Baking cupcakes? Try putting a marshmallow on top of the cupcake when it has a minute left in the oven. It will melt wonderfully and create a delicious alternative to frosting.

2. Make whipped cream

Stop wasting your money on pre-made whipped cream. If you have a french press, just add some cream and get your kid to pump it up and down until fluffy.

3. A healthier frozen treat

Put popsicle sticks in watermelon slices and freeze them. They contain a lot less sugar than watermelon flavored ice pops. This also works with peaches and mangos — they won’t freeze totally solid.

4. Make your own cookie cups

Great for ice cream! Just turn your muffin tin upside down and shape the dough around the mounds. Bake until crisp.

Do dessert easily.
