        I am getting my daughter an easy bake oven for Christmas and I found this site when looking for inexpensive mixes. I'm THRILLED! But I have a question about this recipe. I love that it makes up several mixes but how do you mix up the individual batches? I'm assuming butter but I'm not sure. thx.

      Re: cleaning automatic dishwasher

      Hey Buddy,

      Easy fix... rinse with vinegar.

      Exact method varies with dishwasher model. I just open mine up and throw in half a cup.
