1. Cool your cakes upside-down so the tops are flat and easier to frost and stack.

2. Easily create a heart-shaped cake using one round cake pan and one square pan.

3. Frost brownies upside-down on their smoother, less flaky sides. So much easier!

4. Use metal tongs to crimp the edges of your pie crust in a pretty, even pattern.

5. Make delicious homemade whipped cream in three simple steps.

6. Make a sandwich with your cupcake for the perfect frosting-to-cake ratio (and never get frosting on your nose again).

7. Use a cookie cutter and Funfetti® candy bits to create fun shapes on the top of your cake.

8. Use Crisco® No-Stick Cooking Spray on your cookie scoop for easy scooping and cleanup.

9. No piping bag? No problem! Cut and fold parchment paper for a DIY frosting bag.

10. Coat chocolate chips or other cake add-ins with flour before adding to the batter so they don't sink to the bottom while baking.

11. Cut a hole in your cupcake and fill it with frosting for a sweet inside surprise.
