She begged me not to, and even offered to simply spit into the pan which would have been just as effective, but a swift knee to the uterus sealed the deal.

When we need to thicken sauces or soups I sometimes see my mama use cornflower. She puts a teaspoonful or so into a cup, dribbles a little cold water in from the tap and mixes it into a sort of paste, then stirs it into whatever needs thickened. Are those other methods mentioned above better (or "more necessary")?

Let's talk cakes, buns and biscuits! Who here bakes? Besides making bitchin' chocolate cakes when I was a kid I haven't done much of it myself, but I've got a load of awesome recipes. I'll post a shortbread one later, it makes for some kick-ass bickies.
