"Cake or death?"
 
2012-06-03 08:56:08 AM
Could you be a little more specific about what lie you are referring to, subcaketard?

Perhaps it's the claim that:
"Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte has never faded in popularity in its homeland, and for good reason.It's simply better in Germany."

/ Perhaps you mean to make a claim for your own Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte?

// "Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with a round of buttered parchment paper." -- Let me see-- where did I put my buttered parchment paper? That recipe stops me dead in my tracks right there. Why not just grease it?

First you will be baked and then there will be cake.

Get a piece of parchment paper and rub it with a stick of butter, not bacon grease or lard you heathen.

"The cake is a lie" is a well-known Internet meme from the game "Portal"...

I had to look it up, but I recognized it for the meme-y goodness it was.

fta It's not that German food is bad, it's just a little dull

My dad used to say, "There's a reason you let the Germans make the cars, and the Italians make the food."

THIS.

My German neighbors brought me Easter "cookies" one year. They looked like delicious bunnies. They tasted like rocks.

When you stack it against the food in the UK, it's a culinary orgasm.

Also, your dad is hilarious... and insightful.

STFU and eat your cake.
 
2012-06-03 11:16:21 AM
Really? A cake recipe with a lame headline? Fark, you've changed.

Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte

I don't know how in the hell this can be a popular activity. I had my Kirsch torted once years ago and I'm still walking funny.

Besides, if you don't know what German cuisine entails, ask this guy.

www.comedy.co.uk

Seriously, the Germans know two things. Beer and chocolate. Oh and unleashed slaughter against humanity. Three things.
 
2012-06-03 11:18:14 AM
A sensible dinner then home for some efficient German sex over the food? I think not.

Not the *best* at it, mind you, but they know it.
 
2012-06-03 11:23:57 AM
It's delicious! Whenever someone asks me what birthday cake I want, I always choose a variant of Black Forest Cake. I've lucked out on my last two birthdays, too. :)

/Any cake with chocolate, cream, cherries, and kirschwasser is bound to be yummy.

I'd eat his cake. Seems legit.

The problem with German food is that you eat it, and three days later you are hungry again.

I must say, for a bunch of blood thirsty huns they really do know how to make some smashing desserts and pastries.

It's a lie trap
 
2012-06-03 12:24:13 PM
One of the main things I remember from my time in Nurnberg Germany, during the Viet Nam conflict, was the vast array of pastry shops, and the wonderfully decorated cakes and pastries. Black forest Cake was always available. many types of tortes. Beautifully decorated. A slice could be yours for around 2 marks (50 cents). While my buddies were out drinking good German beer and getting laid, I was hanging out at the pastry shops!. I might have packed on a few pounds, but I never came down with any social diseases!!

I like German food. They are not shy about veal and have made preserving meat an art form. And their ability to prepare a potato is second to only the French. One of my favorite meals is a warm bowl of creamy German potato soup and a cool German beer, with a bit of black rye bread.

That is disturbing and disgusting.

And I say that as a fat man.

Don't eat German burgers, most everything else is hit or miss. Doners are hard to fark up.

HOWEVER, they do some damn good cakes and coffee. Best coffee I've ever had so far is here in Europe, though Britain does do desserts like no other.

Oh God I can't wait to visit London again.
