Also: powdered sugar helps keep speed the whipping process and keeps the cream stiffer for longer.
I never considered this. Will it help it keep more than a day or two without getting runny?
It never sticks around long enough to find out.
Yes. I threw out some a day or two ago from Thanksgiving that was still as stiff as when it was made.
I guess I'll have to run experiments. A series of experiments, with controls, different cakes and puddings, portion sizes, amounts of sugar, and so forth.
BEST SCIENCE. :D
(Or, you know, just make ice cream).
Fox News flash:
BIDEN CHOOSES WHOLE WHEAT, DECLARES WAR ON WONDER BREAD
Frosting on cake, ice cream on pie, hot fudge on ice cream... nothing wrong with a bit of sweet on sweet.
Yeah, isn't that the whole point of a dessert? Forbidding sweet on sweet is weirdo talk.
By the way, it's worth pointing out that Joe "Goddamn Vice President" Biden is selecting a motherfucking PIE to help provide him energy to lead our great nation, not some communist bullshit cake. Haters gonna hate.
So now you're going to politicize the issue? For shame.
You know who else likes cake? I REPORT, YOU DECIDE.
Truly, truly incriminating. The cake apologists should be out in full force now.
And who bakes MULTIPLE pies?
HAW, HAW, HAW!
That's a shop. I can tell from the pixels and having seen some shops in my time.
Let me get my whiteboard and I'll break it down for you.
Wedding cake is terrible, and fondant is a travesty against humanity.
Which is why our reception had a cheesecake bar.
The ONLY time that cake wins over pie (for me) is in the case of pumpkin. I much prefer pumpkin cake rolls over pumpkin pie.
Also, pie a la mode = heaven, cake + ice cream = mushy, soggy cake.
This post was written while eating pie.
If you have as much money as Biden and are buying $6 pies from Costco, I can't really trust your opinion.
If you've only ever had wedding cake with fondant, no wonder you've been brainwashed by the pie faction. Have some good wedding cake with buttercream frosting and everything will be all right.
I've never had wedding cake with fondant, actually. The only 'wedding cake' I've liked were actually cupcakes, and in no way actually resembled wedding cake. They were chocolate with peanut butter frosting.
I've had other "special occasion" cake with fondant though. Ugh.
Also it should be noted that we technically did have a 'wedding cake' (it was a sheet cake from walmart or something I think, purchased at the insistence of my father), and no one ate it.
Not all wedding cakes are bad: when I got married, I made sure that my cake was excellent -- it was a marbled cake with tiramisu filling, and buttercream frosting in a pretty basketweave pattern. The cake was only two small tiers, but there were also sheet cakes for the other guests. It was goooood, and everyone commented on how it was one of the better wedding cakes they'd had.
I do have to agree that fondant is a travesty, and is not tasty, and annoyingly trendy. Buttercream or death!
My wedding cakes were ice cream for the first (PIE BITCHES!!) and cup cakes for the second. Clearly I'm awesome at picking wedding cakes.
*sigh* I had no choice in the matter and got cake with raspberry filling. Result -- I couldn't even eat my own wedding cake.
Why is that, some allergy to raspberries?
I don't like fruit.
Hubby just came home for lunch and chastised me for eating the last slice of pie, because he wanted it.
This kind of thing doesn't happen about cake. Just sayin'.
So why did you agree to it? Sounds like you should have been more involved in planning your wedding or your wife was some sort of bridezilla.
My wife is nothing of the sort. Her mother, however, is Mothra, and the reception menu ended up under the heading of "things we're not going to go to war over."
Ah, I can understand that. Picking your battles is definitely an important skill and one I could probably be better at.
I know. I've spoken to you in the Walking Dead thread, remember?
Couldn't resist, sorry. No harm intended.
I have no regrets about that thread. Different people just see it differently.
At the risk of de-railing this fine dessert thread, did last night's episode change your views of the Governor? You can explain in the show thread if you like. Everyone's hating on the episode anyway.
I haven't seen it yet so I've been avoiding the thread. Though I did stumble in there but quickly realized and bailed. It appeared as though someone didn't much care for the episode but I stopped reading before any specifics. This saddens me as I was enjoying the season much more than last year, still had some significant issues though. Not sure I'll get to it tonight as I have fencing practice.
While I much prefer pie, I have to admit that pineapple upside-down cake is FUCKING AWESOME.
Your reception wins.
BEST POST EVAR
I'd never say that all pie is bad, just most of it.
I'm not going to turn down a lovely slice of carrot cake with a good cream cheese frosting, for example. I know of know 'carrot cream cheese pie' alternative to that yet, and until I do, that little niche is filled with a cake.
I thought you must be wrong, but I did a Google image search for carrot pie, and yeah. None of them look appetizing.
That's because desserts featuring vegetables are an abomination.
Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Pie beg to differ.
I loves me some punkin pie
