Sweets

Post by Relvee » Thu Sep 26, 2013 9:36 am

It's getting close to "that time of year", when in my city (and only there, it's patented in EU) You can buy the best sweets in the whole universe. It's called the St. Martin's Crossaint, and it's packed beyond belief with white poppy seeds, dates, figs, and more. They are in sale only in autumn, with the big finale on St.Martin street holliday by november 11, where they're sold in metric tons. I can only encourage anyone to try them, cause once You've eaten, there's no way back. They are sold localy, but I guess this year there'll be also an option to order some online.

I have TWO questions...

1) Does it contain cinnamon? As everyone knows, this is the most important spice in ANY sweet baked goods.

2) Is that tea or coffee with it? If it's tea, well done! ;) If it's coffee, shame on you! Have you ever considered putting COFFEE in your coffee? :D

1. Cinnamon doesn't work with white poppy seeds, having two greatest baking ingredients in one thing would collapse the planet into black hole, dangerous idea!

2. The "thing" is what we have in office, but the agony is with a reason: once You get home You can enjoy all the best tea and coffee even more. :wink:

I would say that the addition of cinnamon completely ruins everything it touches. It is the barrel of water and barrel of sewage analogy.

if you add a spoonful of water to a barrel of sewage, it it still a barrel of sewage
if you add a spoonful of sewage to a barrel of water, it is now a barrel of sewage

here, replace "lovely amazingly tasty sounding cake" with "water" and replace "sewage" with "cinnamon."

Presumably it's also the season of anaphylatic shocks.

Cinnamon makes anything sweet taste awesome. Total fail.
If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way you were told.
