Slowest Day on the Board EVER
« on: May 14, 2008, 04:01:17 PM »
Does anyone else feel, especially the regulars, feel like this day is the slowest in a while for board activity?!  Work sort of slowed down so I've been spending more time on the board, but there's really nothing new.  I wonder how this day breaks down statistically.

Yes, it is totally strange:  I posted a couple of items this afternoon and none are posted now.  Something is very wrong.

You and that dog guy who likes dead cats. That's who sick.

Cake eaters are more interesting and much more intelligent than pie eaters. Pie eaters tend to be dull and boring.

I've had this argument before.  There are meat based pies.  While I have made meat cupcakes a meat cake is little more than a novelty.  Pies win by default.

Meat-based pies are simply a food substitute sorta like Kraft American cheese-food slices. And who are you kidding with meat cupcakes. There is no such thing. Pies are crusty. Cakes are tasty. Pies are mostly filling. Cakes are frosted with icings that melt in your mouth. Pies are the default only when there is no cake to eat. CAKES RULE! Think of it like this: if a PC were a pie, and a cake were a Mac, why would anyone want a pie?

wait wait wait. Not to get all serious, but doesn't it depend on the pie and the cake? I personally can't stand frosting, but give me a Black Forest cake with real sour cherries or a key lime pie or a peach cobbler (still a pie!) and well, I'd have to eat them ALLL!!!   :evil: :-P :lol: :-o :-D

So, it does appear that the server is running "backwards". But the support guys haven't figured out what's going on yet. So more posts may disappear just so you all know. I'll post a status update once I hear back from them.

This doesn't even make sense.  Neither Shepherd's nor Pot are "food substitues" as you say.  Additionally, Australia has a version of a meat pie, which is considerably less common in the United States (but available if you know where to look)

And who are you kidding with meat cupcakes. There is no such thing.

1) there is such a thing, and apparently I'm not the only one that has made them (although I iced mine with Mashed potatoes):http://www.dauwalder.net/MeatCupcakes/
and there has also been a storied meat cake: http://www.blackwidowbakery.com/demo/meatcake/
but as I said they're novelty, not common dishes. 

Pies are mostly filling. Cakes are frosted with icings that melt in your mouth. Pies are the default only when there is no cake to eat. CAKES RULE! Think of it like this: if a PC were a pie, and a cake were a Mac, why would anyone want a pie?

Pies offer, when done right, a savory element to contrast the sweet filling.  Cakes on the other hand, are simply layers of sweet, there's no complexity afforded to cake eaters.

what about pie-cake or cake-pie. I merged them once for a baking contest and it acutally came out pretty good. the sheer caloric volume prevents me from making it again. Mostly because I'll eat it.  :evil:

Graham Cracker/Shortbread crust with pudding pie filling. Let that bad boy set in the fridge.
Bake an angel food cake in a 9inch round cake pan. Once cooled slice it in half so that it's still 9inches, just not as thick. Place that on top of your set pudding pie and then add frosting and curled pieces of chocolate.

Proceed to devour about 1000 calories.

Holy god, I think I want one.

As long as some people pass off ice-cream-in-the-shape-of-a-cake as ice cream cake, it should and will be kept out of the conversation.  Ice cream cake is one layer of cake, topped with one equal layer of ice cream.  Alternately, it can be that twisty thing that used to be popular but I haven't seen it since probably before you were born, but damn it was good.  Chocolate cake twisted around vanilla ice cream.  BTW, you were born a triped.

If you make it . . . they will come.

Ice cream cake is one layer of cake, topped with one equal layer of ice cream. 
Not when I make it. I use a delicious pound cake sliced lengthwise into three equal layers. Top the first layer with macerated raspberries and softened chocolate ice cream; place on the second pound cake layer and top with 3 very thin sheets of melted dark chocolate and slightly softened raspberry sorbet; after placing on the third pound cake layer place the whole thing in the freezer for 1–2 hours; remove and cover the whole cake with fresh,  sweetened whipped cream and serve in thin slices immediately. And I am not, nor have I ever have been a tripod.
