i need to make the dress for a barbie doll and dont really want to pay out for the tin, ive heard you can make it in a pyrex dish, is this right? and how do i do it? microwave or oven? and what mearuements of ingredients do i need? thanks. x
I cook mine in the oven, as for the measurements it depends on the size of the bowl
i aint got a clue what size dish to do it in. as it is in lts and i need it by inches. im new to all this and feel useless at the min. x
do you make your cakes from scratch or a box mix?
from scratch usually, x
Ok then I might be able to help, just get your bowls out and put the doll against it to choose the size. If you let me know the size of the bowl I may be able to help
thanks so much hun. im going to get it next week so will let you know, ive done one b4 but cut it out myself and was so hard lol. x
well i brought my bowl today, ive brought a 1ltr pyrex bowl, what measurements do i use and is it best to do in the microwave or oven? thanks. x
I go by how many eggs there are in your recipe, I would use a recipe that requires 2 eggs and cook in the oven.
I use my pyrex bowls all the time for balls and barbie dresses. I fill the bowl about 2/3 of the way up. I bake at 300. Time varies depending on what kind of cake I am making and which bowl I am using. I usually start out at 40 mins. It almost always takes more time. Make sure you spray it with cooking spray and remove from the bowl after about 5 minutes. I have left the cake in the bowl longer and it seems to soak up lots of moisture and becomes soggy. Good luck!!
what measurements do you use hun? x
I use a doctored WASC cake most of the time(family favorite). One betty crocker cake mix, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup sour cream, 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, 1 tbsp almond, 1 tbsp vanilla. (I omit the sugar that most people put in the WASC. I have diabetics in the family and try to keep out as much of the stuff I can get away with.) This will make 2 of the 1L pyrex bowls. If I only need one, I make cupcakes to give away. Sorry I don't have a scratch recipe that I have tried with it. HTH
