The Quran is a manual for living a fulfilling life in peace and harmony. Some people take it too literally without understanding the wisdom behind the words. Alcohol is prohibited because, when consumed in high doses it alters rational thinking. If it's taken literally, only alcohol needs to be avoided- is it then ok to have your cakes flavored with maybe cocaine or marijuana? God has also given us the ability to think......I don't condone people who drink(those who are...
Yes you can. Just make sure the cake you are applying the collar to is well chilled before and freeze it after - like texas sugar said. I used parchment paper and freezing the cake made for a cleaner removal of the parchment paper.
Interesting - this would be my first topsy turvy and I hadn't even thought of how to price it. Thanks Leily!
I was just about to start a new topic on this - hope someone replies to this.
