I appear to be married to a cake thief.
On Sunday, I didn’t go to church or to the bring and share lunch afterwards. My good friend Jen decided that Mr WF ought to return with some cake for me. They then had a very long conversation about which sort of cake I would prefer and Jen wrapped it in tin foil to stop Mr WF from eating it on the way home (apparently he threatened that this may happen).
So, there was a lovely piece of cake sat in some tin foil in the kitchen. I meant to take it to work with me on Monday (and Tuesday) but forgot. Tuesday evening I fancied some cake, went into the kitchen and started hunting for it. It wasn’t where is had been. Nor was it in either of the 2 cake-containing tins in the kitchen. I asked Mr MF if he had seen it. He looked rather guilty and sheepish and said that it had been sat there for a whole day (which I had been at work for all of) and he had thought I didn’t want it and had eaten it. I still do not even know what that lovely piece of cake looked liked. I have been told that it was a victoria sponge of some sort, but now I will never know.
Mr WF really felt very very guilty and was very sorry for stealing the cake of his lovely wife and he immediately offered to bake me a cake this weekend. I immediately accepted this offer as 1) I know that Mr WF has never baked a cake before and 2) I think that it is a very important skill to learn (and one that is very close to my heart). I am not expecting a disaster as I know that he is very good at following recipes.
On Saturday, Jen and I will be heading off for some Hobbycraft action, leaving Mr WF baking. Who knows what we will find on our return! Would it be over ambitious to expect this Valentines cake? Or am I more likely to get something like this? Hopefully I will be able to provide photgraphic evidence later on next week.
