Does anyone know how it's done? Does anyone have a recipe? I have looked online and can't find anything that I'm looking for. There are over 85+ pages here and the "search" didn't return anything either.

TIA!

Hi! What do you mean? Like baking in an oven-proof coffee cup?

Yes, something like that. I have seen a picture or two but I can't find them. Maybe it would be easier to use cupcakes and just insert them into mugs and decorate? That would take care of the cups in the oven problem?

You can also do cake shooters or cake shots. Alternate cake and icing/filling in a shot glass.

I've made cakes in oven proof coffee cups, but u have to make sure they say oven safe! I bought a white set (with a 20 percent coupon) at bed bath beyond - a full size cup set and espresso set. Not a mug but a nice shaped cup. It's more batter for the full size cup than a cupcake so you have to watch the oven for doneness. And I use vegetable spray inside the cup. No problem. Ive used chocolate cake, tried it frosted and unfrosted with a white frosting ring around the top. I haven't posted any pix but Ive also used a piece of a chocolate covered preztel for a handle! I'm still fine tuning this idea but for me coffee and cake in the same package is perfect!

You bake the cupcakes in their liners and place them in the cup. Otherwise you will have guests trying to scoop the cupcake out of the cup - very messy..

This website has some ideas for cakes in jars, but I would think you could just do the same in cups. hth

Thank you theresaf! That's what I'm after. Can you post a pic or two whenever you get a chance? I thought I had read that it could be done in a cup like a coffee cup. The woman then sold the cake and mug or cup for X amount. I thought it was an unusual but cute idea.

Thank you for the website links! I think they are cute and somewhat easy to do. I think I'll be baking sometime soon.

I've baked cake in small canning jars. When I bake them I put the jars in a 10x13 pan with about and inch of water in the bottom. Never had a problem with breaking. I have instructions and pictures on my blog if you want to take a look.

You could try 5 Minute mug cake.
Done in the microwave...

Misty, I've uploaded my coffee cup pix here . This is actually the best photo I have.   http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2158574
If this link doesn't work, just look at the latest photo (so far) in my gallery. Let me know if you try it too! Theresa

One day, just messing around with new ideas, I made strawberry daiquari cake baked in cocktail glasses. They turned out really good!!! I was waiting for the glass stems to shatter but they didn't.

I make cupcakes and then put them in cute teacups and decorate them. I'll try to attach a picture but I am not sure if it will attach since I have been having problems uploading pictures on here for a while. If it doesn't attach, look in my photos. They are in there. Or actually... here is the link to them:

I LOVE the heart with chocolate and the coffee cake!!

Thanks Misty! It is soo nice to hear/read!! The heart is cake covered to look like a candy box ( I got the idea from a Bakerella blog and went from there!) as a little something for my husband. I made a smaller candy box for my niece too. I definitely want to do the coffee cup again but I haven't had the chance because of new ideas I have. I did make a large coffee cup cake for my dad for Father's Day but that wasn't an individual serving!! For that one I used a flavored pudding to look like coffee in the cup! I would use that idea in an individual serving too. Please post what you try!
