Baking is fun, and eating your creations is even better, but that doesn’t mean it’s not time-consuming and messy! With these hacks you can make baking easier and more enjoyable.

1. Soften the brown sugar

Haven’t used your brown sugar in a while and pull it out of the pantry to find it hard as a rock? Microwave it with a wet paper towel for 20-30 seconds and it’ll loosen right up.

2. Salvage your hockey pucks

Burned the bottom of your cookies or cupcakes? Don’t toss them! Simply use a microplane zester to shave off just the burnt part.

3. From stiff to spreadable

Don’t have time to wait for that butter or cream cheese to soften? Turn on a heating pad, place a thin dish towel over it and then place your butter or cheese on the covered pad. It will soften in minutes.
