How to store tomatoes:

Don't store tomatoes in plastic bags! The trapped ethylene will make them ripen faster.

Unripe tomatoes should be kept stem side down, in a paper bag or single layer in a cardboard box in a cool area until they turn red in color. To ripen faster, store with fruit. The gases emitted will help ripen the tomatoes.

Perfectly ripe tomatoes should be kept at room temperature, on the counter away from sunlight, in a single layer, not touching one another, stem side up.

Overly ripe tomatoes should be put in the fridge, but let them come to room temperature before eating them.

How to Make Cupcake Candle Holders

The list of ingredients:

moulding plaster
water
empty yoghurt or margarine tub
muffin tin and papers
aluminum foil candle holder thingies
something small to use as weights


  • Mix water with plaster. Estimate the quantity you need, depending on how many cupcakes you want to make. Gently mix it together, you don’t want to create air bubbles. Mix until your ‘batter’ is slightly runny so it will even out when you shake it a bit, but it is not too liquid anymore (think thick yoghurt) or it won’t firm up properly. Just keep adding water, or plaster until you get it right.

  • Fill your cupcake papers. A silicone cupcake ‘tin’ will make removing the cupcakes really easy later (just remember to put it on a tray first, because it is hard to move otherwise). But a regular tin works too.

  • Remember to fill up those papers, because this batter won’t rise. if you fill above the paper you will get a solid band on top (like I have with this batch).

  • Shuffle the tin a bit until the top of the cupcake evens out. Any imperfections you can remove now, will save you sanding time later.

  • Immediately push a candle holder thingie into the batter. Aim for the middle and don’t distort it’s shape. Put something small and heavy in it to keep it down (I used bolts, but heavy marbles would work too).

  • Let fully dry.

  • Remove paper, sand of any imperfections, spray paint with primer, and then spray with the paint color of your choice.

  • I embellished with real cupcake sprinkles. I used Glossy Accents glue to attach the pearls.

One more tip. Leave the tub and spoon to dry! Don’t rinse them out in the sink, because the plaster might clog up your drains. If you leave it to dry fully, you can later just dent the tub (that’s why I recommend something plastic and bendable) and the dried plaster will come loose and you can just put it in the trash and use the tub for your next project.

I have never ever baked a real cupcake, let alone decorated one. So this is in fact my first attempt at decorating baked goods.
