Fondant vs buttercream expectations - Page 4

post #46 of 63

BIG coffee drinker here. Favorite Christmas present this year? A bag of Kona Coffee from Hawaii in the mailbox every other month. If that's not what is brewing, it's Dunkin Donuts. I have to buy about 6 giant bags a month from Sam's Club. It's my vice.

Well, all good things must come to an end sometimes. Hey, is that a cake?

There are some of those ice cream places here too, I've seen them on Food Network. I don't think I'll be visiting any of them anytime soon, but it is my mission in life to try a salty pimp next time I'm in NYC

I just have to say, no fricken way! I barely worked up enough nerve to taste my own, and when I babysat, I didn't touch the mother's milk I was given, just thawed it in warm water, and gave it to baby. I used a paper towel to wash the bottle, since I didn't even want it on my family's dish rag, lol! 

 

BTW, I am all for breast feeding babies, I nursed my twins 12 months, my daughter 18 months, and my last son 26 months. Yes, that is 2 years 2 months. And he is 4 (this month) and has never been sick besides a sniffle or two. He has thrown up about 3 times in his life.

I don't blame you! It was a single drop, it was on a dare, and I used to do just about anything on a dare, I even ate a lighting bug, once. NASTY, bitter, horrible little bug! The breast milk nearly killed me to try it, lol.

I LOVE Dunkin' Donuts, that is what we get, we switch between the regular and French Vanilla. DH drinks it black, but I use cream and sugar. I think it is what is making me fat, since I eat healthyish, and get a little exercise, here and there... ! I drink 2-5 cups a day, good and STRONG! We buy a giant bag a week.

Fondant is not an American custom. So I can appreciate if it is alien to many along with the taste. It is a European and particularly a British custom as we really don't do buttercream cakes. It's a rarity if someone specifically asks for a cake in buttercream. We don't have discussions about whether it should be eaten - it gets eaten as part of the cake. And our cakes are good quality scratch cakes (in the main!). It is not because our cakes "don't taste good". There are of course people that don't like to eat it and as with any other "food" item that is a personal choice. There are people here who can bear buttercream and scrape it all off before eating the cake. I can't think for the life of me who decided that sugarpaste was not meant to be eaten. Considering that sugar craft and sugarpaste are both of British origin and I have never heard that in all my years, and never in all the years I grew up with my mum doing cake, in my opinion it is factually incorrect.

 

In one of my early morning "humorous" moods that most other people don't find humorous.  I can't help but think there is a joke here somewhere...
In the UK, don't you also eat things that have names like "spotted dick"?

Enough said.

Now, I know "someone" will take offense to that, but its a JOKE people!  So don't get your panties all in a bunch over it.   And before the word "dick" gets booted by the moderator...let me say that I'm obviously NOT referring to the male body part, but rather a "food" item eaten primarily in the UK.

 

Takes all the fun out of a joke when you have to "explain" yourself so no one gets all offended about it.

Us brits are well known for our humour, but if we're on the subject of funny food, don't you guys eat that stuff called Crisco-cream? Now THAT is stuff is not meant to be consumed.

Not this Yank! I'd rather have squid ink ice cream than eat that!
