as I’d hoped.
The cake did look lovely with its marzipan topping and egg wash
but I hadn’t appreciated just how quickly marzipan burns under the grill.
On the upside, it still tasted lovely and I’ll know to keep a closer eye on it next time.
Grandma and Grandpa came to lunch today.
Grandpa and the boy played chess, then draughts, then the girl played Grandpa at draughts. Grandma heroically played pick up sticks with whichever child wasn’t involved with Grandpa. Thank you both, my two had a lovely afternoon (and did eventually calm down from their marzipan high).
