My mom was at a Pampered Chef party putting this cake together. She actually dipped the utensils in chocolate. As the hostess was demonstrating her products, the apple peeler, my mother would go over and snatch the "discards" off her table. The people at the party ended up paying more attention to her than the cooking demo. At first she was a little ticked but they ended up working together. She has already ordered another cake from her. Next time she will use wood utensils.
