One of the coolest baking tips ever... Tried and true... If you need to soften butter quickly but don't want to melt it.... Put boiling hot water in a glass to heat the glass. Dump the water out and flip it over your stick of butter. In a few minutes it will be soft to use!
Great recipe for A Hungry Frog-Shaped Melon Bowl Dessert. Since I bought a melon baller at a 100 yen shop, I wanted to come up with a way to use it! If you're having a hard time making the eyes and the hands, it might be easier if you shave down the flesh to make the rind thinner, and if you use kitchen shears to cut the parts out. You could add not just fruits, but also kanten (agar), for example, and it would look pretty and refreshing! Recipe by gigaco
