  1. Ummmmm yeahhhh! My little girl made this all by herself for me for my bday and I totally loved it. I don’t know if it is same recipe, but is close. She thought it was yucky, but I loved it. Perhaps more of an educated palette is needed to enjoy it? Either way, I vote thumbs up!:)

  2. Couldn’t resist posting this – it’s just so apt!

    I made a blog that no-one wants to see.
    I might as well have stripped and posted nude.
    I should’ve baked a chocolate cake for tea.

    I twittered, face-booked, tumblred, endlessly,
    but still it languishes in quietude.
    I made a blog that no-one wants to see.

    I promised video with poetry;
    no cliché, hackneyed rhyme or platitudes.
    I should’ve baked a chocolate cake for tea.

    My blog is but a trickle in the sea
    A place of literary solitude.
    I made a blog that no-one wants to see.

    I treasured all my followers, all three;
    and yet, with heavy heart, I must conclude
    I made a blog that no-one wants to see.
    I should’ve baked a chocolate cake for tea.
