What a busy day I have had.
I must say thankyou to Alice for her set of instructions re Links. I am still trying, (Yes GOM, I am very trying!)& have now written to Judith for help.
I finally got my haircut... wish I could say it would be something nice like h & b's Gwynnie- but pudding basin sounds more like it. Never mind, it will be months before I need to return, tee hee.
I have also made a fresh Chocolate Souffle Roll, which I am about to try to fill & ice, so I can photograph it for this blog.
We had Small Grandson here this morning, & he was full of beans as usual. He decided Toast & Honey was the brekky favourite, & then he discovered I had not planted the seeds he had found, so I got a lecture. A further lecture ensued when he discovered the old broken clothes dryer is still on the wall. He said "I told you to go to the shop and buy another one! He watered my pot plants- which Hoodlum Leo has been de-potting these past few mornings, & bringing the empty pots inside to chew upon, leaving soil all over the lounge floor.
I was busy trying to work out links!!grrrrrr!!
Ok, here I am back again.
Really this is for Verniciousknids!
This is the plate I have served this cake on, ever since I got the recipe. It was given to us by the lovely French couple we bought our first house off, all those years ago. I have always loved it, because my mother's first name was Rita, & this is the name of the design of this little plate.
This does not seem to appear all that glamourous in these photos, but it does taste divine. I didnt manage to whip the cream quite as much as it needs, but.... never mind!
I am not always a measurerer- I tend to slosh & chuck, but I do measure very accurately for the cake, but tend to do my own thing in the icing stakes. My mother always had nice neat folded little butter wrappers, but I am somewhat phobic of dairy, so I dont eat or use butter. ( I confess, I dont often eat this cake either, due to the cream content!) but it is quite versatile in what you can do with it as regards filling, icing etc. I hope you enjoy it, should you try it. I am sure cream laced with Kahlua or similar adds to the cake!!! We have tried it, & yes, it is to die for!
