Is it just me or do your cakes taste weird to you too?? icon_confused.gif

Everyone says that they taste so good and they compliment me on them, but for some reason I so don't agree..lol

Maybe it's because I'M the one making it and I know how the icing is made and it seems disgusting to me...lol

I dunno...Maybe I'm just crazy...

thanks for "listening" icon_biggrin.gif

There's no reason to make disgusting icing, just find a type you like. icon_smile.gif

I usually like the way my cakes (and frostings) taste.

I wish I didn't like the tast of my cakes. My bathroom scale wishes I didn't like the taste of my cakes too!

90% of your sense of taste is actually your sense of smell. Therefore, by the time you actually go to taste the cake, food, or whatever you prepare, your palate may just be so numb to the smell that you can't enjoy the taste as much as if someone else had prepared it. This is especially true when you are preparing large quantities of something, or if it is a food whose scent lingers in the house for a day or two (like linguine with white clam sauce - seafood garlic heaven!).

Do you remember ever hearing someone say that something tastes better when it is made by someone else? Now you know why!

wild4cakes -

That was my grandmother, through and through. The kitchen was her domain, and when holidays came, she insisted on doing it all herself.

By the time it came to eat holiday dinners, she was so full of the smells that she had no appetite!

I wonder if I could create a cooking diet - cook all day, then not want to eat. Hummm....
