No cake throwing, that would be pie throwing :eek:

That cake looks too good to throw.

Congrats to Italy for winning Euro 2008. Football, either American or the real FOOTball are great sports. The former is better, cheerleaders on the sidelines and commercials for pottie breaks :biggrin:

Time for me to duck!!

Gene... thanks for your lines but Italy DIDN'T win Euro 2008, Spain did. We won the World Cup two years ago and since then, the team changed a lot, and results consequently.

to duck.... I know it's slang.. it's something like "to vanish, to escape, to avoid a risk"?

Dino,

Sorry, much embarrassment from the left side of the Atlantic. :redface:

I watched the Euro 2008 final. It was a long time coming and well deserved for Spain, they clearly outplayed the Germans, in both hustle and style. I must have been thinking about the Azzurri win over France in the World Cup 2006. :smile:

Speaking of cake? I worked 5 months in Calafat, Romania in fall of 1994 for my job with the US federal government. While there, I worked with many Italians from the Guardia di Finazia (sp?), which they told me was like the US Coast Guard and IRS in one agency. Also there were other countries (France, Holland, Germany) representing the Western European Union (WEO).

WEO invited the 3 Americans to their Christmas Eve celebration. One of the Italian traditions was eating a special cake, cut in wedges with champagne. It was essentially a lite sponge cake topped with powdered sugar. By chance, would you know the name of the cake?

The cake was good but the best part was trying to eat it while drinking champagne and getting the powdered sugar everywhere.

Yes, the word "duck" used this way refers to getting out of the way, especially your head, like "duck and hide".

Hi Gene
the only national Christmas cakes we have are two:
1) Panettone, from Milan, butter sponge cake filled with raisin/sultana, candies etc.
something like this one:

2) Pandoro, from Verona, which has white sugar on top but anything inside.

Dino,

Pandoro looks very familiar to me. The cake I had back in 1994 had no filling and I think had an almond flavor.

Thanks, all of these cakes is making me hungry. :smile:

Best regards,
