Cakes Baked in Eggshells

Last week, we scrambled eggs inside eggshells, but this week we take it up a notch. Yolks and whites, scrambled or not, are simply not as exciting as chocolate cake. Imagine hunting for these instead? I can't really think of anything better -- other than solid gold, that is.

It turns out that eggshells are the perfect receptacle for cake. Just large enough for a couple of bites, it keeps the cake super-moist for several days. You can even decorate the shells afterward with Sharpies for an extra special treat.
