Of course, that didn't happen. The so-called rain became snow --- and snow and snow and snow. But I was happy enough being storm bound: I had my Saturday crossword puzzle, 3 more past seasons of Dr Who to watch, a clean house and a delicious lunch already prepared: pork and black bean chilli, crusty chabatta bread and a few slivers of stinky, aged cheddar.

I tried to nap, but sleep eluded me. I was in this sort of semi conscious place for over an hour.
So, I baked a cake; a chocolate layer cake. (And I never bake layer cakes, so this was obviously an urge that needed to be met!)
As it was baking, I called long distance to get my mom's recipe for Mystery Icing -- light and fluffy and not sweet, made with cooled custard which is added little by little to creamed butter and sugar.
I spread the first layer with softened apricot jam and then the Mystery icing (which was made with coconut custard) and topped with toasted coconut.
