Turn a crumpled cake into tasty cake pops!
Use a food processor to grind the cookies into crumbs and add butter to make them sticky. Press the mixture into a pie pan with a rubber spatula. Stick it in the fridge to chill, then fill it with pudding to make an extra chocolatey pie!
No more wonky cake layers.
Add enough icing that the cake is moist and holds form. Use an ice cream scoop to make equally-sized balls and roll them in your hands until they're smooth. Dip the skewers in melted white chocolate before spearing the balls so they stay in place. Let them chill in the fridge before dipping them into white chocolate and decorating with sprinkles.
Use a knife to cut the top and bottom off of the can and mold it into your preferred shape. Works perfectly!
Tightly wrap the tin foil around three sides and then fold the fourth down. Line the foil with parchment paper before pouring the batter.
Bake at 350F for 25 minutes. Yuuum.
Use a clothespin to hold the towel in place. This trick will also make sure the edges are nice and crisp and don't stick!
Some of these options will even make your recipe healthier!
Yay for vegan cookies and cakes!
First, cut a square the size of the pan. Fold it in half twice, fold the opposite corners together, and fold that triangle in half. Line the point up with the center and make a round cut where the wide side of the paper meets the lip of the pan.
Cut a semi-circle off of the bag if you want to get a thicker stripe.
Just like new!
Mix sugar into the sour cream and then spread it all over the top of your cheesecake. Drop a few globs of jam on the sour cream and drag a skewer back and forth across the surface to mix the two together. Put the cheesecake back in the oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees and then let it chill in the fridge overnight. So pretty, and so delish.
Under-cooked cupcakes can be...underwhelming. Stick a cupcake at the bottom of the jar and then add a layer of frosting and sprinkles. Keep stacking until you've filled the jar.
Weigh the can down with uncooked rice, pour the cake batter around it, and bake.
Bake at 350F for six minutes so the marshmallows brown, but don't burn.
Flour may leave a white film on a dark cake — plus, the cocoa powder will add just a dash of extra flavor!
It's the same thing, just a different consistency!
Cover the mixture and let it sit at room temperature overnight. Then, shape it into a ball, and score the top. Wrap the dough in parchment paper, stick it in a preheated dutch oven, and bake it for 30 minutes. If you're leaving the dough uncovered, only leave it in the oven for 15 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
It'll be extra moist!
