Thank you for popping in. If you have time to leave a comment - I appreciate it. My oldie is another cake and is hosted by Erika at Snappycrafts. I haven't shown it on my blog before, but it must be least thirty years old- not the cake Mrs Duck! but when the cake was made and eaten.
I was asked to make a fruit cake for our local Hospital Fete. I can't remember if it was for a raffle or "guess the weight" compo. The idea was in one of Jane Asher's books - Party Cakes. I still have the book and was first published in 1982.
I hope you like it. It raised a smile and some money for a good cause. PS "he" is supposed to have a thermometer in "his" mouth, not a cigarette. Saying that, at the time patients and staff were allowed to smoke on the wards. It is a scanned photo, so the quality isn't the best. My laptop is playing up, so I may be absent for my next post (Thu) I need to get my techie mate to look at it. It won't scan and sometimes won't recognise new photos on my camera. We're off shopping later and may have time to drop off a load of wool/yarn to our local Wot-Ever Scrapstore Occasionally I will go and take a look at their stuff. Recently I bought (because I'm not a member) some Do-Craft chalks and a pack of lilac card blanks for about £3. Have a great week end what ever you're up to
