker than a tin i cook it for slightly longer at a lower temp, but i think the ceramic holds the heat more therefore being cooked just a tad longer at a little lower temp.
i also bake in stainless steel mixing bowls, to get the more dome dome shape, i have found that the crust comes out quite thick and needs to be shaven, but i recently came across the tip of placing a nail in the middle of the cake while baking to reduce the baking time and guarantee a cooked cake in the middle, so the next time i bake one in a tin i will be using a nail and reducing the cook time hopefully = thinner crust.
Sorry it is long!!
