I'm making a pregnancy belly cake for a friends baby shower in november and am stuck and confused over using a ball or sheet cakes.
I know the sheet cakes will take longer but will be easier to fill and carve. The ball I feel and have experienced before that it doesn't cook all the way through and will be harder to level the ball.
