1. Bake a perfect pie crust
Keep the edges of your homemade pies from burning by covering them with strips of aluminium foil.
The foil prevents the edges from getting overdone while the rest of your pie gets perfectly browned.
2. Create special-shaped cake pans
Make a teddy bear birthday cake, a Valentine’s Day heart cake, a Christmas tree cake, or whatever shaped cake the occasion may call for.
Just form a double thickness of heavy-duty aluminium foil into the desired shape inside a large cake pan.
No scrub pad to clean dirty pots and pans? Use aluminium foil as a temporary replacement.
3. Soften up brown sugar
To restore your hardened brown sugar to its former powdery glory, chip off a piece, wrap it in aluminium foil, and bake it in the oven at 300°F (150° C) for five minutes.
Just take it easy with the brown sugar. Added sugar – not natural sugars that exist in fruits and vegetables – is everywhere and getting on top of your intake could be a challenge.
