Turkish Delight


For my birthday we went to see the Narnia film and then went home for an elaborate afternoon tea. I made maraschino cherry cake, madeleines, chocolate truffle cake, jam drops and ginger biscuits, and we ate sandwiches with the crusts cut off and drank tea and lashings of ginger beer.

It was great.

The film was odd. I liked the opening sequence best of all - the portrayal of the blitz and subsequent evacuation of the children with their mothers sobbing on the platforms left me in tears. The dreadlocks of the white witch made me want to cry in a different way, however. But generally it was well made and we all enjoyed it, particularly the horse called Phillip.
