    what's fondant?
     
  5. Mar 27, 2008 #4
    Yes, I wondered that as well.

    It's sugary confection.

    Or does he mean fondu?

    It is a sugar water mix

    I was going to have a shower with my clothes on but we had a major disaster at work when some one tipped some of this down the drain, it set and blocked the main sewer, so i had to
    go outside with a bucket of hot water.

    You're not burned, are you? I hope it was at least cool enough you're just sticky and starting to set up and not that you're burnt to a crisp.

    Fondant is a type of frosting, sets up really firm (assuming the British word means the same as the American word)...when you see a gorgeous cake with perfectly smooth frosting, or shapes cut out on it, that's likely fondant.

    Yes the American and British words are the same, the mix was hot but not enough to scold, but liquid enough to soak through to my skin, i think i have lost about a billion hairs and feel itchy.

    Just thank your lucky star that it was fondant and not melted dark chocolate. You'd have a bunch of the Sisters pounding down your door.

    Sorry Woolie :frown: ...that sounds so uncomfortable!

    Sounds a bit like when you pour candle wax on your arm, it hurts like buggery for a while, but it cools fairly rapidly. Still it's summer soon you probably needed a shearing. Tough luck mate, doesn't sound like it was too painful thankfully, might of been a little embarrassing though. :redface::smile:

    So fess up, Woolie! Did you end up with a Brazilian bikini wax?:eek:

    I don't think men can get one of those, with the tackle being what it is. But that did make me chuckle. :biggrin:

    It was painfully, like some medieval torture, it took over an hour to get cleaned up.

    Blimey, my apologies, fair enough. I think we can all empathise there. :eek:

    It's that stiff upper lip thing, obviously being a manly sort of ram, you kinda sucked it up when you were describing it. Well done soldier. :smile:

    Poor wollie isn't so wooly anymore. :frown: Good thing it wasn't too hot to scald at least. Something like that could have caused some pretty serious burns.

    I dunno, I'm not sure I like hair in my chocolate, but if you wax before you get that job... :uhh:
