Bake marbles at 325-350 degrees for 20 minutes (for more cracking-look, bake at 500 degrees for 30 minutes). Remove and carefully drop into pan with ice and water. Glue end caps to finished marble (w/starter rings) to create bracelets, earrings, pendants, ornaments...(unique and great gift idea)
Stained Glass Cake Stand. Fill the bottom of a 12" cake pan with CHEAP, plastic, transparent pony beads. Baked them in a 425 degree oven for 30-40 minutes until all the beads had melted. Let the pan cool for 20 minutes, then flip the melted bead 'plate' out Finally, I glued it to a dollar store candle stick and, presto! Cake stand!
