    I volunteered to take care of my cousins 6 kids because their father my uncle was on his death bed. That was about 24 years ago. It was getting onto lunch. I grilled cheese sandwiches on sheet pans. One large sheet pan covered 2 burners. Each end held 4 sandwiches. Big old pot of soup and some Hawaiian punch. Later cupcakes in the flat bottom Ice cream cone filled half way with cake batter. They got to decorate their own cakes. Miss Dixie and Mr Reynolds made a very large contribution in assisting. Flat bottom ice cream cone cups when filled 1/2 - 3/4 way with batter will not spill because of the weight of the batter. You can set them on sheet pans. Just bake as usual according to directions.

    I use Dawn. It's my go to for a lot of things. Another thing since most spills are on the front side of the shirt, flip that area over so the paint runs out the same way it went in. Try not to spread around. If I scrub a small area, I scrub from the backside. Working it out of the fabric not into it.

    I've read that this is dangerous, too, as in can result in a shorting out of the toaster.

    Since my old toaster/wafflemaker bit the dust, I make grill cheese sandwiches in a cast iron skillet. Works great!

    For grilled cheese, you can always do the college cooking thing. Butter your bread on the outside, cheese on the inside, wrap in aluminium foil and iron the package until the bread is toaster.
