Mrs P and Miss Dee - A Poem by Faye Blackwell

I’ve made a decision, I’m going to bake

My very own exclusive Christmas cake

Now this could be a challenge, a tricky task

As all my cakes have been binned in the past

Charred round the edges and hard as a brick

I gave the dog some and he was violently sick

I won’t be disheartened, I have a great plan

To produce a great cake as best I can

I’ll pop into Thornbury and see Mrs P

Gleam some advice from the talented Miss Dee

Together they make a wonderful team

With help on making the cake of my dreams

They have baking tins and trimmings galore

Marzipan, icing, oh and so much more

So Finishing Touches could save the day

All my cake worries have faded away

Now if all of this fails, and disaster strikes me

Up my sleeve I have a trump card you see

I simply order my cake from the lovely Miss Dee
