When we were kids there was nothing more exciting than a visit from Uncle Wendy. Uncle Wendy was the best cook and made the most amazing birthday cakes.
You never knew what surprise you’d find inside the cake Uncle Wendy made for your birthday.
My cousin Jason on his seventh birthday cut his cake to discover Uncle Wendy had secreted a toy car into the centre of his cake.
My sister Alice found inside hers a cloud of glitter stars, which did present an issue with the eating, but the effect was dazzling.
I should point out that this all happened back in the days when hygiene ended with washing your hands before meals.
Uncle Wendy was a great character, eccentric in so many ways but made the most scrumptious cakes.
