Hey everyone!! I am looking to make a quick cake for a friend of mine who is turning 21 and I was wondering if I can just bake a cake directly into one of those giant martini or margarita glasses. Would it be too thick to cook through, or would the tapered shape of a martini glass allow for it to bake evenly? Also, do you think a heating core would help? I've seen them in the store, but don't know a lot about them...I assume you just put it in the center and it helps heat the inside of the cake better? Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks, hope everyone is having a great day!

Unless it says oven safe, I'd pass on the idea. Not all glass is tempered to withstand oven heat for that length of time.

For my liquor cakes (you can see them in my photos), I always bake cake in shot glasses, and have never had a problem. Aren't martini glasses thinner than shot glasses?

I would just fill with truffles

Even if the "bowl" of the glass would make it through, I doubt the stem would........ they are not made for baking in......

I would bake a round and just drop it inside. I have thought of this myself
but I didn't want to clean it up if it busted in my oven.

good idea ... don't use a flower nail or baking strips, so it domes really high ... then you can drop it in upside down and it should fill the glass almost perfect!

It would make a really cool looking cake! If you do this one, let us know how it turns out.

I'm seeing rum cakes in these glasses for bachelorette parties!

Hi, Dina

I made a cake for valentine's day and i wanted to fit a matini glass so what i did was I line the maritini glass with alumunium foil a almost 3 layers making an exact mold of the martini glass, then I use a cupake pan to hold the martini mold. an well the rest i like a normal cake mold when i comes to fill it up. I hope this help you.
Let me know how it turns out.

AI know this is an old thread but yes you can bake in a martini glass. We tried it. Got glasses from good will. Sanitized them used regular cake mix. Baked it at 325 degrees for 20 mins. Melted the frosting a bit to make it soft and put it on top. We put them on a baking sheet just incase. Made 4 at a time.
