Pampered Chef: Graduation Batter Bowl Idea and ?????

    Hi all! Just wanted to fill you in on an idea in the works. A friend of mine decorates cakes, and hasn't had her party yet so I lent her my Classic Batter Bowl to make a graduation cake. She will be using the bowl cake for the skull cap part of a mortar board. For the flat part she is covering a square piece of cake board with fabric to match the skull cap part, and adding a tassel and fabric covered button. I think she is placing the mortar board on a larger sheet cake to provide more servings. She promised to take pics when she is done, but I wanted to pass this on since it is that time of year and other people might want to try it.

    And, speaking of this time of year, one starts thinking of kids going away to college. So, as a thread, what do you think would be the ideal PC things for a young person living in a dorm room? An obvious choice to me would be the fluted cake pan - can you imagine how popular in the dorm you would be when people have the late night munchies and you whip up a 10-minute cake? LOL. Also, the small bar pan since it would fit in a microwave.

    Obviously someone in a dorm room can't have all the PC accoutrement, so it wouldn't be as big a gift registry as a bridal registry, but we can definately try to develop people as long-time customers when they are younger. Have any of you sent your kids off to college with PC? What did they take?

    college ideas

    I found this on another thread and thought it would just be easier to copy and paste it than make everyone hunt for it. :D I think it was Deb that posted it:

    I use the Classic Batter Bowl as a "college bowl" . One that every college kid can participate in.
    Eat cheerios in it
    Make pancakes and pour from it
    Boil rice or noodles in the micro wave ( soup, chili too)
    Bake in it in the regular oven
    Eat out of it
    Store left overs with the lid on in the fridge
    Reheat -lid on -keeps microwave clean
    Eat out of it again
    Place it in the dishwaher or wash it in the sink
    Anyway you clean it, a college kids dream

    Also MUST haves
    Classic scraper
    Twixit-its- these will do so much- there is a chart for all the ways Quikut knife Suds pump Bar board Small Bar pan Microcooker Mini Whisk

    I have a list of things college kids want to take with them. I will post it when I get home. I also have another one with things campers need.

  5. I'm interested in seeing the 'camper's list'. That would be a great show theme for this summer!

  7. "Real" College Idea

    I learned this from my Director, and it's totally "tongue in cheek" humor. (Only do this with the right crowd, you never want to offend)
    Re: The batter bowl....
    I say....
    This bowl is perfect for the college student leaving home. It's the 24-hour bowl....
    Cheerios for breakfast
    Top Ramen Noodles for lunch
    Mac n Cheese for dinner
    Beer mug for dessert! (As much as we hate to admit it, they're doing it!)
