How do I measure out butter or margarine without having to count it out in tablespoons?

Gwen - from Vanier, Ontario, Canada

Stick butter and margarine (which you should be using for baking and cake decorating) has markings on the stick which show you how much a tablespoon is. Each stick equals 8 tablespoons.
