Addie--I'm with you--I love to make desserts, I just don't eat them!!! Good thing, otherwise I'd weigh 400 lb. As it is, I still wear the same size I wore 30 years ago.

I go through about 5-6 lb of white sugar and 4 lb of brown sugar a year. Most of that is used for pickles and jam.

I never got around to making it. I don't find it all that sweet. It isn't as sweet as most icing.

Hmmmm...must be just me, I find it horribly sweet--maybe not sweet, but overwhelming re: the flavor? Hate it. But I like almonds, just not marzipan.

I understand. I like hazelnuts, but hate anything with crushed hazelnuts, like Nutella or Ferrero Rocher.
