I know it's officially Pancake Day and I ought to blog about Lent and pancakes (and I will), but first I have to tell you about cake. Specifically, cake from Del Aziz. This is a picture of a "slice" of Del Aziz carrot cake bought for me by my wonderful friend Tolu.
It looks pretty average in the photograph, but it really isn't. It
My first (proper) encounter with the Del Aziz bakery was on a lovely snowy day in December after a pretty special lunch with some friends. I didn't have a decent go at the cake that day, but I did note it's happy - making potential. So, I put "Get cake from Del Aziz" on my to do list. Well, thanks to Tolu, I have now crossed it off my to do list and set it as a weekly alarm on my iPhone instead.
Frippery? I think not...
