“The older you become, the more you know;
your bank account of knowledge is much richer.”
I’ve had a fabulous weekend in the countryside trampolining, watching the tennis and eating a tonne of Silver Screen Supperage. Paulette made a magnificient Gloria Swanson Devil’s Food Cake and I did canapes. The centrepiece was William’s crazy lime jelly extravaganza. I made it in a rabbit mold and Paulette said as it plopped out, “it looks like some kind of Damien Hurst artwork”. It really was quite a sight to behold! Not much of it was eaten but it certainly was a talking point. We also had Gloria Swanson’s Caviar Canapes and the old faithfuls Jean Harlow’s Celery a la Shrimp and Adolph Menjou’s Spiced Venetian Cheese. All washed down with some extremely strong martinis. Hic.
The young Rebel Without a Cause James made me laugh when Paulette brought the cake to the table. When she mentioned it was a very special cake he just asked, “Betty Crocker?”
