Chris Aranda, Mary Carmen Gonzalez, and Ro Zinniger all spoke to me as representatives of Satin Ice, and Mary Carmen is providing a 2lb bucket of Satin Ice burgundy fondant for the secret contest hidden in the episode. The first person to answer the question by emailing me at podcast@eat-the-evidence.com before March 22, 2018 will win. Contest is open worldwide. Don’t make me type legaleeze here, it was an off-the-cuff joke that Mary Carmen is graciously offering an actual prize for, so nobody get angry or sue us because we have no money, just fondant. The answer to the contest question and the winner’s name will be announced in the March 22 episode.
