My name is Lucia and I live in Katy, TX.  I would like to one day hopefully own a business making Bem Casados for weddings and baby showers.  I love this site and feel I can learn a lot here.  Hope everyone has a great day.

Welcome to ChefTalk. Your passion about having a business dedicated to Bemcasados is exciting. Are you thinking of Brazillian or something else. The next time you have 3 hours, drive to Dallas and I would love to talk to you. I'm also down there a lot. There is a cup of coffee and a snack waiting for you anytime.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your post.  Yes, I'm talking about the Brasilian Bem Casados.  I'm from there and have had this strong desire to make them for a long time now and finally got the recipe from a cousin's daughter who is also a baker in Sao Paulo.  So hopefully I can get this thing going if I could just get the measurement down right.  I had asked a question about my measurement problem and a nice man answered it but I'm a little confused on what he means with his answer.  I think I need to take a measurement class.  Anyway, thanks for the invite.  Have a great evening.

By the way, went to you and your wife's website and you have very beautiful cakes.  If I had known about your site when I got married, I would have contacted you.  I love anything wedding.

Lucia,

My apologies if I confused you on measurements. Tell me what is confusing you and I'll try to explain.

My guess is the fact that 1 ounce (volume) is not always equal to 1 ounce (weight), as it depends on what you are measuring.

It is true that 1 ounce (volume) of water weighs 1 ounce (weight) but one ounce (volume) of honey weights about 1 1/2 ounces (weight)

Hi Pete, it is so hard to explain.  What I'm trying to get is quantity measurement and was wondering if that is the same as weight measurement.  Now to your post above, is the reason that honey weighs more is because it is heavier than water?  But this post explains it better and I do want to stress that I think you are really nice answering my question.  I now see that I should have taken cooking class.  Oh well.  And you don't have to apologize.
