5 More Uses for Spaghetti!
Use # 2: A strand of spaghetti makes an excellent cookbook book mark. We were in the Cook'n Magazine's test kitchen and found this out by accident as well. We needed a bookmark fast, and there was the lowly unsuspecting spaghetti, just laying there waiting to be given another job!
Use # 4: Spaghetti strands do just fine in cake testing, so if you run out of toothpicks, it's no big deal!
Use # 5: We use broken spaghetti strands to preserve our frosting job when transporting iced cakes. We poke a few pieces into the tops and sides of our cake and cover the whole thing in plastic wrap. When we arrive, we remove the plastic and spaghetti, and no one's the wiser.
So how cool is this? Unsuspecting spaghetti can do so much more than provide the base for a popular pasta dish! If you have other ideas, please share them. We're all in this together, remember. Until next time, then, here's to family dinner made easy as we put the 'ol spaghetti strand to work!
