Cake Off


It has been a month of absences and missed birthdays, the crew that set out 5 weeks ago for Costa Rica were stranded in Madrid on the return journey so a filming trip in Spain was scrambled earlier than originally planned now everyone is late and has missed events and each other.




Back together in the production office we know several ways to celebrate – but it always starts with cake. Whiplash set the ball rolling yesterday with a classic carrot cake topped with her Ultimate Frosting Experience. Today I responded with a sticky ginger and lemon cake*. Tomorrow belongs to Cake Boy who has promised us his famous strawberry cream sponge ...


*follow the link and add ginger wine, more lemon juice/zest and chopped walnuts (worked fine without the apple)

  4. Seeing c*ke mentioned so many times in one place is going to send MJ into an apoplectic fit!

  6. Mrs Dilo has developed an addiction to ginger wine the Christmass before last, so I'd better keep her as far away as possible from that recipe.

  9. Screamish - Humans can make such things - give it a go, it's dead easy peasy

    Veggie - as for Screamish - go on you have to do it.

    xl - I have my camera poised

    Alphawoman - we are too fat to fit any more people in the premises at the moment. Will call you when we've been on a salad diet.

    Zena - we will make more next time to come here

    Gadj - spoilsport!

    Synchy - and a cuppa tea natch!

  10. I noticed that lemon ginger cake is preceded by the word "squidgy"

    I want squidgy cake and I want it now!

  11. If I ever get to realise this secret plan* of mine to open a cafe, I might need to talk you into working for me.

    *Well, not so secret anymore, I guess.

  12. I am now overcome with the desire to get my pinny on and cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  13. The next time I make a cake - which doesn't happen often now due to WW - I will do the ginger and lemon one. I've never had them together and it sounds lovely

  14. Arghhh - just when I thought I couldn't be tempted... My diet is RUINED (again!). May as well pour my self a glass of ginger wine to go with the cake then ;-)

  15. Nursey - "squidgy" cake is the best sort

    Met Mum - sounds good to me


    Eryl - irresistible isn't it?


    Frenchie - it lasted exactly half an hour outside the oven.

    Ange - give in - you need the calories

  16. I'm a whore for anything involving cake. Dudes aren't meant to have sweet tooths (sweet teeth just doesn't seem right) but hell, cake is a whole other thing. And you made me salivate like a pervert with that description. And cake's an all purpose delight. You can eat it with some coffee or tea or you can spread it on the ripe bazoombas of a ladyfriend and eat it off.

    I heard. Not that I'd ever do that.

  18. Everything MUST begin with cake - It is the law!

  19. Welcome to you Tony - always good to have a new cake fan around

    MJ - do you need me to pass the medication?

    ED - It is the law - we made it so!
