Let Them Eat Cake.......

Don't worry, I'm not trying to compete with Lottie, over at Simply Living....In fact I've never baked a cake in my life.

I have however done a few small favours for Peter "The Plotboss" just lately, and also donated a sack of Winter Festival squashes for the stall he and Jo are running at a Macmillan Cancer Support day.

In return, this morning I received this quite unexpected and most welcome homebaked gift!

It seems Jo is a bit of a whizz at this sort of thing, and has made a lot of cakes for the fund raiser.


The kettle is shortly about to boil, and I shall then conduct some very in depth research into whether it is better to eat it plain, or with butter..... I anticipate my deliberations may take quite some time.

Ah, the joys of the allotment economy eh!.............................

Nothing greases the skids better than a bit of home baking!

Just out of curiosity, was it better with or without butter?

It was pretty magnificent either way Peggy...a real triumph of the art. Just depends on how much you like butter I suppose. Personally speaking, I'd butter a glass of water if I could, so I prefer it with...but maybe some more testing is required....

I thought you had taken up cake making - did you save a slice for me

Great photos as usual.

Your comment about "buttering a glass of water" had me in stitches! I can identify with that very strongly.
