I have baked a chocolate cake, complete with chocolate buttercream and chocolate fondant icing on top.
"D"H has served the cake by cutting it down the middle into two halves and then cutting these halves into slices (like you would a loaf of bread - so all the slices vary in sizes).
AIBU to think that this is just wrong? I have pointed out that you don't see restaurants hacking cutting cakes like this. Also it means that the cake doesn't stay as fresh.

Am pretty pissed off.

what is this world coming too i cant believe i am reading this !i am amazed you would even think about letting him near your chocolate cake you made it you should be cutting it and you should be eating ALL of it .

that sounds illegal to me

That's just crazy. If you have ever eaten lasagne then you should be aware of how it is layered.

He once "made" a lasagne using a couple of jars of dolmio "sauce". Apparently the directions said "place a layer of meat, then white sauce and pasta, repeat layering".

I got home to a lasagne which had all the meat on the bottom, followed by a glupy lump of white sauce and pasta layers stuck together on top.

He's never been allowed to forget that.

Oh God, no, cooked smoked salmon eeeuurgh
Some perverts my sister cook it in with scrambled eggs. So you get a bit of a fishy whiff and random bits of pink rubber in your breakfast

Wrong wrong wrong

Grilled croissants? Buttered croissants? Wilful cake butchering? There is a whole world of wrong on this thread.

Perhaps now he's admitted it you can begin moving on with your lives and just put the whole incident behind you.

My DH once took the lovely organic broad beans from our veg box, shelled the beans, threw them in the bin and put the pods on to steam!

There's a theme here, the other day mil baked some smoked salmon in foil and butter.

This would be a deal breaker for me. Especially since the cake is chocolate.

It seems to be ok to have bread with pâté and cheese if its lunchtime. But order a pâté starter or after dinner cheese, and you get no bread.

It is wrong
Or maybe it (and BIWI) is right, and this is why French women are thinner.
In any case I'll take the buttered croissant and bread with my cheese.

The French also serve their cheeseboard without bread or crackers. They are wrong about that too.

Classic sign of having an affair.sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

SadGiantPanda Sat 27-Apr-13 08:49:29

Oh, leave the poor man alone! You probably drove him to it, OP. sad

Buttered? Never! You are wrong wrong wrong. They should be gently warmed then served with strawberry or cherry jam.

JeremyPiven Sat 27-Apr-13 08:42:06

Of course croissants should be buttered and jammed

How else do you keep all the flakey bits together?

Because it "makes them crispy" and burnt

Mumof3men Sat 27-Apr-13 08:17:33

what do you mean-grills croissants???????????

Now I feel a little sorry for you DH, he clearly was raised by savages!

Bobyan Sat 27-Apr-13 08:14:55

We're still talking about it, he has admitted this morning he did it because he knew he would get to eat more of it.

I'm not sure I can get over the betrayal. And don't get me started about my mil.

Lowers voice to a whisper, she grills croissants.

My DM does this. Drives me fucking nuts, and is a throwback to when one normal sized cake would be expected to feed my extended family on both sides for my birthday when I was little.

We now no longer need to feed the 5000. I have to bite my lip to not scream 'cut it properly or buy a bigger fucking cake!'

JeremyPiven Sat 27-Apr-13 07:55:06

How are you feeling this morning OP?

My 'D'H puts cold eggs in boiling water so that they crack. And then complains when I eat Brie by starting at the pointy end. That's what e everyone does right?
