This is a fun idea! Can't wait to try it. I did notice the cake recipe seems to have been cut off though. Only the eggs and butter have been included. Could re recipe, please be reposted?


Just curious about accidentally spilling the dry ice on the cake.  Is there a health risk with a tiny amount of bits that might fall out of the spoon when adding the dry ice to the tubes?
