Cake crumbs of loveliness

On Boxing Day, me and my beloved volunteered at our favourite café, The Art House.  It’s not only our fave because that’s where we met, but also because it allows us to be very silly and provides us with a platform for our creativity, be it performing poetry or busking.

The Art House is a not-for-profit CIC run by volunteers, serving deliciously scrumptious vegetarian food and is renowned for its awesome cake.

One of the perks of being a volunteer is the leftovers. We came home with a mahoosive coffee and walnut cake, past its best, but with only one slice gone from it (as well as a few other random slices).

Now, we like cake. We like cake a lot. But even I was overwhelmed by so much cake and, so, I had to think of creative ways to upcycle.

Here we have yesterday’s quest for nomliness – a tiramisu-style, um, well, tiramisu.


And here’s how to make it.


4 slices leftover coffee and walnut cake
2 tbsp Biscoff crunchy spread (just because)
250g of mascarpone
1/2 pint thick, low-fat custard
2 tbsp double cream
Chopped walnuts (taken from top of cake)
Dark chocolate coated coffee beans

What to do

1. Bash up the cake into many crumbs of loveliness
2. Stir in the Biscoff crunchy spread
3. Mix mascarpone with custard and double cream
4. Layer cake and creamy mix
5. Top with chopped walnuts and coffee beans


Watch out for another leftover cake recipe tomorrow 🙂

LC, the lonesome cowgirl
She’s kinda deranged
LC, the lonesome cowgirl
She’s really pretty… strange

LC’s got herself a gig
For Independence Day
She’ll have you squealing like a pig
If you let her get her way

LC needs to write more words
And practise her geetar
Just three more lines (mostly absurd)
Is all she needs thus far

She’ll make you laugh, she’ll make you cry
She’ll have you shake with fear
But still you’ll love her all the while
She’s weird, but most sincere

She’ll sing her tale of tragedy
Regale you with her truth
Her dark and honest travesty
Is sure to raise the roof

LC, the lonesome cowgirl
Lost her horse or found a rope
She’s coming to a place near you
But is she ready? Nope!
