Wedding cake.

Today was the first day the whole country was locked down with the new measures to control the spread of Covid 19.

Powers have been brought in to prevent us from going out unless for essential supplies of food, medicine and fuel.

I woke early, just before six o clock. The birds were singing loudly before it dawned on me that I couldn’t hear rush hour starting on the road outside.

Just birds.

Alongside the lockdown, weddings are being postponed as to prevent gatherings of people.

My neighbour, who makes wedding cakes, left me a gift outside our house.

After a brief knock, we opened our door to see a large white box inside which contained a large, white wedding cake.

There was much excitement as we carved into the giant cake as the slices were enormous and very delicious.

Also sadness that for now, we all remain separate while we wait for the virus to peak.

Cat versus cake.

Angie bakes six layers of different coloured sponge cake and leaves them to cool on the kitchen counter.

Renee cat comes along and takes a nibble out of EACH layer.

Calculate:

A) The level of swearing from Angie at the discovery of nibbled cake.

B) The exact percentage of remaining cake.

C) The exact amount of extra buttercream needed to cover the nibbled cake.

D) The amount of tea needed to calm Angie down.

Return of the cake.

I’m delighted to tell you that after a thirty day absence, cake has returned to the Stevens’ household.

It’s been far too long, where have you been!

Christmas cake.

Mixed, brandied (with pleasure), and baked.
Marzipaned and iced.
Decorated and pockmarked by children with sticky fingers..
Not to be eaten in slivers, only wedges.
