We now have a world exclusive for you, not even our special BAKE OFF judge Jeanne has seen this yet! I am a little scared myself! But in the spirit of fun – which is what this weekend is all about – here is something we hope will make you smile!
We have already featured three amazing WordPress poets this weekend:
At very short notice, we found ourselves with a slight scheduling issue this weekend, and not knowing who we could ask at the very last minute to think up a poem for the BAKE OFF. Yet, wanting to keep to the plan of having a least two poems each day, with the clock ticking, a rather dubious duo teamed up to try to produce a poem – of sorts – to commemorate their baking adventures in the name of the WordPress community!
Yes…if you have not guessed already, Gary and Mel have ventured into the world of verse and between them have actually written a poem.! Please don’t look so scared! It’s not as terrible as I was expecting it to be when we set out. It even rhymes!
Gary and Hawklad were coming all the way down from Yorkshire for afternoon tea But when Mel looked in the fridge there was nothing but cabbage and an old piece of brie After rustling up some up some loose change and running down to the shops she was all sweaty Her panic passed when she found all the ingredients for a caramel betty But Mel would soon need to panic as they arrived with homemade weaponised baking Cream scones resembling hand grenades just handling would a dangerous undertaking An angry Nettle spongecake so full of attitude that it had tattoos and a pair of bovver boots And don’t mention the Soufflé with a half life of thousand years as it continues to pollute Red-faced Mel carved her congealed custard, and then offered her guests one lump or two Over burnt apple filling, a soggy bottom, and caramel like superglue While sampling each others cakes, they laughed and reminisced of baking memories in youth Until Mel turned to Gary and cried, "Your concrete cream scones have broken my front tooth!" So Gary’s fine baking went in the bin, Mel’s shattered tooth was the final straw Time for Mel’s signature sponge cake, good job we had a pick axe and chainsaw So an afternoon of undercooked and burnt offerings, the only edible food, the cherries Which just goes to show, we all should have just stuck with Cookie Dough from Ben and Jerry’s Please don't take this personally Gary, I truly would not want this to sound mean But the next time we have an afternoon tea party, we really should invite Jeanne I think we both need to practice our kitchen skills, if we hope to improve our bakes And learn from other great bloggers to avoid injuring each other with our cakes
Yes….Gary and Mel have traversed from the world of baking into the world of poetry – scary isn’t it!!!!
