Aluminum foil is a staple in many households and we all use it when baking in the oven. It’s a favourite amongst those trying to avoid washing the baking sheets every time they use one. But did you know that tinfoil can actually be used for many other things than just preventing your oven from getting dirty? Here are some of the more unusual and yet very useful ways you can use aluminum foil in your day to day life.
1. DIY Cake Pan
Let’s start in the familiar aluminum foil territory – in the kitchen. If you want to bake a cake that’s not a standard shape, you don’t have to buy a special cake pan just to use it once. You can just use aluminum foil and fold it into a shape that you need.
2. Soften Brown Sugar
If you need brown sugar for baking you know that sometimes it just hardens into lumps that feel as hard as a rock. The best way to soften that sugar is to wrap it in tinfoil and put in the oven on high for 5 minutes. Be careful unwrapping it though, it’ll be hot.
3. Makeshift Piping Bag
If you want to pipe frosting or cream onto a cake or cupcakes but you’ve run out of piping bags don’t rush to cut corners of ziplock bags. You can just fashion aluminum foil into a funnel and then use it as a piping bag.
