Oh, Mari, on my own I understood only "kahvi", but nontheless this is a PERFECT lesson! Thank you! :D


Kiitos oppitunnista ja reseptistä. I usually prefer eating to baking, but this looks like something I could manage if I tried. :)

By the way, how much is "1 paketti" of sugar? Over here we usually buy one-kilo bags of sugar, which is quite a lot. :)


Kiittää jotakuta jostakin, so Kiitos oppitunnista ja reseptistä (all neutral vowels) :)

Ordinary sugar is usually in one kilo bags but at least the packet of powdered sugar that I have is 500g. A quick search of recipes seems to agree although there is a 250g variation for those who don't have quite as sweet tooth.


Kiitos! :) I edited what I had written after a while, but still incorrectly. Maybe I'll get it right the next time.


I noticed that :) Maybe next time I'm going to correct someone I'll spend less time drooling over pictures of some dessert and make the correction when it's still relevant :)


That's an understandable excuse. :)


I always seem to think I don't have powdered sugar at home when I need it, so then I end up buying more... Which means I now had at least two 250g boxes and one 500g box in the cupboard. :-S

Normal caster sugar is bought in one kilo paper bags, yes. Small kids are explained the weights of babies by describing how many of these sugar bags the newborn weighed, which I find a bit surprising since those kids will (hopefully) encounter one litre milk cartons weighing the same much more often.
