236. Rolling Pin Icon
So let's say you have some dough, and it needs to be flattened. What would you use? The first thing that comes to mind is a giant rock. Obviously. But what if you don't have a giant rock handy? Well, then you find yourself an anvil. A nice, smooth, anvil. Or a hairless dog. Or a lollypop covered in sand. Or the feathers of an adolescent duck.
Or a rolling pin, I guess.
Here's some Wikipedia knowledge on the subject:
A rolling pin is a cylindrical food preparation utensil used to shape and flatten dough. Two styles of rolling pins are found; roller and rods. Roller types consists of a thick cylindrical roller with small handles at each end; rod type rolling pins are usually thin tapered batons. Rolling pins of different styles and materials offer advantages over another, as they are used for different tasks in cooking and baking.
