how to make a ladybug cake?

sciencediet | Jul 29, 2009 07:42 AM

My daughter is turning 4 this weekend (is this sounding familiar?) and wants a ladybug cake. This doesn't seem like it would be complicated (hey, at least she didn't ask for a dragonfly) but I'm a little stymied.

I usually bake from scratch (although I did buy a box mix as a backup), but all the chocolate cake recipes I have are for layer cakes. I want a big round cake, but I don't think I need layers. One option that I've read about is to bake the cake in a stainless steel mixing bowl to make a dome, but I'd like to hear from a real person that this actually works, and that a standard recipe for two 8" layers will do the trick.

Or I have an 8" springform pan that's fairly deep--would that work?
