Pete Dared to Invent

Watch as Davison’s Better Way to Invent turns Pete’s Surprise Pan idea into a store-ready reality!

During a brainstorm session for a product that would use a nail to cook a potato from the inside out, Pete came up with an idea for a better cupcake pan. “Why don’t we just push nails right through a muffin pan? Then we’d be able to put something right on that nail; marshmallow or a Snickers bar,” said Pete, which would create a treat with a surprise at its core.
