the first one tastes good ..... not much of it left now though lol!


??? Have I missed the joke? How can you know what the first one tastes like? It needs the month or 6 weeks soak to moisten and develop, doesn't it?

The fruit had been soaked in brandy for 12 hours prior to cooking so although not mature we ate it and it did taste lovely, in fact the last piece is in Johns packed lunch today.

The latest cake needed the space while it matures and is fed with brandy ...... nothing for it but to eat the smaller one.

Back home again from New York yesterday AM, the car started first time after being in jetpark 3 for a week cheers not that I expected anything less but you always have a niggling little doubt at times like that but at £25 for the week its a lot cheaper than a taxi both ways.
Everything went to plan as far as the wedding was concerned, the weather co-operated and it didn't snow until the next day, lots of The twitter thread - Page 32 3965789718 and The twitter thread - Page 32 40847162 and more The twitter thread - Page 32 1912976309 Stayed in the hotel the next day The twitter thread - Page 32 2922923974 What a Face but it was snowing Shocked

Fed mine this morning Jake, already through 3/4 of the first bottle lol! The fruit did soak up around half a bottle though Laughing

Currently making sugar paste holly leaves as I plan to have a lot it could take a while as I'm individually painting them all. I'll do a batch every few days then start on the other stuff as it gets monotonous. We're going two tier this year bounce

Lovely picture Jake The twitter thread - Page 32 115684958

Oh I love snow and I had lots of it on our wedding day Very Happy

thought I'd put my recipe for my Christmas cake
1 or 2 High quality Rum
1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
2 Large eggs
1 cup Dried Fruit
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts

Before you start, sample the Rum to check its quality. " Good isn't it?". Now go ahead and select a large mixing bowl, measuring cup, etc. Check the rum again- it must be just right. Be sure the rum is of the highest quality - pour 1 (one) level cup of rum into a glass and drink it. Repeat. using an electric mixer, beat the eggs into a large fluffy bowl, add one seaspoon of tuger and beat again. meanwhile, Add the tow (2) arge leggs, 2 cups of fried druit and beat again. Sift 1/2 pint of lemon Juice. Fold in chopped butter and melted nuts. Add one sablespoon of brown tuger, or whatever colour you can find. Mix well. Grease aven and turn cake pan to 350 gredees. Now pour the whole mess into the oven. Perhaps it would be better to forget the coven and the reke. Just check the Rum again and go to Bed!!!!!

We're back from a classic Dandy camp near Oxford for the cars photo shoot, it was postponed from two weeks ago and also changed venue.

The weather was truly awful, wet, cold and windy, but despite that the day was fab and we had a great time. cheers

Did I miss the preamble to this?
How come you have dismissed Bob's services?
Has he been less than a faithful and loving Dandy?
You have not had your head turned by those flash folding campers have you?
They are all decorative and suave but are fickle and will abandon you to rain and the nasty draughts.


Poor Bob. Oh Bob! Dur der dut der der der dur, der der. Dur der der dut dut dut dut dut.

Sorry that was "Oh Bod" easy mistake to make.
