Can You Bubble Wrap That Cake To Go?

I had the oddest phone call last night. A customer, who had ordered three durian cakes from me, to bring to dunno where, calls me, asking me to sell her the cakes in the cake pans!!!! Apparently my little babies were making a journey somewhere, and needed to be properly padded and insulated against ....violent handling.

Sooo, how DOES one transport a cheese cake, about 8" diameter, 2 inch high, in a dignified manner without looking like you're smuggling chopped up body parts? Tell me tell me please. Alas, I couldn't part with my cake tins, as I needed them for something else today. Worked out well anyway, as the customer came prepared with polystyrene box and tupperware, which fitted perfectly. Should be okay for a car journey.

On a separate note, one of Boolicious' posts of yesteryear has been subconsciously embedded in my head, and I have had a craving for this burger for the longest time, so last saturday, after body step and a massage, I was feeling ravenously hungry, and decided, ah, what the heck. I went for the full monty, DAGING DOUBLE SPECIAL. For the uninformed, for our local burgers, "special" generally denotes wrapped in egg. Double means double patties. So double special means two patties wrapped in egg. Making the egg crepe is an art form. They partially crack the egg, and drizzle the contents on the griddle in a circular motion, much like making tosai. They then place the two cooked meat patties in the centre, and fold it up. Layers of chilli sauce and mayonnaise complete the masterpiece. My only grouse is the strong taste of margarine. I detest margarine the way I detest....people who dont finish their wines at dinner banquets, yet allow waiters to refill their glass.

Oh, I forget to mention, the local franchise in question is OTAI burger, probably an offspring of RAMLY. While Ramly is probably someone's name, I have NO idea what OTAI could possibly stand for.

The single special burger is already sinful for me... now you're taunting me to have double special! :P

I've came out with my own version now - no sauces, just melted cheese and the special wrapped in egg sprinkled with lots of black pepper. Tastes good as I don't like the soggy sauces.
