Wow, this was an entertaining thread that didn't have anything much to do about the original post
(which by the way I can't even answer because I have no idea due to my lack of skills)
But, in an effort to join in on the fun, here....I don't think we should dissect Martha. She has an image that people just can't wait to find fault with. And yes, that happens when your claim to fame hinges on being perfect on what you do. Whatever you say, she is VERY talented in MANY areas. I would be happy if I could be a perfect cook and baker. Never mind organizing my house and landscaping my garden and making my own wrapping paper after color coordinating my office.
Yeah, she has a staff, but guess what...she knows what she's doing. And she is an amazing woman.
And guess what, it is not the world's job to keep up with U.S. pop culture, or its celebrities...tackling our politics is amusing enough. So, no, it's not so unheard of that someone doesn't have any knowledge of, or care about for that matter, an American icon. How many foreign celebrities do we know well???
Okay, so, back to cakes...has anyone tried Martha's hot milk cake. I see it has a great rating, but I'm curious on some comments.
Edited for spelling
