Now I am no domestic goddess when it comes to the kitchen, the reason why you will never find a recipes/cooking blog post on here. I do also however have an extra disadvantage and that my friends is the sponge eating gremlin who lives in my cooker.

There was no repairing these bad boys and the gremlin had made short work of the middle so I had no choice but to rush out for more ingredients and do the whole thing again. This time however with the gremlin having a full belly they came out ok - hoorah! So I managed to tackle the icing and with lots of cursing and rolling pin bashing the cake was ready:

Maybe next year I'll buy one ;o)
