I cut a crenshaw melon like this with the point of it at the top of the handle. It looked so adorable! Then I just refilled it with the sliced melon and some blueberries.  It turned out so well. Thank you for the inspiration!!!!

24  COOKING / Dessert / My attempt at microwave cake! on: June 11, 2009 04:45:47 PM
 I was skimming along when I saw the recipe for a microwaved chocolate cake earlier and though it looked wonderful I had a few questions about how it turned out. Turns ou many other people had the same questions as me.  so from what I gathered (please don't hate me I am just saying Embarrassed) it is very high calorie and tough. So I wondered if I could come up with a solution. 


I didn't. Not really at least.
   I can up with a recipe that had no oil, no dairy, and wasn't so tough, though!
It is Much smaller because I started my testing from half the original recipe, then only used half of the batter I made each time to try different times in the microwave.

 Mix together in a small bowl:
    1Tbs self rising flour
    1ts sugar
    1/4ts dried egg whites
    1/4ts baking Powder
    1ts cocoa

Mix in a seperate bowl:   
    1/4ts lime juice
    1/2ts vanila
    1Tbs soy milk (but I am sure regular milk would work fine)   

       -Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and barely mix it where there is still quite a bit of the dry mixture visible.

       - Scrape batter into a paper cut.

       -Microwvae on high for 30 seconds

This is the basic recipe I came up with but microwaves are... well, just not ovens. Cry

This recipe is very nice for just a preoccupation than anything, good project for when one may be bored.

    -the paper cup is important: larger, ceramic, cups make for a longer cooking time and     tougher cake
     - chocolate chips, cinnamon, or anyother extra would be wonderful with this recipe.
               I found sugar free chocolate syrup is really good with the little cake.^^
     - I am used to very little sugar so one may want to up the sugar some what just for an extra treat and flavor boost.

       Thank you for reading!^^

I've made this cake a few times and it's never tasted any good to me... but maybe I did something wrong?? Who knows... yours looks like it came out smaller.. mine was huge! and it had over flowed the cup too...

Ha ha!  You know...it's not exactly the greatest cake in the world...ha ha...it's kind of chewy...but hey..instant cake....no complaints there!  Cheesy

To remedy that problem I would just suggest making two smaller ones in two smaller cups (less time each of course). It gets too chewy because it is over-cooked I do believe.
   Worth a try^^

               Happy Baking

Hi, I sell muffins at school to pay for ballet classes and stuff Tongue
the thing is my muffins are like flat, and I want them to be more puffy :S
I use Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines cake mixes
here's a graphic to explain my problem

Im filling the paper cup to the top :S

what do you think it could be happening?
Am I adding too much water?
too much oil?
Its the oven Too hot
or not hot enough?
isnt it possible to get cute puffy cupcakes with premade cake mix?

I would really thank any advice Tongue


I really dont believe it is even possible to get a cute perfect cake out of a premade cake mix. For one, you are filling the cups way to much. when it says 2/3 full it means it. Filling that full gives it time to build a base and safely expand in a shape exactly like your drawing. However, if you want more of a
   __      __

...Well a shape that would create a "muffin top" fill the cup 3/4 of the way full.
   There are many other nit pick things to do but I hope this will solve the problem.
                                                                Happy Baking^^
30  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Konnichiwa from Clemson, South Carolina! on: June 08, 2009 11:21:38 AM
       Eternally dabbling in any craft that seems worth while and sometimes in
projects that I eventually look back and ask "What was the point?"
     But no matter what I always love having creative fun.

Projects I enjoy:
  Costume sewing
     (favorite types: Elizabethan, Pirates, Lolita)
   Kanzashi (only a beginner)

    How about this, I just love all projects and chances are I have worked with it or am planning on trying it in the near future. I love knowledge exchanging and new Ideas or styles are always welcome. I cannot wait to start sharing some of my projects and get feed back on your thoughts about them!^^
