The Retired Bloke

Cake

Tea cups clinking

Tea pots pouring

People chatting 

Friends are laughing

A tea shop is the place to be

But it’s not the tea it’s the cake for me

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a 

Brownie 

Banoffee

Coffee

Or Dundee

Maybe even a

Strawberry

Panettone sometimes

A fondant fancy

My mouth waters at the thought of a 

Babka

Babousa

Banana

Genoa

Jaffa 

Madeira

Opera 

And Pavlova

Sometimes I fancy an

Apple

Angel

Marble 

And fat rascal

Other times I’m drawn to a

Carrot

Chocolate

Coconut

And Charlotte 

Nothing else matters for just one moment

When cake alone’s the most important component.

    You missed one, one of my favourites is lemon drizzle cake.
    Good mouthwatering write while I sit here with my muesli.

      Good point. Yes I too enjoy a bit of lemon drizzle.
