That's the chocolate bar. Real turkish delight is a fruit flavoured gellee cut in squares and lightly dusted with powdered sugar (sometimes).

Ohh okay. Those are some... interesting flavours. I would have to aim for some non traditional flavours there. Do you have any idea what flavour the Big Turk gellee is?

I think the "Big Turk" is supposed to mimic the traditional rosewater flavour but I am not sure what they used. My grandmother made rosewater, but my favourite were a type with nuts, a citrus flavour and a mint one.

I am going to my favourite bulk food store tomorrow where they sell all sorts of ethnic and local items. I am going to get a bottle of rosewater and maybe try this again. Maybe between us we can figure it out!

Hm. I don't see myself enjoying a mint, or a nut turkish delight. I do remember enjoying the Big Turk.... Maybe I'll look into some rosewater aswell. Perhaps do a few chocolate coats and a few non.

I put together a short slideshow of my baking pictures from this thread and added some pleasant music.

Hey guys, here's a few more things I have made recently and remembered to take pictures of.


Brownies with peppermint icing topped with chocolate and candy cane chunks.


Smores ice cream on a sticky bun



Angel Food Cake




My first ever attempt at piping icing. Vanilla cupcakes with banana buttercream daffodils.
