Coconut (coconut cake inside too), Red Velvet, Chocolate, and Cookie Dough (vanilla cake and buttercream with choc chips.)

I work for a specialty cake shop so we have tons of batter daily that we can't use as it's made fresh each day. There has to be extra batter each day just in case we get a last minute order. So we just take our excess cake batters and bake cakes with them. The cakes chill overnight and then are mixed with a little buttercream. It then looks like raw cookie dough but it's really baked cake with frosting. Then, take a cookie scoop and scoop them out and then round them with your hand. Freeze them for a bit and then dip them in coating chocolate. I use candy dipping tools to dip them in the chocolate just like a truffle. Coating chocolate is different to use than tempered chocolate so you have to move quickly or it sets up on you really fast.

go light on the buttercream. It's just to hold the cake together once it's in ball form so it's probably 3/4 cake to 1/4 buttercream.

Why haven't I found this thread before??

Thai iced coffee and Thai iced tea:



Thai iced tea is my favorite drink EVER. My roommate and I started going to these two Thai restaurants that were on the same street and drinking this stuff a lot last year. If you've never had Thai iced tea, go find some NOW. Like, right now! The coffee isn't bad, either, but the tea is like orange crack.

The food was good, too, at those places. I usually got General Tso's chicken, Pad Thai, Yakisoba, or Thai spicy basil chicken. Man, I loved college. I have since started making Pad Thai at home and a sort of knockoff Thai tea that's probably more like Chai tea, but it's still good even if it's not the same.

i've only had bubble tea once, sadly i don't remember how it tasted.

one of these days i'd like to make a cake that tastes good. i follow the recipes exactly, using the appropriate flour, adding ingredients in the right order, etc. it's always dense and dry. yuck.

I love bubble tea. Iced tea and coffee too, but that's a given. Aloe vera juice is really nice, too.

I love bubble tea simply because it's so weird. I don't even like tapioca pudding - I always thought that was disgusting.

But something about drinking this nice shake-like fruity drink, and then zzzzzzap! up comes a little alien squishy thing up through the straw.

It's like a mystery squishy ball party in my mou .............. oh .... maybe I shouldn't go there.

I had that when I was in Edmonton.

Didn't taste bad, but the thought of frog eggs was enough to not let me finish it.

Yeah, bubble tea is not my favorite. When I'm drinking something, I'd rather not have bizarre objects coming up the straw unexpectedly.
