    chocolate frosting, durian (omg, NO!) rocky mountain oysters and Limburger cheese??? Oh, you have a really evil mind!! :-) That is not a combo I would ever like to see tried. Except for the chocolate frosting, I consider the rest not fit to eat. Your list for a basket, I think, is probably the worst I've ever seen. Congratulations on the devious combination.
