Can I use this construction with an infinitive as the "object" of the liking?

Can I use this construction with an infinitive as the "object" of the liking?

I know how to use aimer + infinitive to express liking.  J'aime manger!  Par exemple.  How about Manger me plait?   Probably not, but just wondering.

Hi Stuart, 

You can do but more in written form although the 'manger me plaît' seems a bit strange to me using this structure.

I think you would say: " J'aime manger"...

You might say, "Danser le tango me plaît énormément" ...

Hope this helps!

You would probably want to say -

C'est ce que je croyais = That's what I thought
