Tipsy Cake was my treat of choice. Odds n sods bits of old sponge revamped together with jam n sherry topped off with pink icing..... Chalmers in Boxy did the best.
Find myself going for fruitloaf style numbers nowadays. Parkhill garden centre is very good on the treat scale. Pineapple and cherry loaf very moist and a wonderful friend for a cup of tea. Excellent scones also.....cherry scone my pick.
I like a Baxter's pancake when up north. As thick and wholesome as Linford Christies nudger.
Fuck's sake Cheeser, I'd forgotten all about Tipsy Cake.
Brings me back to when I was a young Loon.
My Old Boy drove a Sunblest van and during the holidays, I used to go with him as he did his round out Fyvie way.
Trays full of custards slices, doughnuts, cream buns and assorted cakes but the topper out of them all was the Tipsy Cake.
I must have eaten a fair chunk of Sunblest's profits during my Summer holidays.
Tipsy, for me although a nod to an Eggy Custard too
I always threaten to get a “all the best, Fridge” stamp made.
They are alway’s horrendously cringeworthy from

Worked in an office where an old dear, Madge, was in with the fittings; been there since Victoria was on the throne.
Whenever there was a card for birthday/engagement/get well soon/leaving/death, us wags used to amend Madge's message above her signature to a simple "Up Yours, Madge".
Still do it in our office even though Madge has been deid for 20+ years.
