I started out with 2 bowls to make the head and a rectangle pan for the body and 3 round pans for the wings of this Dragonfly Birthday Cake. I think if I was going to do it again I would use all rectangle pans and 2 bowls. I used Pyrex bowls and lined them with parchment paper to be sure that the pieces would come out without breaking.
I made part of the cake chocolate and the rest was regular white cake which I added pink food coloring to the pan I used for the body. I had a great time doing it and it was loved by all!!
