When in doubt - follow the recipe!

Yes, lining the pan with foil can make a difference. If you want to line the pan with something - use parchment paper.

Taking jkath's presentation idea one step farther ...

If the recipe says to grease and flour the dish .... use sifted cocoa powder instead of flour.

Re lining the pan w/foil or parchment - I do line with foil, if I'm making a big batch (9x13 pan or larger), and I bring the foil all the way up over the sides of the pan on all 4 sides. Make sure you crimp the foil all the way into the corners of the pan if you do this. The advantage of this method is that you can remove the whole pan of brownies at once, to get even slices.

For what it is worth, when lining a pan with foil, I've better luck puting the pan upside down on the counter and laying the foil on the pan and molding that way. Then I turn the pan upright and put the foil liner in.

Jkath,
Your presentation ideas look great, but I do think a word of caution is in order regarding eating pansies from your garden. Most plants that you buy are not edible, and not meant to use on food. Somewhere along the way, they may have been sprayed with chemicals.

When baking brownies, I use the shortest time (ie 25-33) minutes. Brownies are so easy to overcook and they continue to cook for a bit after removed from the oven. The crusty bits are always good crumbled over ice cream, especially if they have nuts in them.

Here are a few TNT tips for you.
1) place a cookie sheet on a shelf a few inches below the brownie pan, it helps to even the heat.
2) when you cut the brownies, out of pan using a liner is best, experiment to see which you like best, foil or parchment, cut them on a bias. Cut the brownies lengthwise but on the cross cut start the cut a few inches off center. It will give your brownies a great look.
3) Grow your edible flowers from seed. Find a reputable organic dealer for seeds and plants and buy from them. One I have great luck with is www.groworganic.com
