This is Unacceptable.
Ok people, we need to stand up and fight. The bakers are now trying to step in on our territory. This aggression will not stand, specifically because it is going to soften and collapse.
This so called "Coffee Cup" was designed by Enrique Luis Sardi for Italian coffee company Lavazza. It is a cookie, not a cup. The cookie is lined with a sugar coating to hold liquid and keep the cup from dissolving. Bummer for them, real cups don't have that problem...
Now I'm sure some of you are saying, "But Matt, you've discussed cookie based pieces before?" Well that was an accessory. You don't see us cermicists trying to make clay based bread, do you?
Ok Bakers, keep to what your good at, let the professionals handle the dinnerware.
