However, only experienced chefs know the amount of precision and finesse that each preparation demands. One commonly experienced problem by bakers is that butter is often hard in texture due to being refrigerated, and therefore is tough to work with. Butter is used in a number of dishes, and this viral baking hack has found a way out of this dilemma. Take a look:
