Advantages: THE CAKE IS FAULTLESS.
I am extremely fussy in regards to what goes in my mouth but, as many of us do, I have an annoyingly enormous sweet tooth. Soo when I came to the isle containing this little sugary newbie, I found it difficult to pass untouched. The pretty baby blue box drew me in as I have always been drawn to pastel coloured packaged food.. unsure as to why to be quite honest! The sign 'Frosty Fancies - £1' made the buy even more irresistible, so, I gave into temptation and placed a box inside my basket; alongside some gingerbread men and orange - flavoured star shaped shortbread! 'What am I doing to myself!' I kept thinking over and over in my head as I dragged my feet to the till. I guiltily placed the basket onto the counter and the cashier asked: 'Is there anything else, madam?' 'No, thank you' I replied, when I really should have said 'where do you keep your banana's and mangoes?'. Ah well, I got a taxi back to my halls (okay, I should have walked) and made myself a healthy chicken sandwich. With the box carefully placed on my washing basket, creating voices in my head, crying out to me and looking soooo magical I gave up with reading 'Hard times', put on the inbetweeners and opened up the box of Frosty Fancies. The smell hit me first - I imagined a Kipling version of Charlie and the chocolate factory to smell this way (Kipling and the cake factory) a heaven for cakes. I actually lost sight of the typically, dingy. student accommodation i was in; with the stained tiles, off - colour walls and code names written in the corner primarily for the next tenant and imagined a field of edible, vanilla flavoured lillies, scattered around lime tasting grass and river with a raspberry kick. The bite was a moment of madness. The sponge was buttery soft, complementing the icing and cream encasing the top. Okay, so my sweet tooth extended that night to six sweet tooth - one for each cake I swiftly demolished guilt free.
The next day i purchased two more boxes and I guiltily confess, there are two more frosty fancies awaiting a trip to Hollywood. (my name is Holly)
The gingerbread men and orange flavoured shortbread haven't been touched.
