Yeah, it doesn't look the best (which is why I didn't blog about it when I made it) but it tastes really really good. And what is more, it's from the Mary Poppins cookbook. I read both Mary Poppins and Mary Poppins Comes Back last year and had to have the cookbook!
Topsy Turvy Cake
Speaking of Topsy-Turvy...
"Three Little Maids from School" from Topsy-Turvy (Mike Leigh, 1999)
The film Topsy-Turvy chronicles the efforts of Arthur Sullivan and W.S. Gilbert to write The Mikado. If you haven't seen the operetta, the 1939 film is available on DVD, but if you get the chance to see it live, go for it! Gilbert and Sullivan operettas are ridiculous (and often extremely politically incorrect) but a lot of fun.
