I have a story in the current My Weekly Special. As you might have already deduced from the title, and that lovely illustration, it’s about cake. Lots of cakes actually, and yes, most of them are iced!
The idea for this story had been in my mind for a long time before I wrote it – since attending the wedding of two of our friends several years ago. The cake they chose was far from traditional, but was perfect for them, and absolutely delicious. It made me think about what our food choices, especially those for important events, say about us and our personalities.
This was our wedding cake. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. (It was sweet, if that helps!)
I enjoy writing about food. Some of the reviewers for my novels, particularly Escape To The Country have mentioned getting hungry as they read! I’ve written recipes too. Here’s one (free) for onion bhajis for those of you who prefer something savoury.
