I do believe that the Professor is making arrangements for you to devour a tasty curry at the normal curry house on Cowbridge Common. Good beer is available all over Kaardiff as you know. Sadly we will not be able to provide a barrel at the show like we sampled at Aldershot last weekend.

There may just be some welsh Cakes available however  

If the Welsh cakes are from the usual source  :sungum: 

I shall have to stock up on Brains Dark to take back home, I'm down to my last dozen bottles.
'Rev James' a regular on tap in our Legion though.

The Welsh cakes, now a feature of all Exhibitions where Cardiff 4mm Group are in attendance will be from the normal source (i.e. The Ferret) supplemented by additional supplies lovingly baked by Mrs Oisaeau. Much nicer than evostik  up your nose

Having sampled Evo-Stik many times over my three score plus years; but never having partaken of Mrs Oisaeau's wares, I'll have to err on the enjoyment of Evo-Stik.

.

Of course, one 'bakestone' ( Welsh cake was a term alien to my family ) at the show may sway my taste buds.

A bakestone is what the Welsh cakes should be cooked on, ideally.  It is a large piece of iron or steel, broadly circular with a handle, that is placed on the cooker and greased with lard applied with a twist of the paper wrapping the pack of lard.  Welsh cakes can be made on a griddle or in a cast iron frying pan such as one from the Le Creuset range but however well they turn out they are not the same.  Where does the iron or steel come from?  Well, if you see a tramp steamer with an oddly shaped porthole that might just be a clue.

Welshcakes?

 

Never heard of them, something resembling a Bakestone that the English like to try and make????

 

I recall my mam throwing the bakestone at my old man after he came home with a skinful on board,(Sunday joint burnt out)  luckily it missed but I reckon the huge gouge in the wall is still in the police house in Gabalfa!

The Ferret, the cook and supplier of the Welsh Cakes is a Supremo at the art, and I'm sure all the basic needs to produce the wares are in place, should you think otherwise, I will leave you to sort it out with The Ferret, I believe their score is 100% at resolving how the Welsh Cakes are made...

I can assure you that the venerable Mrs Oisaeau  makes an exceedingly nice WELSH CAKE and has also produced some additional delicacies. She made these tasties this morning before setting off for a little baby sitting. So provided Mr. Oisaeau can keep his mits off them there will some to taste.

The police authority sold them off years ago..................................but one in particular went very cheaply as it was structurally unsound; allegedly due to damage suffered by an  internal wall that had previously gone unreported !

"Welsh Cakes" being cooked, on a 'bakestone'

.

Being Welsh, and living in Wales, is there any point in calling them "Welsh" cakes ?

Tonight I experienced fear, first hand.................

.

Seeing the very impressive 'Sherton Abbas' for the first time was one thing, crawling beneath and bolting the boards together for 'Wenlock' was another.

.

But lifting his lighting frame into place led  squeaky noises to emanate from the seat of my pants !

.

Looking forward to an enjoyable weekend, and perhaps a Welsh cake ?
