Some Might Call Them Sculpted
I usually don't watch random online videos. I find them annoying. I hate the time it takes to load and the "buffering", whatever that is. Give me the written word everytime and I'm happy. However, sometimes I make an exception.
Rachel brought this "recipe" to my attention. I should wait until December, but I can't...it's just too good. It's Sandra Lee's Kwanzaa Cake and it's vintage Sandy. Watch here.
It is hilarious and really awful - from the combination of the spongy, squooshy angel food supermarket cake and the canned icing (which is actually the best ingredient... given the others) to the canned pie filling, which is the final coup de grâce.
The best part is when she jams the Kwanzaa candles, which are big, into the top of the angel food cake (who puts candles, much less 1/2 inch thick ones, into an angel food cake?) and you wait to see them fall over. Strangely, they don't... not even when she cuts into the cake and it momentarily squishes down like a pillow and then bounces back up.
One more thing - are you really supposed to EAT the acorns (?!) that she douses on at the end? Another great one, Aunt Sandy!
Who doesn't love Iron Chef Japan? Next week on the Fine Living Network, they're featuring Attack of the Vegetables with the Iron Chefs doing all kinds of exotic things with vegetables. Hold on, that sounds wrong...TO vegetables is better. What I REALLY would like to see is the vegetables fighting back and attacking the Iron Chefs.
