It’s all about spin, says cher John DeShetler. Rub it with a mix of ground pepper, chili powder and garlic, then present as ‘blackened.’ Or slice it up as is and use in stir-fries, salads or fajitas.
Cake that falls apart
Didn’t grease the cake pan and your cake did not slide out easily? Carefully hold the pieces together and use icing as the glue to reconnect it. You may need an assistant to help you hold it still while you “glue” it back, but it will look like a brand-new dessert once you’ve frosted the whole thing.
Cookies that stick to the baking sheet
Sometimes you run out of parchment paper or forget to butter up a baking sheet. If your cookies get stuck and break apart, there’s no need to panic. Use those broken, crumbly cookies as a topping for ice cream, a cookie crumb layer for a cake, or take the broken pieces, dip them in chocolate and tell everyone you planned to make them as a chocolatey cookie dessert.
