The 9th

brgy1

Please don’t eat all the cakes,

Save some for me.

This is your thing, tea, a little bit of,

Are these to eat? Black with nothing,

N’ Rock and Roll.

I’m thinking about lunch, I like batch two,

Do people enjoy the cakes?

The 10th

brgy2

Chocolate or plain, chocolate,

A party, we’re having a party, I like us waking up to you making breakfast.

You washed it, when cooking, my favourite part,

Make stiff peaks,

You’ve excelled yourself,

tea, two sugars, black, no, soya,

The last time I baked I was sent home with a burnt arm.

The 11th

brgy4

I love to wake up to your smell, your baking smell,

Morning,

Morning.

Matthew, can I ask you something,

Could I have tea please, tea please, yes.

I think the trick is to make the dough as thick as possible,

Coffee,

Coffee.

Tea, Tea, Tea.

Do you take sugar, no, that’s a yes, two,

Two.

My first marble cake.

The 12th

brgy3

I love to wake up to the smell of your cakes,

Lemon,

Can you pass me a little cake?

‘Removed due to Community Rules’.

ojo de buen cubero.

Infused with lemon,

Cinnamon,

And Wine,

Your egg is calling to you.

You’re a snail and a thief, no?

Eating your apple and sniffing some wine,

Would you like a photo of that, of you doing that?

The 13th

brgy5

Are you making coffee buns? You know,

There’s a lot of rum from last night.

Can I make an intervention and add chocolate?

You do it freestyle.

I like that, I shall take a photo of you later.

You put in the flavour but the flavour doesn’t stay,

Where did the flavour go? The oven took it all away.

So different to before, the smell of the lime.

Matthew, can I turn the oven off?

The 14th

brgy7

58, 59, 60, 61,

Matthew, when are you starting?

Clearly I’m still waking up, it’s a Saturday take it easy.

Are you the duvet guy?

I am,

And the cake guy, my favourite.

My grandmother used a tooth pick,

Thank you.

They flew, where are the rest?

Found flavours; peach and wine; milk and honey,

One off cakes, limited edition work,

I’m pretty sure we ate dog.

Why are you baking? Because you are nice?

I’m drinking from the glass of everybody.

The 15th

brgy6I went for breakfast at the hotel to get here for 9,

Got up at 7,

Breakfast half 7,

Got out at 8.

London or Whiskey?

London of course.

I’m not very good at making coffee right now,

You’re not very good at baking cakes by the look of it.

We’ve started, oven’s on.

It had been raining, I’ve missed you so much.

My friend Juliette, I told her I was coming here, her nephew said

“Do you do this all the time”,

I don’t have the time.

You know a lot of people,

I know a lot of people,

We know a lot of people,

And she gave me this box of stuff.

My son enjoyed the cakes.
