Homemade Macro flash defuser

Not exactly homemade, but something I discovered. If you've ever bought the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, there is a translucent plastic container that the icing comes in. After I enjoyed a freshly baked cinnamon roll, okay okay I had two, I cleaned the plastic container. I simply placed it on top of the camera and started testing. The results were pretty good, considering I spent no money and no time to construct.

I didn't set up a tripod so they are not the sharpest, my main objective was exposure. I used spot metering an all macros in program mode. I used Sony DSC-F717 Macro mode with no addional close-up lens.

Here are some pictures.
