Help! Hemisphere pan confusion...

Hi everyone!

Oh boy, I've really done it this time, lol. I've decided to make an owl cake for my baby's first birthday (her smash cake). So in theory, alls well. I know what I have to do. Just not sure how to go about it. The pan is the issue. 

It's this one: http://www.fatdaddios.com/catalog/hemisphere-ball-1 - the 2" by 4" one. I looked it up on their chart and it holds 5/8 of a cup of batter. It also says due to the anodized aluminum (which is what I have) to reduce the temp by 25º. I'm planning on using regular old Duncan Hines for that. How long should I cook it for? Any ideas? I know I'm going to do a test run, but I haven't the slightest on what to even base the starting point off of. LOL Twenty minutes? It's small - three servings - but then you have the depth. LOL

Thanks!

YEP, start with cupcake time and check for doneness.  But why Duncan Hines?  Be brave and try my Indestructible Chocolate Cake!
