WFMW- Floss- not just for teeth!


My WFMW tip is one that I use for cakes. 

     When I am making cakes for someone I have to trim off the extra muffin top that rises above the rim of my pan. 

There are contraptions you can buy or really long knives but the easiest and cheapest is non-flavored dental floss. 

Just take out enough to go across the width of the pan and wrap around your index fingers. 

Now put the floss on the side where the cake needs to be trimmed and pull towards you. 

It slices through very easily and leaves a nice, smooth surface. 

That is my tip for today.  Have one?  Need one?  Head over to Rocks in My Dryer!

I just have to add a link to the coolest WFMW tip!!!  She so deserves the MacGyver award!!!!  Click to read her awesomeness.  She has even included pictures!
