I say, my royal counterparts are really putting on a jolly good show this year – Bravo!
Not only were we treated to a beautiful wedding as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Oh, how spiffing! Then on Saturday 2nd June, we joined the gaiety as HM Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 65 glorious years on the throne – Well done your grace!
You see, my darling Mrs Simkins and fellow collaborator – to commemorate the anniversary of the coronation rustled up Her Majesty’s most favourite teatime dessert - Chocolate Biscuit Cake. I say, and following such merriment we now prepare for our next royal ‘knees-up’ – the Queen’s official birthday of Trooping the Colour which takes on June 9th (2018)
Darlings, our beloved sovereign is a ‘chocoholic’ of the incredibly ardent and incurable kind! So, with this in mind, and with a bit of an orange twist, I re-created the frightfully fabulous Chocolate Cream Roll which I discovered in my 1935 edition of The Radiation Cookery book.
Of course, for Her Majesty’s official birthday Miss Windsor wished to ‘tickle one’s fancy’- Oh, I say! with a slice or two of Chocolate Orange Cream Roll - a light, tangy, incredibly moist, devilishly chocolatey, mouth-watering delight; slathered with a luxurious layer of Orange Butter Cream – and best enjoyed with a cup of your favourite Rosie Lee!
Now darlings, once you’ve laid your table fit for a QUEEN with all your finery, one may treat oneself to a pre-party drinkie! May I suggest, the Queen’s favourite tipple of gin and Dubonnet? - to be supped from a crystal glass tumbler, of course!
However, I must admit I'm not really in the mood for an alcoholic beverage, as my thirst yearns for a good old-fashioned cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Oh, and what a splendid way to ‘toast’ Her Majesty’s official birthday - don't ya think!
God Save The Queen!
