things used for things they weren't really meant for.. got any habits?
Here are some things saran wrap/kitchen wrap/cling film whatever you want to call it can do:
• when spreading dough in a cake form, just put in the dough and put a sheet of the wrap over the form, and simply use fingers to spread the dough, then peel off the wrap.
• similar to above; put dough between to layers of wrap, roll it out or whatever you want to do with it.. then peel off the top layer, use the bottom layer to move the whole thing in one piece without damaging it, flip it onto the cake or whatever, then peel off. My mom does this and loves it. no need for extra flour.
• put wrap over/in a cup, crack egg into cup and therefore into the wrap, seal wrap around egg (leaving some air in it) with a knot or clip/whatever, and boil the whole thing while turning it to make a poached egg that actually stays in one piece. (the problem then becomes getting it *out* in one piece. maybe adding a bit of olive oil to the wrap first might've helped me there)
also, my dad uses one of those long flat salmon knives to cut cakes in half (ie through their centre horizontally) so that layers of filling can be added.
I hope at least some of these are things that you haven't heard of already and that my first thread doesn't sound completely stupid...
