That's not baking people...it's mixing.

 

Sorry I just got to this but I wanted to do it earlier....

Yes, definitely, this thread is getting weird. Since when is this "NAIL_POLISH-L"?

 

(Keep in mind, though, that on the rare occasions when I wear sandals, I wear them with loud socks. Usually argyle, but not always: I also have some with little fishies and little birdies, and so forth, bought in preparation for my two [to date] Hawaiian vacations. It's a fashion statement, one that grabs the world by the lapels, and screams in its face, "You bet your Equus asinius I'm wearing socks; you got a problem with that?")

I just recently had someone tell me that the cupcakes I made were "awesome," but that she personally "adds jello so they stay moist."  Now I'm wondering if she actually meant pudding and not Jello-Jello...(In defense of my cupcakes, they had been sitting out for over 24 hours uncovered before this person broke down and ate one of the last ones left, and I had no previous complaints about dryness).

 

P.S. Sorry for the usage for the word "moist" ;)

Thank you all so much, ladies and gentlemen, for your contributions to this thread!  I've spent the day reading it on my breaks from forking over the garden and I haven't laughed so much in a very long time.  icon_biggrin.gif

 

I know I'm in trouble when I'm told a sentence that starts, "Can't you just...."  I bake for family and for fun, so I don't have to deal with what most of you are, but my MIL takes, well, the cake.

 

Phone rings.  Me: Hello?

MIL: Oh, honey!  I've got a group coming over to play *card/dice game of the moment* and I didn't get anything for dessert.  Could you help me out?

Me: Sure!  What were you thinking of having?

MIL: That orange chiffon cake.  I just love that!

Me: All righty.  When did you need it.

MIL: Today.

Me: (mildly boggling)  Um....what time?

MIL: In an hour.

Me: (seriously boggling) Uh, Mum?  I'm about out of butter and eggs and I don't have any oranges.

MIL: Can't you (those magic danger words) just go to the store?

Me: Yeah, but it takes 20 minutes to get there, another 20 back and, forgetting about how long it'll take to run through the store and check out, that's 40 minutes.  There isn't enough time.

MIL: Hm.  You're right.  Can't you just use frozen orange juice?

Me: Possibly.  If I had any.  Which I don't.  And I use orange rind in the cake and the frosting.

MIL: You really don't need that much butter!  Can't you just use shortening?

Me: Not really.  I don't make buttercream frosting with shortening.

MIL: And the eggs...can't you just use more oil or something?  They do on those cooking shows.

Me: I...really don't think that's going to work for a cake that's held up with stiffly beaten egg whites.  You kinda need those.

MIL: Can't you just make the batter into cupcakes, then?

Me: .......

 

There's more.  I'll spare you, but I really hate the words, "Can't you just...."  Hate 'em.  (Still laughing over the words "moist" and "clean and modern!" and the movie.  "Get out" is still my favoritest line!)

Sorry Hon but she had you Pegged from the start.  This was her plan from the beginning.......................to screw you and get something for nothing by complaining.  PLEASE people, listen to that little voice in your head that is jumping up and down yelling NO!!!!!!!  DON'T TAKE THIS ORDER.  You'll never regret taking that little voices advice.

Just got this e-mail tonight:

 

Hi! My name is ______ My family and I were looking for someone who could do a specialty pirate cake for my stepson for his birthday in May. Actually we need it next weekend on May 4th. We would probably want a sheet cake to feed maybe 30- 35. Unfortunately, we have limited funds and a tight budget. My friend ________ highly recommended you. I was just wondering if you might have availability and if you could give me some info? Thank you very much for your time.

 

These kind of emails make me want to blast back ARE YOU SERIOUS! She wants a specialty Pirate ship AND a Sheet cake to feed 30-35 BUT has NO budget!  oh and needs it in a WEEK

 

AHHHH

I read this as them wanting a sheet cake with a pirate theme on it.  I don't see anything in the email about a ship.

I'd read that the same way...I'd tellhehr to go get a Costco sheet cake, buy some gold candy coins at CVS, a pirate chest from the pet store fish tank section, and decorate that sucker up.
