From Tina who works at The Good Cooking Store with me.
I love to bake bread. I originally learned how to bake from my Grandma. I grew up watching her bake her own bread and remember waiting with very little patience until the bread was cooled enough to cut and eat.
When it was finally my turn to learn to bake, Grandma carefully walked me through all of the steps… from understanding the right consistency of the dough to kneading the bread. She taught me that it was important to have an extra cup of flour scooped from the container for dusting the countertop while I was kneading. This was a good practice, though I would often find that my doughy fingers stuck to the flour when I was trying to add more to the kneading surface. I found myself throwing away the reserve flour because it had been touched by the dough.
I also use this duster to decorate cakes and sweet treats with powdered sugar.
Such a simple tool that helps so much!
