Melissa’s Rock Buns

Today I received a call from my daughter, who is at University in Glasgow, requesting the recipe for her Great Grandmother Sybil’s rock buns. I have posted the recipe before so you can have a go if you wish. Here is a picture of ┬áMelissa’s efforts. Look scrummy.

Costco Cake

There are times when all you can do is buy a cake off the shelf. Today my daughter secured a place at the prestigious University of Glasgow;┬áthe 4th oldest University in an english speaking country. Given that we were not certain of what the outcome might have been I was unable to bake in advance. Enter Costco. Love it or not their cakes tick many boxes…

  • Impact
  • Sugar hit
  • Size
  • Flavour
  • VFM

This came off the shelf – no need to pre order.

When she cut everyone a slice her brother noticed that she had left the shape of the letter ‘M’ in the cake (she is called Melissa). “Spooky or what” he repeated…

well done Melissa we are so proud of you. xxx
