Annoyed by a cake

Just made a cuppa and got the Farmhouse cake out i bought today , havnt had any for a while and the picture on the box looked soooo tempting , lovely looking cake with all that sugar sprinkled on the top .

Opened her up and guess what !


NO JEFFING SUGAR

You just cant have a Farmhouse cake with no sugar on top

Re: Annoyed by a cake

Sugar on the shop item is coarser, in't it? Best take it back, can't have a cake with ordinary sugar

Your right Fraser , it should be course like Brown sugar . i may send it back to the cake company as it doesnt resemble the piccy on the box .

Hopefully recieving a case full of cake in return

Then its cake all round chaps & chapesses

Isn't a Farmhouse cake a moist fruitcake covered in chunks of sugar? My dad used to eat them(whole) with numerous cups of coffee on a Sunday afternoon. If you took even so much as a stray raisin off the plate, then there would be hell to pay.

I do like them and sympathise with your lack of sugar topping. A stern letter of complaint is required, I fear.
