My I-thought-I-had-an-original-idea ice cream cone cupcake pan
Don’t you hate it when you get all your ice cream cones filled with batter only to have them tip over and spill in the pan when you try to put them in the oven? I decided to make a pan prototype to bake my cones in to stop the spills and mess! Yup, I made a prototype. And I was going to mass-produce it and sell it on HSN and become a billionaire, er, or at least a thousand-aire. But my dreams were crushed when I realized someone else already designed one. And it was better than mine. So much for my big break. BUT considering I wasted so much time making my pan, I’m going to show you it anyway. I bought this cheap tin pan from the 99 cent store. I took a sharpie and measured out a 3 x 4 square grid. Once my circles were cut out I just flipped it over and put it on a cookie sheet. Brilliant, right? And just for fun I took a picture of what it looks like from the underside. So there you have it. And now for a 2nd tutorial on how to make Cupcake cones. Fill the cones with batter.

Rainbow Cake in a Jar I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight.
