Jessa, Ben and Their Brood: Making a (Diaper) Mountain out of a Mold House

Recommended Posts

That sundae looks disgusting. I bet they didn't even eat it.

 

Who serves a sundae with half of what's in it running down the sides and globbed onto the saucer? Or even serves a sundae so overpiled and near melting that that happens? It's bizarre.

Exactly what I was thinking Bitter Apple - ice cream is cheaper than a couple of cake mixes, a dozen eggs (for the batter) and some frosting?  She doesn't do the shopping in that house.

I remember one filmed birthday had a store bought sheet cake. I'm sure TLC paid for that. Storebought cakes can be expensive, especially enough to feed 20+ people. I don't think Michelle even knows that you can bake a cake at home. In her experience, food just sort of appears.

Where is this baby already?????

That ice cream looks gross.

And they served ice cream to their guests because Jessa and Ben like ice cream. Remember how they said cake is dry and not moist like ice cream? Nice going on making your guests feel welcomed and taken care of. So much for hospitality.

It looked to me like he was actually looking down at a script occasionally.

Yeah, that's exactly what it looked like to me. At least four times he looks down to where his left hand would be off camera.

 

And the sundae looked sooooo gross. I have eaten (and made) very moist cakes. And calling ice cream "moist?" Ick.

I recall Famy buying a particularly neon cake for a birthday at a skating rink. Might have been for Joy-Anna.

I can't fault them on the ice cream. I like cake, but the icing usually ruins it for me, especially on store bought cakes.

It was nice that they included Jana and Jinger in the birthday meal with minimal kiddie involvement. It was probably a nice break for them.

Do all American cakes have frosting on them? No whipped cream? No marzipan? Fruit or berries?

 

Anyways, at least Jordyn looks happy in these pics. Must be nice to get out of the house and spend a day with her mom.

I hate frosting. Most Italian cakes have whipped creme or we just sprinkle on some powered sugar. When I eat a cake I push the frosting off.

Not all American cakes have frosting, but most birthday cakes do as it makes it easier to make "birthday decorations."

 

Ben looking up and to the right repeatedly reminded me of the body language theories.  It just might apply in his case.  There was nothing heart felt in his birthday video.  I think Anna looks really good and her resemblance to her sister Suze is really coming out.  I bet lunch was filmed since there were so many additional family members there.

Most store-bought cakes have frosting on less it's pound cake, or angel food, etc.

At home we sometimes do the whipped cream and berries. Also at least around here there are cakes with fruit on them, especially in season. 

In general we (in my experience) don't eat a lot of Marzipan and I've never see it on a cake. But we do do candy. Usually Hershey's.

Most wedding cakes have a ton of frosting. Most weddings have cake. Ice cream isn't as traditional.

Lol, did she really say that? I guess a woman who hasn't cooked in twenty years would have no idea that you can buy boxes of Duncan Hines for less than $2 at Wal-Mart.

Yeah, I remember seeing it mentioned on TWOP back in the day, based off of a blog post that has seemingly since been retconned.  Now it's "we always have an ice cream social at 7:00 PM" (insert eyeroll).

That sundae probably looked much better when it came to the table. They probably had to take 50000 pictures to get one they liked and in the meantime, it melted into a gross mess.

And I love frosting on cakes. Unless it's that tasteless whipped cream frosting. Yuck. That stuff gets taken off immediately. Give me the sugar frosting that makes your teeth hurt.

I really don't believe Nov 1st was Jessa's due date. It just made a precious story. She may not even be overdue. And, to be real, only the baby knows for sure.

 

Why wouldn't the 1st have been her due date? Women deliver later than their due dates all the time, and her sister was quite late with her first just a few months ago. I'm not at all surprised.

Just clicked on the birthday video.

Uh, Ben looks stoned or really tired.

Why don't they realize that these videos are really bad? My daughters make silly videos on my phone and truthfully, they are much better.

Shortening and corn syrup emulsified is cheaper than actual cream/butter and sugar, so probably.

And marzipan? Fruit? That's for queers!

Cool whip, candy bars, and ice cream sandwiches. Still too much work for Jessa.

 

Yeah, but she could call Jana over to fix it.

Well, I always kind of wondered whether she was given a ballpark date or a specific date around now and then decided to say it was the nearby date of Nov. 1 so she could have the cool made-for-tv story of the baby's being due on their anniversary. She didn't necessarily do that, of course, but it would be an awfully Duggarlike thing to do, seems to me.

With both Jill and Jessa going so late over their due dates, I have to wonder if they weren't fudged up a little bit for the theatrics. If both have a due date of two weeks later, the media wouldn't pay attention to them until that date came and went. Moving it up two weeks ensures that People is calling every day to see if Baby Dillard/Seewald is here yet.

Yeah. Exactly. And a due date is a best estimate, not a firm date, so no harm in massaging it a little...

Re: cake toppings. Butter cream seems most common. Chinese bakery cakes are usually whipped cream and strawberries ( and very light sponge cake -- yum!), but I have never seen marzipan on a cake IRL ever.

 

I only remember Mrs. Hudson from Upstairs Downstairs making marzipan decorations for a wedding cake (James' and Hazel's?). Most people I know hate marzipan. I love it. Usually if there's an assorted box of See's around, I always get the marzipan. No competition. At all.

1 week is not "so late".

I was 3 weeks overdue (but that was the 60s). It used to be 2 weeks was the rule of thumb.

While I understand that most new moms go over their due date, I am beginning to suspect that the poor quality of Jill and Jessa's prenatal care is partially to blame here. For example, has Jessa had a single ultrasound performed by a qualified midwife or doctor, because the only ultrasounds that I have seen have come from that non-medical, boutique ultrasound place... Perhaps their projected due dates were really, really off.

Maybe I was hallucinating but I think I've seen those dripped things and I think they're premade, put in a display type freezer and dressed up a bit before service.

That yellow goop has to be your butterscotch. I hope.
