Aj: having a detachable handle sounds great! I have a plastic handle frying pan and I wish I could pop it off to put the pan in the oven Shelia: ahhh I love those things! When I moved out on my own my mom got me a grippy rubber sheet that you use for opening jar and I used it all the time. The oxo is the luxury version of that. Lindsay: I saw those and love them!

Bec: The scraper is the best for that! Any recipe where you have to sprinkle the counter with flour is any annoying to clean up without one Mardi: Yay! Hope you enjoy them! Mine took quite a while to get to me (which appears to be a common experience judging by her feedback) but they did arrive and have held up great over the years so I still highly recommend them. Story: do! I am considering getting a second set at some point

Mardi: Thanks! If only we could take our mixers with us on vacation A Canadian Foodie: I find that running hot water, especially closer to the opening helps, and then turning the mold so that you are pulling down on the stick instead of up gets it out cleanly! Gemma: Thanks! Becs: It was a great day for BBqing and eating popsicles Jules: Thanks, they were tasty
Rod: as a failed gardener, I'm extremely jealous of your harvest haha. This would be great with home grown cucumbers
Allison: I let it chill until completely firm. It took about 30 minutes

Vincci: Thank you!! I don't think I'm ready to do cakes for hire haha, these were an exception as a gift for my sister Kristin: I think most people ate them! I was wondering the very same thing when I noticed someone nearby taking a nibble from a petal. After they found out the peonies were sugar, everyone wanted to taste and see.
