Snow-Topped Spice Cake

I returned to an old favourite book today and made the snow-topped spice cake from Nigella’s ‘How to be a Domestic Goddess’ for my practice manager’s birthday.

I always try to get her a really naff, joke present and this year I got a real humdinger. It was a lurid, lilac flannel folded around a piece of old lady soap to form the shape of a handbag, finished off with a particularly unattractive clump of artificial flowers! Someone, who I hope isn’t reading this, gave it to my Mum for a gift and we are both natural born re-gifters!
