Topic: Cupcake pan
Message: Posted by: Decibel33 (Jun 15, 2009 11:12PM)
I ordered this from the Magic Warehouse and received it late last week. I want to load a mini cupcake in it ahead of time, and then do some "baking" with the kids. What's a typical routine? Just looking for ideas. How do you incorporate flash paper with this item?

Although I rarely use flash paper, since I work with very young audiences, I have done this from time to time. I simply use the piece of flash paper as the "recipe" that I refer to during the routine. At the end, I check to see if there is one last step, and find that it says "add the recipe". I look bewildered for a moment, then shrug my shoulders, crumple the paper and drop it into the pan. All that is left is to light it to "cook" the cake.

:cake:

Try adding some flower(paper flower), a green "P" (a gren paper pea), evaporated milk (empty can), sugar(whole packet unopened), I would personally stay away from using fire, perhaps add confetti to the pan and have confetti candy on the cupcake.
After all confetti is the new fire.

OOPS a green paper letter "P"

Random thinking... My personal preference would be to avoid the actual fire also. Hot Sauce could put the FIRE in a cup cake. You could have a little bell to "ding" when the cup cake is done (ie microwave). The bell, signaling the cooking process is done. Or use this diamond cut "Flame silk" it should fit... http://themagicwarehouse.com/SI3249/Silk-Flame-Silk.html

I like using the cupcake pan with a donut finally.

That is a great idea DeWayne ! I love thinking like this. I look at readymade props as "parts", and as they used to say on TV, "parts is parts". Using a prop for something other than what it was intended for is what creativity is all about. That fire silk is "cool" !

Thanks for all the advice! I'm certain to steer clear of fire. The ideas presented here are great. Packets of sugar, paper flower, and confetti (not sure what you mean by "evaporated milk (empty can)"...you mean use an empty can, or empty the can?) Stuffing a fire silk into the pan is also great. Although I haven't used the cupcake pan before, so I don't know how much room I have to stuff in the bottom pan.

Anyway, thanks again for the great ideas!

I was really happy to find this thread, as I just ran into the cupcake pan at an online catalog, and had put it on my short wish list. Been using dove pans for years, but this thing would be very cool, especially since cupcakes are easier to transport than a cake !

Nothing is easier to make than a Diamond Cut "Flame" silk.

All you need is a Diamond Cut Silk (white or lemon yellow) and Sharpie pens (Red, Orange and golden yellow).

Since there is not a lot of room to stuff junk in the base pan, I use:

Frosting - A flake from a small box of Frosted Flakes
Sugar - The whole packet
Flour - a small feather flower
Cream/Milk - A packet of coffee creamer
Candle - A small birthday candle
Food Coloring - A multicolored silk strip that I pull out of my empty closed hand. The fifteen inch one works great.

We close the cover, think warm and happy thoughts. Keep thinking...Then I yell OUCH - we both jump and the cake is revelaled. The Audience believes that the pan got hot because I asked the birthday kids, "Do you feel it getting warmer?" The answer is always YES
