Has anyone ever tried baking a cake in their Kitchenaid mixing bowl? I don't have a wonder mold pan, but I thought the mixing bowl would work for a doll cake. I just don't know if it would ruin the bowl. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

I know my Pampered Chef large batter bowl can be used as a doll pan.

I doubt that it would ruin the bowl, but I think that it would be very, very challenging to get most cake batter to bake evenly in that bowl without a core. That is what is "wonderful" about the Wonder mold -- the tube up the middle to help distribute the heat.

I use an old pyrex mixing bowl that says "oven safe" on the bottom. When I make doll cakes, I'll use my pyrex bowl and one of my round cake pans and just stack them. It always works fine for me.

pkingham72 - I was going to try baking a cake in a pyrex pan. What size pan do you use and how much batter do you put in it? Thanks!

caf-

I just use a small mixing bowl that I have. I got a set of 3 as a wedding gift years ago and I use the smallest one. That's what I've always used for my doll cakes. I use about half of a cake batter recipe.

The kitchenaid bowl works just fine.

I had a friend use mine to make the doll cake. She filled the kitchen aid bowl with one box of mix and then added to 8" layer cakes underneath. This helps with the height if you are using a barbie doll instead of the doll picks.

When I did my doll cake, I baked 2 8" layers and a 6", then froze, stacked and carved them. It was super easy!

You could bake a layer in an 8 " round pan and another in a pyrex bowl. Put about 1 and a half inches of batter in the bowl and let it bake until it tests done with a toothpick...probably around 45 minutes but just keep checking it after 35 min.
