She has pestered incessantly for the last few weeks. Pottering through Mumma's books an image was found, an idea formed and the constant chatter about them began in an effort to wear down my sensibilities. It worked.
Even though all my knowledge of wholefoods and sugar was nudging me incredulously, I silenced them all with a, "Today...what's the harm?!"
With gay abandon we swam cubes of buttery sponge into a luscious pool of raspberry jelly and rolled them merrily amongst snowflakes. They will certainly not take out any food styling awards, nor did the globules of set jelly clinging to squashed cake do much for my appetite, but my girl adored it all.
Sponge cake recipe from Nigella Express; a food processor version that is seriously the easiest and best sponge cake I have ever wrapped my laughing gear around. Pink lamington "how to" from Meet Me At Mikes.
