Hi,

I'm trying to make a list of all the funny ingredients for a baking the cake routine.

1. Flour = flower
2. Cocca =
3. Sugar =
4. Milk =
5. Water =

What are the others?

There is a wonderful routine for exactly this in Martin Lewis' book, "Open Sesame." We adapted a version of it for one of our Circus Routines.

Something to keep in mind is that inconrgruities in ingredients can provide humour as well.

My favorite ingredient is 'Toothpaste'

That's so you can clean your teeth at the same time as you're eating. Smile

Now the milk, the very best goat milk. Booger ... uh, sugar.

I can't think of anything to go with your list but confetti for sprinkles, unopened sugar packets, powdered milk. And of course, if you happened to "forget" some ingredients at home, you can simply write the name of them on a piece of paper and add that as a subsitute.

Don't forget:

1)'Dates' (cut pieces from a calendar.

2) 'Nuts' (a few nuts from metal nuts and bolts)

3) 'Saltanas' (sawdust sounds similar)

4) 'Dish Cleaner' (so that the pan will clean itself after cooking)

5) 'about 10 Bananas' (multiplying sponge bananas [Dan Garrett])

6) 'clockwork Chatter Teeth' (so that the cake is pre-chewed)

7) 'a couple of Candles' (to grease the pan'

8) 'Smiley Man picture' (so that you will enjoy your cake)

9) ... to be continued...

Mustard -- use the plastic bottles that squirt the correct color string.

A milk carton with a "moo" can glued inside.

Just curious...have you guys ever used a cupcake pan? I haven't actually used one in a show, but I found that if you put too much in the bottom, the top pan sits too high and there is a gap between the two. So adding all those ingredients must be done with a little as possible. It's hard to know when to stop adding!

Are there any dove pans with a shallower fake than the bottom?

I use Oil - Baby Magic Oil (With lighter fluid in a used bottle)
When I had a egg, I use a blown egg shell and pretend to add it. Afterwards I crumple up the shell and toss it into the pan too. (Always gets a good reaction)

I don't know about the dove pans, but the cupcake pan has a *slightly* shallower load pan than the ingredient pan. But not enough to allow for many ingredients. Paper ingredients and other thin items are okay. In fact, I tried to load a regular cupcake (bought from the store) in the pan and it got jammed! I'll have to use mini cupcakes or make my own and trim them smaller. If I make my own, a law suite may follow! LOL!

I use the catsup bottle and a small Hellman's Mayonaise jar emptied and painted white inside with two small spring snakes.

Consider making your own from a deep cake pan and a flat pot lid. That will give you all the room you need.

Here's the type of lid I mean: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leebeane/3281308141/

Of course, it isn't self-contained and automatic like the ones you buy at the magic store, but it is operated like the old soup plate effects described in Rice's Encyclopedia and which are now going to waste for want of soup plates on every table. I can promise you no other magician in your area will have one like it! Freak out the magicians watching by spinning the lid around to show both sides before you slap it on the cake pan.

I don't actually add anything to the pan when I've used it. All the ingredients are pretend and somewhat goofy. Like the Catsup and Mustard, salt( with the lid covered with plastic so nothing comes out, milk carton with the Moo can inside, flour (flower). I only use this for very young audiences, so its basically all about dressing up the volunteer and adding the crazy ingredients.

A herring is always funny to me. Maybe it's the python fan.

I love this thread. I use a Duck pan to produce my rabbit....and I use all pretend ingredients, so that the birthday child is holding the pan (actually just touching it underneath, while I hold the pan) when the rabbit is revealed. I never thought to use wilder ingredients (though I do use the flower/flour gag)
I will try some of these at my next shows (3 tomorrow)

Also, how about...

Water= adding an "H" a "2" and an "O"

Cocca= chalk-last
