Maybe it would fizz and make a very light cake? (wishful thinking?) Maybe it would explode...

I only used a tablespoon of mix and a 1/2 tablespoon of Shrek Talking Rain...not any extra fizz and it didn't explode. Now I have to wash another dish

That's why I used a bigger bowl and only 1 tablespoon...I expected it to boil out of the bowl.

It was good of you to take one for the team and experiment!

My brother and I used to experiment by pouring mulitple liquids in the bathroom sink (with the stopper in!) to see what would happen, it's a wonder we didn't kill ourselves with the fumes.

Lemon Pledge, sprayed in the bathtub makes a fantastic brief torch...takes you longer to clean the smoke off the walls than it takes to flame...

No explosions or microwave sparks, but chocolate chips settled and melted nicely for a bottom layer of rich fat goo.

cake, recipe

3, 2, 1 Cake 3, 2, 1 CAKE I got this in an email, so thought I'd share. These individual little cakes are amazing and ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat and calories that cake can have. Genius idea! INGREDIENTS: 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix 1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavor Makes 1 serving. (Keep reading) DIRECTIONS: In a ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well. For each individual cake serving, take out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have your own instant individual little cake! KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of fat free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit, or ice cream sauce, or.... Helpful Tips: This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is "3 tablespoons mix, 2 tablespoons water, 1 minute in the microwave!" TRY various flavors of cake mix like carrot, brownie mix, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food mix; the other is your choice. The flavor possibilities are endless! NOTES: The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple, put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry. Always remember, that one of the cake mixes MUST be Angel Food. The other can be any flavor. The Angel Food is the cake mix that has the eggs whites in it. 3 stars 1 reviews
