Can I make a spherical cake without a special pan?
Is there any way to make a ball cake (or really, half of one) without buying a specialty cake pan? I honestly just need it this once, and really don't have the space for a(nother, oops) gimmicky pan. I've been eying a couple of my smaller Pyrex bowls, but I can't imagine that will end well. Short of carving three or four regular rounds, does anyone have any suggestions?
