    Nope, no time and no ingredients left- just plastered the slightly split ganache on top and sprinkled some chopped nuts on - it won’t have won any points for style, but it should have tasted ok when they cut it up, and hopefully it brought in a pound or so for the Macmillan charity coffee morning. Well it might have looked a mess and won no prizes for execution, but it all disappeared so it must have tasted ok. Next time I must make something in advance and not do the last minute scramble.
  2. I think I’ll wait and see whether anyone else keels over before I redo anything. I hope we aren’t going to have a rerun of last years GP .........

    Why is it that a cake recipe which works perfectly well for ordinary occasions becomes possessed when you’re asked to make it for a special occasion/ charity event? The blasted thing is lopsided and the icing has gone wrong - whhhyyyy?

    I would be overwhelmed with gratitude if they could rework those jumps to even approach her spins etc. She’s climbing a higher mountain than Medvedeva, and trying to do it within a few weeks which seems to me to be unlikely to succeed. Whatever happens, she’s incredibly enjoyable to watch, and I really hope she proves me wrong.

    The hands are always ...... exquisite ...... the costumes, especially those selected by the sponsors less reliably so....

    From my experience among my friends if the mother is the person who is living in a foreign environment the children will be bi lingual- if it’s the dad it’s not happened among my acquaintance ( French, Spanish, Maltese) - and those examples are a lot less difficult in terms of the gulf between the languages than an English/ Japanese interface.

    I’m reserving judgement til I see it full length and in action- there are a number of costumes that look great in a still photo and terrible once there’s movement involved. I do like the colours - still not sure about the graduated colour on the pants until we get a full length photo.

    No - I know it’s hard to admit it, but that one was abysmal - no one could have made that monstrosity acceptable.

    Given Xylitols track record be very grateful....remember the white bodysuit with gold lace which even he couldn’t carry off?
  11. SA has finally popped up on the Eurosport player schedule - small hours of Saturday morning and late Saturday evening. I’m away, staying where there’s WiFi but it’s going to be a busy weekend - hope to catch some of it.
  12. Done mine using a pin and a blindfold for ice dance and pairs ( apart from T&M) I dont recognise a lot of the names - it will be interesting to see some new faces, though I won’t see much of SA at the weekend.

    Sad to hear it - I have never heard a soprano who could equal her.
