It was very fortuitous that when I was helping out with a rush job of photocopying in the Reprographic Department of the Girls’ School yesterday that there was also a Macmillan Coffee Morning ……. and it would have been rude not to purchase a bit of cake!
However I got a little carried away! But there again I didn’t want to upset the feelings of any of the ladies when making my selection, I just couldn’t choose one over another ….. so I felt compelled to buy one of each, thus making everyone happy, including me and Darrell.
For once I told Darrell to throw caution to the wind and that it wouldn’t hurt to forgo our 5 a day for once, especially as it was for charity. I gave Darrell the first pick and he selected a walnut muffin.
He then watched me as I made my first selection
Which was an exceedingly moist piece of cake which actually did contain glace cherries, apple and sultanas, how brilliant is that?
Darrell’s second choice was a morish slice of tea loaf, whilst I opted for a rock bun, both of which contained more sultanas ….. bonus!
We then selected a muffin each …… nom, nom, nom!
Followed by a slice of Cherry Genoa and a morsel of shortbread.
“Very nice” said Darrell as we washed it all down with a nice cup of tea.
“ It’s hard to decide which one was my favourite”
It has to be said that the ladies at the Girls’ School do make exceedingly good cakes"!
