I know yet another Cafe C post , but sadly at the moment I stalk the corridors of international Finance Technology by day and spend most of my evenings in the Cafe C kitchens slaving over a hot salad bowl .Therefore I have nothing else to blog about , so get over it already, nobody died (Yet !)
Anyway Last night we had a kids birthday party and Mr C decided on the retro classic a Knickerbocker Glory for desert .
It was a real nostalgia trip , I remember these from childhood Wimpy Bar Birthday treats.
We managed to produce a majestic replica right down to the suspicious looking tinned 'fruit cocktail' and jelly base , topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream , more fruit'n'jelly , a scoop of raspberry ripple , chocolate sauce and a frothing crown of squirty cream . Tastefully decorated with the ubiquitous fan wafer and a chocolate and wafer tube.
It made me quite misty eyed to see the next generation slurping their way to the dodgy fruit base with gusto and then poking at it with squeals of disgust.
Those are childhood memories worth having : - )
Its Singles Night at Cafe C tonight
I shall stay safely locked in the kitchen while 'Desperate of Dorchester' lurks without. To venture forth would be like throwing fresh meat to a hungry pride of lions
My popularity is a curse
