Yes it was anxious, you should of seen how they looked at me as I was putting them in the microwave but I knew it was for the best. I experimented with one just to make sure. It was good seeing them stood up inside as they rotated round their colour coming through.
And, what wattage was your microwave? I've been meaning to try something similar with one of my full-color models, but I know my microwave is a little bit lower-powered than the average one...When in doubt... Duct tape!
