WIBU to kick this dog?

Sorry, I didn't kick a dog. I need some baking suggestions but no-one ever replies to threads asking for boring stuff, do they?

DS's school is doing a bake off and for those of you who remember, baking comes with much angst at our school. I won't be doing a lemon drizzle or cornflake cakes, though. wink

I am going to try and do something like this as the theme is nature. But I want to do a relevant flavour of cake, but I am having a brain drain and can't think what to do.

Any suggestions gratefully received and I am sorry for tricking you into reading my thread. I can make up a story about kicking a dog if you like?

Apple and cinnamon?

Nutella flavour.

TheFutureSupremeRulersMum Wed 29-Jan-14 13:25:20

Something with hazelnuts in it mybe

Apple and cinnamon is good!

But so is Nutella...

Nuts are banned. I was going to do carrot with hazelnuts until I read that nuts were out. sad

Nutella has nuts in !!!!
I was going to say carrot

When I look at that cake I think mint chocolate because of the colours of the grass and the earth. Or carrot cake would fit with the rabbit and the natural theme.

Marmalade I remember the lemon drizzle! I am not sure I am emotionally prepared for round two.

Please can I hear your made up dog story? I kicked a dog once because it looked at me funny. this is not true

Can't you do a sarcastic lemon orchard cake grin

I was going to say walnut but as nuts are out it has to be carrot for the rabbits!

Nutella and banana. A marriage made in heaven!

Carrot cake is much nicer with sultanas instead of nuts, I think

MarmaladeShatkins Wed 29-Jan-14 13:36:10

How do you incorporate Nutella into sponge? Just stir it into the mix, is it? <thicko>

LOL at Lemon Orchard cake. <mind goes into over drive>

No suggestions but your thread title worked on me grin

MarmaladeShatkins Wed 29-Jan-14 13:37:57

Sorry but sultanas give me the boak. I won't be able to eat any of the cake mixture if there's sultanas in it. wink

OK, dog story...

Was getting onto the bus this morning and there was a disabled dog sitting in the pushchair area. I asked it to move and he tried to give me paw so I kicked it. WIBU?

Do you have Nigella's how to be a domestic goddess (or can you borrow a copy?). The rosemary loaf cake is divine (and quite unusual as you don't normally associate rosemary with sweet things).

What a cunning stunt (try saying that as a tongue twister)

I was about to shout that it's NEVER OK to kick a dog!

MarmaladeShatkins Wed 29-Jan-14 13:43:47

Yes I do have that book, Weekend! I'll have a look in a sec. smile

MarmaladeShatkins Wed 29-Jan-14 13:44:15

Oh come on. Sometimes it is OK to kick a dog. Does anyone remember when a dog shat on my picnic?!

Inertia Wed 29-Jan-14 13:44:58

If nuts are banned , the wouldn't nutella also be banned?

You could do carrot cake with a cream-cheese based snowy scene atop it.

TheOneWithTheHair Wed 29-Jan-14 13:44:59

Marmalade , you know you have to beat her don't you? No pressure!!

How about vanilla and orange?

BigW Wed 29-Jan-14 13:46:22

Bastard. YANBU.

NynaevesSister Wed 29-Jan-14 13:46:54

I NEED to know what sort of cake Lemon Drizzle mother turns up with.

I would be tempted to give it multiple layers in the colours of various soil substrates. You could then cut a slice out to show and include a stand next to it explaining the geology. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Lemon Drizzle woman!

But otherwise I love mint choc too or carrot cake.
