I should have remembered...

...that measuring and mixing is very relaxing
(even if there is no chocolate involved)
but if you always use the wrong size tin
the cake will always be the wrong shape
and if you try and eat the cake
as soon as it comes out of the oven
it will fall apart in your hand
but it will still taste
just as good.

  2. A cake looking as good as that doesnt need the right sized tin....I always have to make a spare Christmas cake because I have to nibble straight away...

  4. It looks very good indeed... I wish I could have a piece now with my cuppa. All the cake in the house has gone!

  5. 7:30 a.m., heading downstairs to make a pot of coffee. I believe in magic, but must prepare myself in case a cake like Alice's cake is not on my counter.

  7. Cake is a pleasure to be enjoyed without rules and so much the better in its homebaked lovliness.

  10. It's fine if it falls apart. Handfuls of crumbs have no calories - you never see them listed in Weightwatchers books.
