    Some of them are a little off, at least for me. Ive never heard Red Pepper refered to anything other than red pepper :/

    Up North we also call Spring Onions 'Scallions'

    They are called Bell peppers. Down south spring onions are not scallions.;)

    No they are not the same thing. You would use them as a substitute.

    That would be called bone marrow.

    Actually we would call it Fresh ginger which makes me think that I'll be working on a new UK/US

    Icing = Frosting

    However, Americans do use the phrase, "icing on the cake".

    Icing sugar = powdered sugar

    Also known as confectioner's sugar

    Not that it applies much to us but ground beef is, I believe, what we call mince. I've never heard anyone talk about "biscuit mixture", surely you would just call it dough?
     
  20. In Georgia, USA, they call it icing. I love it no matter what it's called. :D
