The miraculous mixing of fat and icing sugar, it appears in the bowl as the beaters turn. A thick, swirling, rush of delicious sweetness.
Twig by twig I’ve seen it appear, fat and pendulous in the bare branches of the tree. A magpie perches on its sturdy edge, looking proud and strong. His chicks will be safe here, all Spring long.
Taken from the oven, it hisses gently. A miraculous mix of eggs, sugar and fat. The knife slides in and out cleanly. A cake for my mother, who first gave me the gift of baking.
