Dangerous desserts

nov2013_27Paula found out the hard way about hot jam while trying to remove this Louise Cake from the oven. She let the tray slip and tipped steaming hot jam down her leg. Luckily she only got minor burns resulting in some good blisters. As any chef or home cook learns early any sugar based items that get heated can burn you badly.Making toffee for example is right up there with bomb disarming on  the danger list. The Louise cake however was excellent right up there with the ones mum used to make. For anyone that doesn’t know it as Louise cake think raspberry coconut slice with a meringue top ( not usually broken like this)
