Last night myself and my 2 daughters (4 and 1) decided we would bake their mummy a cake for Valentines. Mrs Wil works on a Thursday evening, so whilst being a little early, it seemed like a good time to bake a cake and keep it a suprise until Saturday.

So, after eldest had been to tennis, we trawled down to Tesco, bought the bits-n-bobs required (eggs and a Jane Asher Lemon Drizzle Cake packet mix ;)) and went home to bake.
The girls got washed up and I laid all the ingredients out with the bowls etc. Eldest put the mix in the bowl, followed by 2 eggs (youngest was "helping" by eating anything she could reach), some water and then 1 3/4 fl/oz of oil. Odd I thought, must be to keep the cake nice and moist, so I grabbed the bottle of Olive oil, measured it out (thinking, blimey, thats an odd smell) and Freya poured it in and started mixing.

After a good bit of stirring and mixing, Freya tasted it, spat it out and screemed "AAHHHGGGggggggg IT BURNS" and dived into the sink to wash her mouth out. I gave it a bit of a taste, and by God she was right, it really did burn. Checking the Olive oil bottle again, it turned out to have a clove of garlic sat in the bottom................bugger.

Seems as though garlic and lemon, when mixed make a rather nasty (and probably corrosive) burning mixture which undoubtedly would make a splendid cake, had I not thrown it in the bin in a rage.

We ended up making a victoria sponge with flour and stuff :( Looks good though :)

Just slightly out of order as far as statements go...

I like garlic, maybe it would have been ok when it was cooked.....well, maybe not :)

Spare a thought for my poor family - when I was living at home we were forced to consume my sister's many cooking attempts. Here are just some of them:

Harsh but essentially fair.

It is vital to teach children one of the fundamentals you must come to terms with in life: You will regularly be forced to deal with something nasty because of someone ELSES stupidity.

It's something most parents forget about.

And if your daughter hasn't got a fat throat, try ramming a cucumber in there first. It should widen the hole a little.









(Once again it seems my posts need disclaimers and self editing because of people's either lack of humour or blind stupidity. I'm only ever being light hearted and only ever teasing - just look at the last sentence of this post and think about what I could normally have said. I'm bloody taming myself these days and you still take everything like it's life or death angry spells. For those that are stupid, I could have said PENIS.)

And for those who don't think I have a sense of humour, I could've called Wazzer a complete fucking moron, but I didn't.

I've not read that but I have read 'How to lose friends and alienate people' By Toby Young. It's a very good read. :)

Heh still do that and nearly 26.

And swift, if you have to go to such extreme measures to explain the fact that you arent so 'hardcore' when it comes to 'humour' as you used to be, its time to take a step out of your own ass and mingle properly.

Even if it is just a joke, if someone told me to ram a cucumber down my daughters throat id be a little annoyed, and also joking abouut the daughters fat throat is silly and pointles. I dont even have kids

Lemon and garlic are two parts of a rather, how to say, nasty mixture that can cause second degree burns in an instant.

Not telling the rest of the stuff involved, but you all own them :p

Swift please grow up. You arent funny and your comments say more about you repressed childhood experiences than you should really be divulging to anyone other than a shrink.
