They'd told me they were making this year's Christmas Cake, but they changed their minds.
Instead they made a Chocolate Cake, which Boo Boo thought was a much better idea, as he could have some with his Tea.
He's no fool our Boo Boo.
As all good chefs know, tasting is an important part of the process.
And when it was ready, the cake disappeared; Boo Boo took it home, and only left one tiny slice for me!
I shall be having words with him. (I believe The Christmas Cake will be made later today)
What about Bunny does he not take part in the cooking sessions with Nana.ReplyDelete
This is Bunny; he's now known as Boo Boo. His little brother Mischa is still too small for cake making.Delete
Oh, does Mischa not have a nickname.Delete
enjoy your grandson. Does he get home schooled? Go to school in France?.ReplyDelete
I think he may be going to school in Holland next year. Nothing is certain as yet. We are teaching him to read etc.Delete
There is nothing like closeness to grandparents.ReplyDelete
Boo Boo comes down to see us most days. We play games together, Lady M bakes with him, and we have a lot of fun. It's perfect.Delete
Christmas cake or chocolate cake? Now there's a dilemma. Well, not really, chocolate cake please!ReplyDelete
You and Boo Boo would be best Kitchen mates.Delete
While Xmas cake has it's merits, I'm with Boo Boo. I'd take the chocolate cake home too.ReplyDelete
I'm in the other camp; I like rich fruit cakes, the others are a bit too sweet for me.Delete
Yes, I expect children will prefer chocolate cake. So Lady M will be making the Christmas cake later?ReplyDelete
I believe so; dried fruits have been soaking in Armagnac and fruit juice overnight, so something is afoot.Delete
I like the cake. In fact I'm a bit of a chocoholic on the quiet. Your blog page footer tells me I might also like Juncker. 🕷ReplyDelete
One of the things I need to eat (apparently) for my high blood pressure, is good quality dark chocolate. I have no problem with that.Delete
What's all this about you, me, and Juncker?? I see no ships!
Juncker has gone. Harry and Megs are down there now. Certainly a lot of celebrities here! 🏅🎖💄👑Delete
I specialise in them.Delete
Sad. Just one slice. Ah well, better for you than two slices - if only half as enjoyable.ReplyDelete
The little I had was very good. I quite expect the rest has already gone.Delete
Love for chocolateReplyDelete
Most children have it. I know I did when I was his age!Delete
I am with your grandson. Nothing beats chocolate.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen him this morning... maybe he's got stomach ache.Delete
Wish I lived next door, I love Chocolate cake.ReplyDelete
It was a goodie. I would have liked more.Delete
He beginning to look like at least one of his cousins in Oz is he not?ReplyDelete
I'm not sure, I think he looks like his Mum; Kellogg.Delete
Chocolate Boo-Boo cake outranks Christmas cake, any day.ReplyDelete
The Christmas Cake is now made. There is still a lot of 'anointing' with Armagnac to be done, so it'll be a while before we taste it. Luckily I like both, but the CC is an 'institution', more than just a cake.Delete
