can I bake in mixing bowl

How do I know if a mixing bowl is safe to bake a dome shaped cake in?

From the editor:

Any stainless steel bowl makes a good cake pan, but if you're using glass bowl, best to check if it's oven proof. You'll be able to tell by use of the words 'heat tempered' or 'oven proof' on the bottom of the bowl.

One thing to know about baking in a bowl is that the baking time will be much longer than you're used to, so lower the temperature by 15-20 degrees.

Another trick you can use to ensure even baking is to place a decorator' tool called a flower nail, upside down in the middle of the bowl before pouring in the cake batter. The metal tool will heat up, baking the cake from the center out, so you'll end up with a more evenly baled cake.
