Bakewell


#61

Mastication is a joy. When I had my face re-arranged a while ago, all I could eat was soup and mush various for about 3 months afterwards. That put me off anything that isn’t chewable for life.

Mashed Bakewell and cream is the sort of crap you will eat when you are in a nursing home in a few years, best avoided until then. :+1:

Boundaries must be pushed and conformity be damned. What say ye to a sweet apricot jam instead of standard raspberry?


#63

No!


#64

And so it begins. Just fuck off with your exotic flights of fancy.


#65

You all said a brown ceiling wouldn’t work…

Innovate dont imitate.


#66

Says the man who denounced the very idea of a chocolate trifle.


#67

Gateax. Some lines shouldnt be blurred.


#68

Gateaux.

Funnily enough the recipe I’m looking at specifies Raspberry jam which does seem right.

Apricot jam is indicative of a man who has too many foreign holidays.

If I can dig out out some blind baking beans, I may try to make one tomorrow.

I don’t know if that is even how you would bake the base. I’m working on pure instinct here.


#70

it’s the only way to bake. Eyes closed, full Zen.


#71

I tried that once… :sob:


#72

It involves using your nose as well. :smiley:


#73

I give fair warning, those of a nervous disposition look away now…

Un-iced squares of disappointment.


#74

I went to Bakewell once. I tried a traditional tart. I was disappointed. No icing. No cherry.

Cheap, iced and with a glacé cherry are the only requirements.


#75

They are so ashamed of them they can’t quite bring themselves to call them Bakewell.


#76

Prepare to meet the holy trinity. Bakewell, cats and vodka.


#77

Heston should be held to account for his perversions


#78

I agree. But Bakwell vodka. :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

I have some of the real stuff and it very much tastes like bakewell:

But Heston’s has added cat. The cat make me lol. I can’t stop lol-ing at the fucking cat’s expression. :rofl:


#79

that cat reminds me of Marley - although he is still in training to become my butler and deliver cherry bakewell tarts on a silver platter


#80

The expression has me also, but the state of those collars. :slight_smile:
