Chopstix, I saw something about Durian fruit on the travel channel. They say it tastes and smells really nasty.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Constance, people either love or hate durian. For those who passionately love it, it smells like heaven. For those who can't stand it, it stinks like the worst sewer. Strange huh? I'm no fan myself. It stinks up the entire house. And airliners do not allow durian on board as it stinks up the whole airplane. :-)

Here in the USA, we have mooncakes, moonpies, & moonpastries.
They are a delicate thin cake filled with marshmallow filling and folded over to create a half circle and covered with thin yellow frosting.
You can make them or buy them. We eat them year round.

What third world puts meat & veggies in a cake?

Although, we have been known to bake some "things" in our cakes....engagement rings, breaking out of jail "file" tools, and car keys.
