BTW, I'm loving all the Aussie slang.  It's like reading an excerpt from a Crocodile Dundee movie! 


Not sure what they taste like, but in cake, it should be Red Velvet :D like Steel Magnolias Armadillo cake.

Well, I think I am going to be inspired by our recent Ashes win (C'mon Aussie!) and I'm going to do a square cake with a cricket pitch and two blokes kitted out with pads and the baggy green, have a hit of cricket.


I did think of a hat with corks hanging from it...but.....I can't work out how not to make it tacky.  And you're right, Pixie, all the 'Bigs' and just tacky by default.  Lol.  But don't we all love them!

Being a certifiable outback nut I can say that I have never seen anyone wearing a hat with corks except for fancy dress.  I think they went out of fashion in the dark ages.  Oh, woops, I don't think there were any white Australians here then.
