  1. Mmmm. My favourite, well one of them, along with butterscotch tart and cornflake tart. Strangely enough I work in a school at lunch time and our kids don’t like anything with coconut, cherries, blackberries, even apple sometimes. And most didn’t like the pink custard when that was tried.

    1. Jesus Christ! This would mean everything to me! Two of my favourite things in cake form!

      I stood in the aisle at Aldi before drooling at one! If only I hadn’t had that donut I would have found it acceptable to eat the whole cake by myself
