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

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.
