Welcome to our plot!

I'm Hazel, and in Nov 2006 my friend Jane and I took on a half plot at Hill Allotments, Sutton Coldfield - we want the satisfaction of growing and eating our own fruit and veg, and to improve our diet (and fitness!).

This is the story of what happened next...........

Marble Cake Update...

...if I'm being honest - it really doesn't look very good.

And that's an understatement.

It's early Sunday morning now, and I've had a real hum and har as to whether I could whip up another cake overnight as it were, then gave myself a stern telling off - get a grip, children in Africa are starving, and I'm worried about how attractive (or otherwise) is my marble cake ...?

I'll enter it in the Show anyway, of course, but as an aide memoire for next year USE THE 7.5" DEEP TIN NOT THE 8" SHALLOW TIN!!

This way I may avoid cake sticking to tin/overflowing tin/cracking on top issues.

Or not, maybe, but I guess that's all part of the fun!

Pip, pip!


  1. So how did it go? Don't keep us all in suspenders!

  2. As 'official photographer', big sis Helen took a load of photos of the Show, and as soon as she emails them to me, I'll be updating the blog (hopefully later today)...

    tee hee!

  3. I'm with Mrs Flummery - enquiring mind want to know. Did the marble Cake run amok?
