Good God - seriously   :-X

Is there nothing sacred  :???:

 

Can you imagine the list of ingredients on the back of the can?

It would read like some form of hieroglyphics  found inside some far away pyramid :cry:

With numbers and abbreviations one couldn't decipher

 

I can see it now - the Question will be

 

Do you bake from scratch - packet or from a can? - arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - faint

Really? All that genius and we only get cake in a can? I was hoping that mankind's Harvard intelligence could have been applied to something worthwhile, such as the answer to world peace. (We need world peace way more than we need more cake, right?)

Cazza1: I'd apply straight to my mouth, no pan, no baking, just a shot of batter.   :P

Don't we need cake to help with world peace?  :grin: :cake:

 

And I do agree... I would try it by putting it straight in my mouth... just like whipped cream from a can... :grin:

well food & wine star chef joanne chang says it's good cake -- since it comes out already full of air it microwave cooks in a minute -- no baking soda/powder -- however this is not the only cake to bake w/o baking soda/pwdr -- i hope that's not the message here -- 

 

but the video is private -- phfft

 

here's one:

I think if we fed the whole world good cake we would be a whole lot closer to world peace.  Who could fight with their mouths full of scruptious cake. Who could even think about fighting whilst eating good cake.  Unfortunately I don't think this tinned stuff is going to make the grade.

LoL...

 

I don't use it on my desserts... 

 

I really do prefer the real kind...

 

But occasionally... and especially when I was younger...  I would just spray it from the can into my mouth...  

 

There are places in the world for shortcuts...

 

When in college, I didn't have a mixer in my dorm room... Had to make do...

Like I said... Room in the world for shortcuts...

 

I typically back from scratch... 

 

But most dorms don't have mixers and ovens... Canned whipped cream was an acceptable shortcut... and aerosol cake batter... I would have killed for then... I am sure it microwaves semi decently...

 

though... I will say... our college caf did a pretty good job at keeping the desserts tasting fairly well... I still want to know how they made their pumpkin mousse...

It's almost as interesting as the spreadable chocolate in the tubs that they sell next to the peanut butter in the grocery store.  The advertisements show mothers spreading this chocolate goo on bread for their kids meals.

Do you mean Nutella? Nutella is great!! At least it has real ingredients in...remains to be seen what the aerosol cake mix has in it in terms of ingredients and preservatives.

I wonder if these are the same students that came up with the pancakes in a can concept. There was a thread about it, hmmmmm.

 

Welp, I know my daughter would buy it, along with all the other easy to make products she buys :roll:, only in America.......

I just don't get why you wouldn't just buy a premade cake. Why would you go to the trouble of heating an oven, and washing a baking pan to eat this? Just buy a cake!

Because if you went and bought one it wouldn't be "home made" cake!! Also, you can just squirt it into a mug and do it in the microwave, apparently...

I don't know how that guy got a C on his paper as this is just  a form of plaagerism as far as I am concerned.  And what joke that he is talking of patenting.  I have a cookbook from 2005 that basically does the same thing, but with a slightly lighter batter but which comes out of the microwave like a holey cake.  Chefs, like Heston Blumenthal have been doing stuff like this for years.

Awhat do mean, cazza about the 'c' on his paper being plagiarism? do you mean the FedEx guy?

AI didn't I explain myself very well about Fred smith-- so way before we all had the big delivery companies of UPS and FedEx -- in a college business class fs wrote his business plan on a delivery service that had its own fleet of planes and trucks and hubs and his teacher gave him a c on it while of course its become a global giant --

so I was just comparing about how ideas can get bad reviews and still be viable -- however everybody & his brother is in the cake busyness where fs only had to compete against the post office I guess --
