Bargain alert! I can vouch for Jane Brocket's cherry cake, so I was tempted when I saw her Vintage Cakes book reduced to £4 today in M&S. The cover of the M&S edition, sadly, is like a Cath Kidston car crash and not nearly as attractive as the original, but otherwise it's just the same (except that they've deleted Jane's list of recommended stockists, clearly a case of M&S sour grapes as they didn't feature on it). If you can live with an excess of doilies, I'm sure the cakes will taste just as good!

'Cath Kidston car crash' snort.

I know! Maybe it's the alliteration but that struck me as really funny too.

What Sue said!

I am not entirely sure of what Cath Kidston is...

Ladies, I take it that our CK days are behind us!

Toffeeapple, I don't know how you have escaped - you clearly inhabit a superior aesthetic zone - but think globally mass-produced fake vintage and the same blue rosebuds from here to Tokyo - and you're on the right track.
