its all bullshit
I'd probably book the day off.
But if it raises money, the diabetics will probably get over it.
...type 1 diabetic awareness rather than type 2?
also, it's perfectly possible to bake cakes which are low sugar/ sugar free, so I don't really get the joke.
But without it, it's a bit weird.
...which is concerning given how the number of cases of type 2 has exploded over recent years. 'Eating cake gives you diabetes', 'Diabetics can't eat sugar.', etc. I'm assuming that based on this thread Epimer doesn't come from a scientific/medical background?
I wouldn't like to ever actually be mean to anyone on here...
I'm sobbing into my DPhil certificate here.
I hope you're happy.
GOOD WORK, not your basic phd crap! :'D
Is finally paying off.
Everyone thinks they can bake. And it's a self-perpetuating problem:
- person has a go at baking
- bake gets brought into work
- usual comments abound: "ooh that looks nice! did you bake it? ooh I shouldn't. Ooh that's delicious" - regardless of whether the cake is good or not.
- person mistakes other people's politeness / sugar craving for validation of baking skill
- person has another go at baking
usually the bake is brownies. Any idiot can make brownies and they always taste fine. So everyone's happy.
they're just chocolate cakes and anyone who thinks there's a way of making them better than "a nice chocolate cake" is buying into their own hype.
In my opinion I like them gooey rather than cakey (Nigella Lawson has a good recipe) but whatever.

where people manage to get their knickers in a twist about (optionally) getting to eat a bit of cake for a charity.
'the problem with baking'
(siorry to pick on you c_c_bm but you sound arsed!)
4/10 on a scale of arsedness?
I'm never going to object that strongly to charity fundraising.
but interacting with my colleagues can go fuck itself.
Are you baking something epimer, and if so, what?
So.. maybe some kind of tray cake in an envelope?
Thanks for trying to help, though.
