I <3 this thread.
OH OH I have another one!
Faun-dawnT. Every time I hear someone try and sound like they "know" stuff or at least prove how much they watch the Cake Boss and say "fawn-dawnT" I cringe. I almost want to put a disclaimer on my website - if you contact me about a cake, please don't ask for a moist marble cake covered in fawn-dawnT with icing that isn't sweet in the shape of a woof.
There is NO hard T in French. If you are French you say fawn-don. NO T. The rest of the English speaking world says fon-DANT.
I also hate the word "icing" when it applies to my cake. I don't make "icing". I make buttercream.
