Friday Night Cake Club for 11/1/13 - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Thread Starter 

Sadly we've had too many incidents where people handed out poisoned goods (yes, obviously mentally ill people) to kids who got very sick or injured so now part of the Halloween ritual is going through your kids candy to see if any looks tampered with and toss any that does. Because you really couldn't tell if a home made treat was tampered with or not you would automatically toss those. It's really sad! So I make treats for the people we know...kids and grown ups alike...and we deliver those and hand out packaged candy to those we don't. And, indeed, in many places trick or treating has stopped being from house to house. Cities organize events for kids to attend and shop keepers to hand out candy in a "safe and well lighted" environment. This is how my g'daughter went this year. Their suburb town organized a downtown trick or treat for the kids. So it's pretty hard to get all worked up over H'ween unless we are having a party which I think we will do next year now that our son has decided he's too old for trick or treating.  I'm sure there are plenty of small towns in America where this isn't the case but it is here.

Karina...I saw these somewhere and wondered if it was worth it to go to the sugar trouble. Funny for a H'ween party too! What was the response when you served these???

 

I actually have a question for everyone...how does isomalt taste? With regular sugar you can't get that clear look that you can with isomalt but real sugar can taste really good and I'm scared to spend the money for isomalt and have it taste bad???

isomalt doesn't taste bad--it's good--but it can lead to gastrointestinal issues--florian bellanger, one of the judges on cupcake wars 'fails' isomalt decor--it could be a big problem to peeps with pre-existing tummy issues

I'm working on two cakes this week. One is a pool table and the other one is a basket ball. They are both to represent Puerto Rico. I have made a lot of cake so far never a ball. Hope that turns out well. I made the bottom of pool table and all the decorations. Tomorrow I'll be baking the cakes.
