The BBC this morning has a news story about the royal wedding cake. But more interesting than the details of the traditional wedding cake is the news that there will be a second wedding cake, a “family childhood favourite of the prince’s”, an unbaked chocolate biscuit cake made to a secret royal family recipe.

Royal-warrant holder McVitie’s will be making it; they say it contains dark chocolate and crushed Rich Tea biscuits, so I assume that it will be a kind of tiffin.

I like the idea that the royal family have secret recipes, and that royal warrant holders create bespoke products for them.

Now I must buy some Rich Tea biscuits and some chocolate…

It is [personal profile] kateaw’s birthday on Sunday 25th. To celebrate we’re planning to have lunch out at Pizza Express in St Andrews at 1pm, and then tea and cake at home at about 4.30pm.

All who know Kate are welcome to join us; please let me know if you’d like to come to lunch, tea, or both.

[personal profile] kateaw painted the bathroom and the downstairs loo this week. No more magnolia! Now they are sparkly white. She also dumped the carpets; she’s going to pop some tiles down when we’ve found ones that will suit. With the flexing floors in this house, flexible tiles would be a good idea (to avoid the cracking problems we’ve had with the kitchen tiles). Kate has been looking at whitened cork tiles; some samples arrived earlier in the week.

With no carpet on the floor, the bathroom and loo look bare and sound echoey, bringing back memories of the way that they were when I first moved into the house eleven years ago.

We went out to Ian & Liz’s for tea and cakes today. Yummy yummy yummy. Tea was served from satisfyingly large tea pots, and Liz was a whizz at baking.

Kate finished decorating the Dalek just in time for the party. There
are a lot of noisy little girls in the house at the moment.

One advantage of working from home is that I've just had the privilege of scraping out a bowl of cake mixture. My considered opinion is that cake mixture is even nicer than cake.

Beth and [personal profile] kateaw are busy making a Dalek cake for Beth's fifth birthday tomorrow. It will be pink. Beth likes pink Dalek cakes.

Here is a piccie of her cake from a couple of years ago. If all goes well, tomorrow I'll post a photo of this year's creation.

Beth’s Dalek cake!
