I'm making a cake that will look like an igloo...can I pour the batter into a regular ceramic bowl and bake my cake in that? (for the 'house' part of the igloo) I don't have any stainless steel bowls large enough, but would it work better in one of those rather than ceramic? And should my temperature change at all since it won't be a typical cake pan?

I bought some ceramic bowls at the dollar store, and I've used them several times to bake cake and make bread bowls. The ceramic has never warped on me, and my baked goods always come out the shape of the bowl's interior. I just bake longer at a lower temp.

I've baked in overware ceramic bowls. I did bake one in the KA mixing bowl, but ended up not being able to eat it (was for my niece's Barbie cake, so decorated & made cupcakes due to time restraints). I think now the problem was that I didn't adjust the heat from 350. The shape was perfect though!
