I would like to make a "racy" breast cancer awareness cake to send to work with my husband next week. Something with "domes" so to speak icon_wink.gif

Anyway, I don't have the sports ball pan and can't afford to buy one right now. I've read that you can bake in Pyrex mixing bowls. Would regular metal ones work? You know, the basic cheap kind everybody has. I've got one in the perfect size, but I'm afraid I'll blow up my oven or something lol.

If no, then any ideas for how to get a round cake without layering and carving? I'm guessing THAT's a no though lol.

Sure, metal mixing bowls are fine to bake in. If it has a flat bottom you might want to stick a flower nail in there to help it bake better, otherwise don't worry about it.

Anyhow, the wilton sports ball pans are two little metal bowls and then a couple of rings to set on the oven shelf so they stand up...just like your mixing bowl, except that good ol' wilton didn't attach the rings to the bowls because that would have made too much sense.
