Today turned into such fun!!
I bought a blowtorch (the sort you use to caramelise creme brulee) from Robin's Kitchen (all torches were $39.99 today - the one I bought felt the most comfortable to hold PLUS it came with 4 ramekins - score!)
I've been trying to experiment with the inside of Pepsi Max cans for a while - in an earlier post I talked about holding the metal above my gas stove - OK result but took forever. The other day I tried to bake it under the grill - absolutely NO result after about 20 minutes...
But today! The blowtorch was perfect. That is, it was perfect once I figured out how to fill it with butane. Confronted with the lid of the can of butane I mentally went "huh?".
Within seconds the can was metamorphosing...
By the way, opening up the can is not for those of you who faint at the sound of nails on blackboards - it is not pleasant,
WARNING - this bit of fun produces a LOT of fumes. I took my kit and caboodle into the yard and finished the process there. With all the rain we've had, I knew that if anything caught fire I could just drop it and the drenched earth would quench the flames.
