Angel Food Cake Shot Glass Dessert

I’ve been seeing edible shot glasses all over the internet lately and I think they are awesome. I decided that for Valentine’s Day, I’d try making an angel food cake shot glass dessert. I was going to make edible angel food cake shot glasses and fill it with whip cream and raspberries. Doesn’t that sound fun? Well, my idea didn’t go as planned!

First I went to my local store and picked up some shot glass molds (affiliate link). I got home and quickly discovered that you can’t use these molds for baking. I went back to the store and found out that you can only get the baking shot glass molds (affiliate link) online (at least with that store). To Amazon I went to order my molds using Prime 2-day free shipping. Then I waited…

I was so excited when the shot glass molds came in the mail! I hopped online to see if there were any tricks to help with making my angel food cake shot glass dessert, but found nothing related to angel food cake. That should have been my first clue. Oh well, I’d press on through trial and error. Lots, and lots, of error!

I used boxed angel food cake mix because I’m really not a baker. I knew that angel food cake expands in the oven so I only filled the molds 1/2 way up. That was still too much. They almost ran over the edge of the mold!

My next batch was much better. I filled the molds only about 1/4 of the way full. So far, so good I thought…

I turned the molds upside down to cool and waited, and waited, and waited…

Time to pull them out! Yeah right… As with my first batch, these angel food cake shot glasses didn’t come out of the mold well at all. Hey, at least two of them worked and I’ve got batter to try one more time!

Unfortunately, the two glasses that came out of the mold well didn’t come off the inner mold as well…

All in all, one, just one, out of 18 angel food cake shot glasses I baked, actually turned out.

Or did it really?…

Look closely, this glass is missing it’s bottom!

I filled the shot glass with whip cream and raspberries and ate it anyway. It was SO GOOD!

So my angel food cake shot glass dessert for Valentine’s Day didn’t turn out. It was a fun adventure to try! At least I tried it early so I’m not out a dessert for tomorrow. Lesson learned…angel food cake does not make good edible shot glasses. Know what does work though? Brownies! Look for that post coming up next week!
