        I like that they're trying weird new things. Plus the new video features have been pretty good.

      Do the fresh bucket of pudding from Castlevania next! And then eat the pudding!

        The pudding is also cursed.

          My video would be a dumper fire. You know how a lot of recipes have a picture of all the ingredients you need? I try to do that, it never works out as planned. In the worst case scenarios, I just end up not posting anything and eating all the cake.

              I think I might like a video based on "dumper fire".

      Limeaid? Look, I've been silent up till now but I have to say it: You guys really need a proofreader.

      I really hate to criticize because I think you guys are great and the articles are just fine in every other way, but the rate of typos on this website is unusually high. For sure, most people aren't nearly as OCD as me, but I can't help but notice.

      Again, I feel like a jerk to even say anything, but I just thought maybe you guys could use the heads-up.

      NB: most supermarkets stock "superfine sugar" or "powdered sugar" as "confectioner's sugar"

      • reply
        May 5, 2014 3:01 PM

        Also called caster sugar

      • reply
        May 5, 2014 3:16 PM

        Superfine is more expensive than regular granulated sugar, for those of you thinking of buying that stuff

        • reply
          May 5, 2014 3:43 PM

          Can also just make your own by dumping regular sugar into a blender or food processor and letting it rip for a couple minutes.

        superfine sugar is not the same thing as powdered sugar/confectioner's sugar.

        • reply
          May 5, 2014 3:43 PM

          ok I didn't know that but the recipe in the video called for powdered sugar so at least i wasn't the only one to make that mistake

        We had planned it, but wanted to be a little conservative for the first one. We may or may not have put some Gin in after we shot though…….
