Cake is the work of God ?
And then there is this..
I like Chocolate cakes.. but I LOVE Christmas cake...I would bake one each year if and when I can... I even made one of the layers of my wedding cake a large fruit cake... Many loved it.. I think it is a matter of ones taste in cakes
Ludefisk. It really isn't even food if you ask me. Only the Swedes would take a perfectly good piece of fish, soak it in drain cleaner for a while (lye), then soak it in ice water for a few days then serve it. It turns into fish jello which is possibly still poisonous. It's REVOLTING! My mother in law was Icelandic, this nastiness was a Christmas favorite of hers.
Also compliments of my Icelandic mother in law... curdled spoilt milk, dressed with fresh sheeps blood. I do NOT EVEN want to know where she managed to find sheeps blood in Seattle! I couldn't even look at it.
And lastly, the same woman made orange jello with a pretty sour cream ribbon... when curious about the brown bits in it... we discovered it was ... ground beef. At least it wasn't spoiled, poisonous or uncooked.
Thanks GOD I'm divorced and don't have to endure those family dinners anymore.

It's water chestnut cake that I ordered at a restaurant in Chicago's Chinatown. I can stomach almost anything, I love squid, octopus, eel, tons of stuff like that. But this was so difficult to eat. I like water chestnuts so I figured it would be good. It smelled fantastic, and was basically just the chestnuts along with sugar and caramel. But the texture was so gelatinous and weird, it was basically lukewarm jello that wiggled and didn't taste like much. I ate it all though because the rest of the meal and atmosphere was lovely.
Other than that, mushrooms. I can't and won't eat them.
