cake and ice cream sandwiches . put cake batter into your waffle iron for awesome ice cream sandwiches (recipe calls for cake mix, but I don't use them, so I'd just substitute favorite chocolate cake recipe)
Holiday Center piece Idea - Stretch a rubber band around a cylindrical vase, then stick in candy canes until you can't see the vase. Tie a silky red ribbon to hide the rubber band. Fill with red and white roses or carnations. Pretty centerpiece or gift!
