Not one of you lot are throwing the non-standard cakes?
Because if you don't your 'd'h will fish them out of the bin and eat them as a protest, clearly a protest as you told him they weren't perfect & were for disposal only, you can't throw them out for the birds because there aren't any and you will suffer further conniptions at the thought of your children being exposed to such poison - one was a bit burnt shock

I desperately want to have a food fight. We might have to as a treat - twiglets would surely be against the Geneva convention though?

Yes I think the mess hall parties stopped after the great food fight.
It was astonishing how quickly it escalated. I still remember the sight of it flying through the air in all directions like the end scene from Bugsy Malone.

Oh it was years ago. It was a working mens club treat, and what a treat. I was only small and remember coming away in some dream like state thinking how surreal it all was.
Never been to anything like it since-perhaps they stopped the club parties after that-I don't remember.

How old are you simple ? I wonder if it's the one I went to in the Mess hall at the garrison where my mum are so literal we thought it was an instruction not a label. Although I thought that one started with twiglets...

Hey I went to a real bunfight once.
It wasn't advertised as a bunfight. It was a kids tea party in a club. Someone threw a bun, the next thing someone threw one back and so it progressed to sandwich, sausage roll and jelly throwing!
It was the best party ever in the entire universe.

You can use the Hot Cross Buns that I made for Easter.

They're like rocks. And the cross dissapeared. So basically, they're just round bricks covered in strawberry jam as I had no apricot jam. So, they'll stick when you throw them at someone.

I have already pointed out on another thread...

weetbix soaked in milk and left to harden into spikes like an old fashioned mine.... covered in chocolate to disguise them as buns...

lethal op, lethal.

gordyslovesheep Sun 31-Mar-13 22:49:52

one bun between 2 people is plenty remember spare buns now or you will have to pay bun tax

LineRunner Sun 31-Mar-13 22:47:29

Walk a mile in my choux, OP, and then tell me about buns.

gordyslovesheep Sun 31-Mar-13 22:45:42

are you new OP hmm

doyouwantfrieswiththat Sun 31-Mar-13 22:40:49

Tis' true that I hate to see good food wasted, but I refer you back to my comments about my mother's cooking. Her recipe may have been based on dwarf bread.

NippyDrips Sun 31-Mar-13 22:37:19

Some people can't afford buns to eat never mind fight with. This is such a first world problem and you sound entitled.


doyouwantfrieswiththat Sun 31-Mar-13 21:38:32

My mum could bake a Yorkshire pudding that would take your eye out, they shattered when they hit the ground. She taught me everything I know

nenevomito Sun 31-Mar-13 21:35:34

I have a stale bread frizbee. Very useful for your bunfight is the stale bread frizbee.

doobedoobedoo Sun 31-Mar-13 21:34:11

doobedoobedoo grinI always like current humour to relieve the tension.

I give you "currant humour". grin

doyouwantfrieswiththat Sun 31-Mar-13 21:33:26

I shape my flapjacks like oriental throwing stars, it's a little more effort but I think it's worthwhile.

EostreChaoticResurrEggtion Sun 31-Mar-13 21:32:55

Forget the buns if you don't want those eggs pass 'em here grin

I weave my buns from lentils

SecretLindtBunny Sun 31-Mar-13 21:28:09

YouTheCat Sun 31-Mar-13 21:27:36

doyouwantfrieswiththat Sun 31-Mar-13 21:20:41
