I've made this chocolate Guinness cake (Nigella Lawson) before. It's delicious and looks good. But it would look even better baked in pint glasses (or half pint). It's a moist, slow-baking cake so should be fairly forgiving on cooking time.What should I consider before doing the experiment? Things I have thought of:
The glass breaking from heat.
Obviously this is a risk. I believe it would be a small risk if I place the glasses on a cold, thick baking sheet so they warm gradually without thermal shock. If anyone has tried this and proved me wrong, I'd like to know.
Paint on the glass.
Best of all would be to use a Guinness glass. But what would happen to the painted logo in the oven?
What haven't I thought of?
