  • This looks and sounds very cute but… the thing I don’t like about this cake is the cherry brandy in it. I’m happy to have it without.

  • Prior to this I didn’t know it had alcohol in it. My lifesaving medication I have to take and alcohol interact and I’m not allowed to have any at all. No wonder I have had bad relapses and been rushed to hospital.
