When I was a small boy I used to go to visit my granny and she always brought out the cake selection around tea time. We used to get all sorts and I guess that meringues and chocolate eclairs and battenburg cake were typical of the family 'treats' of the 1960s. These were usually accompanied with a cup of hot tea - even in the heat of summer - and heaps of sugar. It is a wonder I have any teeth left! This is just a short blog to inspire people to share their memories of cakes and pastries.
Bring on the cakes!
