We have finally come to the end of the Castle Greysquirrel Rocky Road we made for Hugh for his birthday, let’s just say….. to be honest….. and modest ……. we do make exceedingly good celebratory Rocky Road, but there again, we can, at times, be our own best fan club!
Hugh had taken about three quarters of the box with him back to Notting Hill, to eat, he said “…… between zee meetings” and to share some with “….. zee lady unt gentleman” who do for him in London. “I can not believe zat you got sooooooo many packets of zee sweeties in juste one cake!” Hugh had sighed after his first chunk adding “Oow, oow, oow …..sacre bleu ……..c’est très très magnifique, and ‘ow you say nom diddy nom nom no?”
…… the combination of everything we put in was a triumph, from the Maltesters, Milky Bar Buttons, and Toffee Crisp Pieces to the mahooooosive bag of mini marshmallows, Cadbury Chocolate Fingers and crushed up “moo cow biscuits” (malted milk).A cake, not for the faint hearted or calorie conscious, to be eaten with a modicum of moderation and restraint …… but of which, we believe, is entirely worthy of a self awarded 500 million and one noms on our expanding Richter Scale of homemade noms!!!!!
