    if you want to ask a bisexual or asexual person about their sexual history to verify that they’re queer, but you don’t want them to take it the wrong way, try this useful communication technique:

    give them twenty dollars and go away.

     
  4. Can report the cake turned out great despite offhand modifications to the recipe and taking ages to bake. It would have been gross with a third more oil and double the amount of sugar. Thinking back to a red velvet cupcake at Au Bon Pain that was greasier and crammed with more sugar than I had thought possible. (Of course I still ate it, but I don’t want another.)

    Also, I made basic cream cheese frosting (lots of cream cheese, a little butter, vanilla and a little bit of icing sugar, taking care not to make it too sweet so it contrasts the already quite sweet cake), and only later looked at what the actual recipe says… 6 cups of icing sugar flavoured with a little cream cheese and butter, seriously??? Nothing in the history of the universe has ever needed this much sugar.  

    I got the credit card issue sorted with the bank, now waiting to be able to confirm it in PayPal, then can pay for some things I’ve been delaying.

    Asked my boss, can have an old PC from the office to hopefully help us out till we can afford a new one.

    More black velvet than red, but hey, no bug pigments.

  7. Attempt 1 at making red velvet cake on the occasion of boyf’s birthday. Clearly more of a dark brown velvet cake tbh, because I added much more cocoa powder than the meagre spoonful suggested by the recipe, and also I know red food colouring tends to be made of bugs, and the only variety I found in the supermarket was exactly that, so I substituted it with some finely grated boiled beet, but it doesn’t seem to have much lasting power once heated. Also cut back on the oil and the frankly ridiculous amount of sugar in the American recipe (nearly twice as much as I’d normally use for the same amount of batter, what is wrong with you, people?). Had to make do with one 20 cm cake tin instead of two, thankfully it is quite deep, so I cut everything down by 25% to make sure it fits - it did, but then it took twice as long to bake. Tiresome.

    Now waiting for it to cool so I can frost it to hell and back with copious amounts of cream cheese.

    Poor boyf is having a crap, stressed out birthday because his desktop pc died yesterday and none of the usual fixes and substitutions are working. Looks like the motherboard is history. And neither of us can afford the expense of replacing it, not now, probably not till the end of the year.

  10. I’m having such fond memories of some kind of a desserts only restaurant place in Boston, and getting a crème brûlée, which was SERVED IN A SOUP PLATE, a soup plate full of crème brûlée with fistfuls of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
