Best part of making a cake. Nowadays I give my son the ‘you shouldn’t be eating raw egg’ line and scoff it all myself. Little tip for you there.


#3

The cake mixture usually tasted better than the resulting cake


#4

nobody ever made cakes when I was a kid :frowning:


#5

Also: cleaning out cake mixture from a bowl was what spatulas were made for


#6

make one bammers and try it


#7

In a damning indictment of how much I was an irritating child…when making cakes at my friend’s house I told his mum off for offering us the mixture to eat.


#8

work once did this weird creepy thing where the boss had a “competition” where everyone had to make a cake and he would judge and award a winner.

I had never made a cake before, made a cheesecake and won!

mate come on!


#12

so the internet tells me

With a minor change in appearance, any pastry that is a crumb crust filled with custard and baked, in my mind, is a pie. The addition of cream cheese is no more a disqualifier than the addition of bourbon would be. So, in short, a cheesecake is a pie


#13

“next weeks competition is to clean a room in my house.”


#14

I think everybody got to eat the cakes but it was weird the whole “I will decide whose is best” thing


#15

Already on it.


#16

Are you baking it or not? You can make cheesecakes that just set it in the fridge but I think some need to go in the oven.


#17

I think they did, but I don’t think I often asked for it, because cake batter is Not Very Nice hashtagbigopinions.

What I do remember though, is when my mum made biscuits (which she seemed to do more often than make cakes), she would use the last little scrap of dough to make a tiny biscuit which was “Rabbit’s biscuit” (Rabbit being my favourite toy), which, actually, was my extra biscuit. I once pointed out Rabbit didn’t have a mouth to eat his biscuit and my mum stitched him one. Mum’s are great.

mate

a cake is made from cake mix

I also bake potatoes but a cake they are not (except potato cakes and actually no they arent either)


#19

just sounds like a bit of work place fun to me.


#20

yeah probably was but I can’t help but think maybe it was an authority/power thing that he enjoyed
