That’s a beatiful blue jay!
btw...I like all your Pres. B. pic contributions!
Thanks, they’re perfect
Thank you snugs - I think it’s my prettiest toaster yet.
Thanks Wolfie, made the mistake of arguing with the immigration hatemongers. What a mistake. Now I am the second most hated man on FR, but that keeps me in good company. This is a great port in the storm.
We have a good and decent man as President who doesn’t deserve their backstabbing.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Nice way to start the day...thanks for the ping. ;-)
In case anyone missed the story of Lt Bush’s revolver, here is a quick synopsis.
When he was rescued by a submarine, he shared a bunk with an officer of the sub. You can just imagine how cramped a WWII era sub was.
So Bush gave him the revolver as a thank you. For years all that the descendants of this man knew was that the downed pilot was a very nice guy - funny and pleasant to have aboard.
When they decided to return it to President Bush, he chose to give it to the museum.
OK, it wasn’t the BEST CAKE I’ve had, but it was EASY, and tasty, but I had never put jam/cream on a cake before, so that was my point in making it. The sponge receipes I have take a smidge more effort, and before I put forth said effort, I wanted to give it a test.
I’ve always slathered cake with sugar-y icing and the jam/cream on the Green’s box just looked so good - and so English. So I bought it, tried it, loved it.
In fact, it may have made a convert out of me. I liked the nekkid cake (no icing)!
I was intending to spread the icing you sent me on it (marzipan), but didn’t use it. The jam/cream looked so tasty. But didn’t you say you use BOTH - marzipan and jam?
Many thanks for the Fred Barnes article. It certainly is a change to start the week reading a summary of positive news about Republicans! Perhaps the sound of closing wallets and checkbooks across the fruited plain finally got the attention of elected Republicans and gave them a bit of strength to stand up to the Dems.
Icing is more for a celebration cake such as a birthday cake in Britain, it used to be only used on fruit cake but more people seem to prefer sponge cake so nowadays sponge birthday cakes get iced either with Royal Icing, Icing Sugar and egg white or fondant icing like I sent you. Marzipan is used with fruit cake and then the fondant or royal icing goes on top of that.
What you can also do with the fondant icing is make a square shape sponge cake either with the Greens mix or from scratch, cut in half and sandwich together with jam and put icing on the top, cut into squares with maybe a cherry or chocolate chip, jelly candy (we have some in the shape of lemon and orange slices which look nice on a cake) etc on each square.
Most of our sponge cakes though are served naked as you put it which I prefer rather than loads frosting or icing on them. I think they are rich enough without anything added and also I think that too much sweet topping spoils the delicate taste of the cake.
A fatless sponge cake I do normally put butter icing or fondant icing over though as this is drier and not as rich. Not sure if there is a recipe for this in the book I sent you but there is in my mum’s food processor book, I will look that out and freep you it tonight.
Glad to see your Dad is getting about a little now. In time he will be back to normal let us pray.
