Yesterday I was writing a presentation for work ( journal club) when I had a sudden craving to make lemon sponge cake with a kiwi fruit topping and icing. Yes – very strange – but that is what reading journals does to me! I drove to Tesco and bought some ‘tools’

Drove back home and started baking.   Voila! The finished product…

So I was aiming for it be be a Nigerian flag cake. I showed it to my lovely companion and he said “It’s Andalusian!” And I suppose it is/it can be, it just depends on which way I am holding the cake!
