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!
Did this for a baby shower today. Just one letter not words. Really cute. Froze them but in a few minutes they do start to get hard to pull off without breaking. I made double what I needed and I was glad i did.
