Seriously.

Still, the story she made up to go with the photo was golden. [Big Grin]

The funniest thing about that is that it is in the oven...completely decorated. If only cakes came out that way after only having to pour batter in a pan.

I don't think it's in the oven. I'm guessing it's on storage racks at a bakery. The wires are white (I've never seen painted oven racks), and they look too thin. Also, they seem too far apart.

Oh man, you know, I think you're right. I saw that reflection (camera?) and took it in as an oven light. *snap*

I don't usually read the comments on Cake Wrecks, but I did - out loud - and my 22-year-old niece and 13-year-old daughter were in the room. Then they started making comments and pretty soon everything was funny.

Jews eat babies TOO? I didn't know another religion was accused of eating babies...

We certainly would never dream of offending Jews by suggesting that only Mormon's eat babies.

Jews are the original baby eaters, we are only able to feebly imitate your extraordinaryness.

Hi! Welcome to Hatrack! Where the Mormons and the Jews all eat babies, and all have horns.

But not jello "salads". We leave that to the Mormons. >_<

In all seriousness, does the "baby eating Mormon" meme exist outside of Hatrack, GC, and sake?

Hah! Don't knock Jewish food till you tried it...Commercialized Geflite Fish is gross. You should taste the ones my Grandma makes from scratch...

I've had gefilte fish. I can believe the ones your grandmother makes from scratch are better that the commercialized ones, it would be hard for them to be any worse. The commercialized ones have a consistency that is very gelatinous, which is what prompted my response to rivka.

I should also add that my mother can make a really excellent jello salad. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Scandinavians? Even the Swedes and the Danes I know won't touch lutefisk. Its a Norwegian thing.

I'm Lutheran, and I won't eat lutefisk. Or Tuna Hot Dish ( which was served at my church just last week).

Lutherans have the jello salad tradition, too. I've seen lemon jello with onions and carrots in it. Bleh.

My grandma makes orange jello with carrots and pineapple. That's actually really good.

She's from Kansas. I've heard it's a midwestern thing too.

Waaaait a minute!

Oh, it turns out canned (cooked) pineapple doesn't dissolve gelatin.

Carry on.

Jarred gefilte fish is an abomination before me. (But my kids like it. Go figure.) The cooked stuff, whether homemade or from the frozen loaves, is really not even comparable.

And I have tried several varieties of jello salad. This is me knocking them anyway. [Razz]

You could have tried hundred of varieties of jello salad, without trying the better stuff made by my mom.

I've had both bottled gefilte fish and homemade stuff made by a Jewish friend (both years ago before I was diagnosed with celiac disease so I could actually eat the stuff). The homemade was definitely superior to the bottled stuff, but still not something I'd ever seek out or something I regret not being able to eat any more.

While gefilte fish can contain gluten, it certainly need not do so. The stuff for Passover doesn't.

And it can be an acquired taste.

Isn't the stuff for passover made with matzo meal? All the commercial stuff is.

Depends on the brand. Quite a bit of the commercial stuff is not, but if all you see is Manishewitz and Strauss, you might think otherwise.

Every recipe I've been able to find for gefilte fish uses either matzo meal, flour or bread crumbs, all of which contain gluten. What do the "gluten free" gefilte fish use instead?

I've never had a jello salad. Didn't even know that was possible...

My favorite Jew-food would probably be potatoe kuggel, or perhaps cholent, both of which are faaaar superior and probably way more common than gefilte fish.

I'd be willing to try this..."Jello Salad"...wonder where I could find some...

I don't know what that means.

I mean, I do know what it means, but I am not sure if it is a reference, an invocation, a summoning, or a non sequitur. Probably not the last. My money is on the third.

For all the jokes about jello salads, I ate a lot more of them as a kid. I don't think I've actually had one for years. Wait - no. Never mind. There was one at Christmas that no one ate because the cook insisted on including fruit because it is more festive, but the jello-eaters (my brothers) won't eat jello if it has anything in it.

Potato starch, presumably.

And Armoth, potato kugel is nasty. We hates it, my precious.

Cholent, OTOH, can be quite nice.
