Excuse me? GURNISH your mulled merlot with cinnamon sticks? GURNISH? It's garnish you blonde dolt!
Just had to get that off my chest. I'm new here, but loving the snark fest that is Semi-Ho's TTWP forum.
What freaks me out about this episode is this. If you are so busy that you need to cut corners in preparing desserts to serve - then why take the time and money to buy an angel cake, frosting, coconut flakes, food dye - then drive over to an arts/crafts shop to pick up faul pearls, a star, kwanza candles and other crap only to haul it to your kitchen to redo all the ingredients which will not only take up money - but time in our busy schedules? I'd rather just buy a cake at the bakery! They do all the work...I don't get the fuss. If I wanted something homemade - I'd just find the time to do it from scratch...it's more satisfying, and at least I know I put aside the time.
And sugaring fruit. Geeez, lets take nature's good, wholesome source, and ruin it with refined sugar. Man, I hope that is only to "gurnish" the table....and not for consumption. There is enough sugar on the buffet board to kill every diabetic in the USA.
