  • Gosh I remember making those Christmas cakes, Mrs Potter I think was our teacher or was it Littlejohn ? we were hard up and my mother reluctantly gave me a 10/- for all the ingredients. I thought mine was the best ever , I iced it down to the silver board and did not put a ribbon or frill on , but stood two white chalk bears on the silver board and iced the top , I was sad I did not win and not even a comment loll, when mother brought the cake to the table Christmas night telling everyone Margaret, made this at school , BUT when we cut it , it was the driest and hardest cake ever seen , glad to say have made many better cakes since them , wedding birthdays etc, thank goodness

  • It was Olive Littlejohn, she had jet black, very thin and always miserable!!! Nice to see some girls I went to school with.
