    The reason the top half of butter got soft and not the bottom is because heat rises :)

    What if u add a little bit of water with the jello mix first? I feel like adding water to jello always makes the colour super vibrant.

    The jello hack i wish she would of added water or milk to the jello first to help melt the jello and would of probably intensified the colors maybe worth a try

    Well its a marshmallow so yeah it melted. Its not going to be like icing its just a marshmellow

  • Brittney Nechole

    A smaller hack for the butter... it’s a little messier, but you can soften a stick of butter in a food processor.
    Or just use the defrost setting on the microwave.

    For keeping cookies moist I totally recommend a slice of bread 🍞, preferably the ends. It truly works. My sister and I tend to bake chocolate chip cookies 🍪 quite often: keeps them moist and chewy.

    I think the jell-o hack would work if you dissolved the granules in a little bit of hot water maybe?

    Here's. A tip that I use. I use the eggshell to get the eggshell out and it sticks to it no problem.

    u should of taken the marshmellow out when it was still puffy and let it sit for 1 min. it deflates and retains more flavour.

  • KeyStroke
    KeyStroke 28 days ago

    Also, re the Jell-O, it needs water in order to fully dissolve (it's not really fat-soluble) and color or flavor anything. Even a teaspoon would cause your buttercream to split, which isn't good, so I'd suggest perhaps using a stand or immersion mixer.

    BuzzFeed: hack! use an "ice cream" scoop to put batter in the cups for cupcakes
    Trained Culinary Professionals (aka me): we've been using those for years... especially bc they're not ice cream scoops, they're #8 portion scoops...

  • Karen Blackburn
    Karen Blackburn Month ago

    Doesn't everyone use an icing bag for icing? Eggshell removal with the egg shell gates back a century or more. Always works fine. Fill the wine bottle with cold water otherwise you get it too warm, plus you do it with the dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper.

  • Chris Matthews
    Chris Matthews Month ago

    I don't normally bother with piping bags and use ziplocs almost exclusively (though I do use a piping tip with them, still.) Works fine, I always have them on hand, and I can stuff a bunch if I have multiple colors.

  • Gary Hillis
    Gary Hillis Month ago

    I used to break eggs on the counter instead of the side of the bowl 13:18. I had been told that one is less likely to get egg shells in the bowl that way. I really didn't notice a meaningful difference in that regard, I almost never get shell fragments either way, but I don't like egg whites on the counter top.

    For the marshmallow hack you're supposed to do it at the same time as your cooking the cupcakes, so like 5 min before it's done you add the marshmallow. That keeps it from falling off

    Maybe try putting the jello in water and then mixing it with buttercream. Then it would have the same consistency as food coloring. Just a thought.. great channel! :)

    I find if you cut the butter into smaller pieces and put the together under the warm mug, then it works better, as it's a smaller surface per piece and a greater surface area

    I bet if you flipped the Mason jar rims over so that the hole is lifted off the cookie sheet, you wouldn't mind up with such wide, spread out cupcakes because the hole would be supporting the liner.

  • Tina Jackson
    Tina Jackson 2 months ago

    I think the mason jar lid rings were supposed to be turned the other way...I'm just saying, the "rim" would be elevated and smaller that way...much like a cupcake tin.

    I think with the jello hack you should have gone through the process of making the jello then before sticking it in the fridge used the liquid as the dye it would work a lot better and you would get the taste and more color

    hi! another easy way to soften butter is to stick it in the microwave on time defrost for like 30-45 seconds and it will be soft but not melty! you just have to make sure it’s on defrost and not just normal because i’ve definitely accidentally liquified my butter that way

    I made pizza dough last night for dinner and I don’t own a rolling pin. I used a wine bottle that was clean but still had about half the bottle of wine in it and worked very well! I assume because rolling pin are on the heavier side typically that having the wine in there as extra weight is the reason it worked so well. But if I ever need that hack again I will most defiantly will be using it!

  • Xinia Calvo

    I actual use the marshmello technique to make icing for my cakes but, instead of putting it like that , i bain-marie the marshmellos until they are complitely melted.
    Then, i just use them as normal icing and the marshmellos don't become solid again they just stay melted and taste DELICIOUS.

    the Marshmallow hack was a joke however if you made the marshmallow but used less gelatin you could make it into a spread instead of a set marshmallow that way you can spread it on the cupcake other than melting it on and finish with a kitchen blowtorch to toast it. The other thing you can do if you make your own marshmallow is add other flavors I find adding citrus helps cut through the sweetness and using an icing bag is hardly a Hack is it and the bottle hack again hardly a hack just because this is the first time you have heard of it does not make it something new
