What is really endearing about this is how it goes from a gag to an actual serious evaluation of the dish. A proper retort for effort hard earned.

they made a nice cake!

I guess all the alcohol was burned out by the heat introduced to the cake and the frosting.

The name of the drink Ben describes is "probably" called pink panty droppers. It's real dangerous and great.

I agree with Ben's reasoning behind not liking melons. I only like very few melons for the same reason. Snowball melon and super sweet water melon, the rest of the melon family can go fuck themselves.

However, Jan's hatred of red fruits, it's fine, but I really hope it does not extend to the berry kingdom.. Cause those are all the best berries... Missing out on cherries and strawberries alone would make this a genuine tragedy.

I have a baking tip: Ratios are very important. That's it.

They got the wrong flavor of Natty Light Seltzer. Aloha Beaches is way better to drink. I don’t know if the peach and mango would fit the cake though.

You make it sound like it's the only cooking show on the internet. I don't know if that's true, but I don't know enough about the internet to refute that. So you're probably right.

There’s actually no colon in the logo, Jan. Which makes sense, considering there is no colon that can handle your culinary creations.

A little corn starch would help thicken it if you're going to heat it.

i actually like the natty light seltzers more than i like a lot of the other ones, they're not bad!

I'd say the cake they made is in a similar family as, say, a tres leches. Sometimes a cake's just moist! That's how it be!
