    If you slice the cake down the centre vertically, and then lay the cut ends together, you can make a football or easter egg. The small batter bowl makes a good baseball cap or half a softball, soccer ball or basketball.

    thanks those are definitly perfect for little boys, but how do you make the half ball since the bowl is kind of odd shaped?

    I cut the bottom off to make it flat and then cut a little of what I cut off to round out the top - hope this makes sense!

  6. Spider cake

    :) The spider cake is quite easy. You make the cake like you normally would and put it on a simple additions. Than you decorate it with chocolate frosting and than put chocolate sprinkles on it. You use 8 black licorich sticks for the legs. Make sure you put toothpicks in one of the ends and stick the other in the cake. And use gummy drops for the eyes. And you have yourself a spider. Oh so cute! I hope that this helped you out!

    Don't forget the Baked Alaska Cake from the Fall/Winter 2004 Celebrations Shows! That is an awesome cake and super easy. :)

  8. I have a handout that I give customers who want to know what types of cakes you can make with the batter bowl. The handout was given to me by my director but I believe it was originally put together by Cathy Bates. I cut and pasted a couple of the ideas below.


    Flower Pot Cake
    Bake a 1 or 2-Qt. Batter Bowl cake. Make a batch of Rice Krispy treats and cut out flower shapes with the Scalloped Bread Tube. Place a gumdrop into the center of each with a toothpick. Place each “flower” on a long skewer and poke them in the top of the cake. Looks like a flowerpot with flowers!! You can decorate the cake any way you want. Variation: Put crushed cookies on top to look like dirt and add gummy worms!
    Graduation Cake - Put a piece of cardboard on top of the cake and decorate it like a graduation cap.

    Easter Basket Cake
    Make a Batter Bowl Cake using only 1 cake mix and adding only half of the water the mix calls for. This needs to be an almost dense cake for this one. Place Batter Bowl cake with small end on the plate. Decorate cake like a basket, frosting with cocoa frosting, etc…..you can really go crazy and do a basket weave pattern all around the sides with the half-shell tip. Put a new pipe cleaner into a new straw and bend for the handle, inserting ends deep into the top of the cake. Frost the top with green frosting and sprinkle some green-tinted coconut on top of that. Then you can finish it off by putting some wrapped chocolate eggs on top of the “grass”.


    Noah’s Ark Cake
    Bake cake in 2-Qt. Batter Bowl. Set cake on platter just as it came out of the bowl. Frost with brown frosting and decorate with small animals, Bible figures. Tint coconut with blue food coloring for water around bottom of cake. You can also make a rainbow out of construction paper or poster board.

    “Over the Hill” Cake - Cut Batter Bowl cake in half and lay smaller ends touching. Decorate like an hourglass and a sign next to it to the effect of “Time is running out!”

    Deb I am definately going to make this for my kid halloween party. How do you make the cake? Is it just a normal 1 box chocolate cake mix and mix like normal & put into oven?
