Every Sunday I make cakes and my local family come to tea.
Made M.B.'s boiled fruit cake, which turned out very stodgy. Then made biscuits for base of Mississippi mud pies. Two, because one daughter is gluten-free. Then made filling. Nine eggs, 300g chocolate, sugar, butter, 3/4 pint of cream all whisked up.
Then I dropped the bowl.
About 1/2 gallon of mixture all over floor, mat, table and chair legs, dressers, walls, even the ceiling, my feet, dog bed and dog.
I screamed, I swore, then staggered through flood before dog could eat enough to poison her (dark chocolate, very bad for dogs) It took an hour.
I couldn't start over again as far from shop and pouring with rain and no time anyway. Cancelled tea.
I keep finding more splashes of dried mixture in strange places - my hair, my other glasses. I've eaten 3 slices of stodgy cake as too cross to cook supper.
It's all M.B.'s fault, Mississippi mud pie was her recipe.
