Cake Overload

 We invited our new neighbours round for coffee this morning. We needed to discuss with them the plans for taking down the three large trees that border both properties, plus we thought it would be a good opportunity to get to know them better.

I am most definitely not a good baker so I went to the local Co-Op and bought a lemon drizzle cake, a coffee and walnut cake and some Border Biscuits dark chocolate gingers to go with the coffee.

They only nibbled one small piece of cake each so now P and I will be forced to finish off the rest all by ourselves this weekend.

How dreadful.

  8. My wife makes Lemon drizzle cakes. She uses a Mary Berry recipe, and they are very very good!

  9. We think it has all been said. Food waste is a dreadful thing so pleased to know you have a plan. Now about the trees....

  10. Glad that the meeting went well and you are now faced with manfully (and womanfully) having to deal with the cake mountain! Enjoy.

  12. What a pain to have to eat it up yourselves. I am always dieting so if cake is made for visitors we insist they take the remains with them!

  14. Oh, no! How tiresome of them. I never seem to have that problem here, especially when the grandkids visit.
