AAny one have any cake terms or things relating to cake that the sound of grosses you out?

I know moist is a pretty popular one. I myself don't like to think about buttercreams that crust. it makes me think about feet. Crusty feet. I can't myself imagine that to be a desirable quality, but I understand its benefits for decorating and viva towels and such. And I've eaten american butter cream, and its great, just dont like the term crusts.

So what about you? What gives you the heebie jeebies.

ANot a gross out, but I effing HATE the term "double barrel" it is seriously so stupid. Double barrel is two barrels NEXT TO EACH OTHER. Not stacked. I vote to call it a double stack, or if you must use the term barrel, an extended barrel or a long barrel.... Ugh, it seriously goes right through me.

At my old job we always use to label it as lemon crud lol. First one was an accident and then it just stuck.

Haha! I think that too, I call it crud, but think curd is pretty unappetizing as well. Like when Ms. Muffet eats her curds and whey, I just about gag. Sounds soured and curdled and not in a good way!

ACurd sounds off-putting. I hate it when Americans say fon-dont. I met a guy a while back who said it that way, and I kinda cringed.

This cake "feeds" 60 people.......   I picture  people at a trough stuffing themselves with nothing but cake.  I think "serves" 60 people...... sounds a little more refined and accurate as cake is not (usually) an entire meal!

I was introduced to the extended tier as a "double barrel"  but after reading several threads on CC, I will make the effort to change to extended tier.  it's really more accurate.

Whenever I hear someone pronounce fondant that way I always say "I bet you watch Cake Boss" and , amazingly icon_wink.gif, they ALWAYS say yes.

I recall Duff (Ace of Cakes) also says fon-dont. Sounds pretentious.

AI second curd. Terrible. I also roll my eyes when I hear ppl say fon-DAHNT. (Not to their faces obviously). I for one do not even like the taste of the crusted icing. Ever since I was a little girl I hated it. As I've started working the term has started to push a button lol

I agree with this too! I always use serve rather than feed, because I see the giant slabs of cake with people shoving them into their faces, like double portions and larger.

A couple weeks ago someone asked about how many "heads this cake would feed" and I immediately pictured people out in a field on their hands and knees like cattle, eating cake of the ground. Then I thought of disembodied heads lined up on a table, with the tops opened up (like the monkey brains served in skulls on indiana Jones) and someone dropping cake in while the heads chat with other, lol.

Speaking of Cake Boss, I hate it when he "dirty ices" a cake. Even crumb coat sounds better than "dirty ice".

Yes yes yes! Dirty ice makes me think of yellow snow. Or the crud that gets scraped to the end of my driveway by the snow plow/ salt truck.

Agreed.  In the past years,  I have only watched 1 cake show in its entirety because I find them so annoying.  People always ask if I watch cake shows, and I always say "no."  Then I get a blank stare, as in, how can you have talent if you don't watch cake shows?  icon_biggrin.gif

So that's where that came from! I have never seen any of the cake shows. I know they exist, I just have never watched one. When someone once asked me about "dirty icing" a cake I had no idea what they meant and I probably looked horrified! The fawndawnt thing gets me, too. I know now where it came from but the first time I heard it I laughed right out loud at the person who said it! I thought they were joking!

They probably thought they were pronouncing it in French........but they weren't. Kinda reminded me of Martha Stewart and her "marrinod."
