Can you guess what these little babies are called? More on that later....
Over the weekend I decided to exhume my mother-in-law's mother's Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium from its little box and have a look through for any interesting baked ideas. Whenever I see old cookbooks in book shops etc, I am reminded of Nigella's stories of where she found some of her most prepared dishes and I now look to these tatted books with hope and inspiration.
The Box the book was delivered in.
So I found some really interesting creations. Like this cake adorned with marshmallows, tinned peaches and sponge fingers.... mmmmmm not my kinda cake and I am thinking the beginning of the processed food mothers!
Thrown together cake!
Easy for Halloween!
I have always wanted to make a fluffy icing cake - PERFECTION for Christmas!
How times have changed. I do not expect to see these labelled 'gaily' on a dessert table any time soon!
