Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party

Here’s some I made earlier.


Today I’m joining Jan Horton’s Spellbindingly fun blog party to celebrate the launch of her new book How do You Voodoo


When Janice said, think of your object of desire, I spent some time fantasising about holidays and cake (which are my default objects of desire – holidays eating cake, holidays baking cakes, cake with cake…). Then reality broke in and I realised I had a 102 things to do instead of wasting time daydreaming about cake.  I thought, hey, this is a voodoo thing. I can do whatever I like. So I wish for… more time.

I would like to bake a ‘More time in the day’ cake. I’ve often wished there were more waking hours in the day, so that I could do everything and still get a bit of sleep. So here’s my recipe for More Time in the Day fairy cakes. Each cake should give you about 90 minutes. You can bake a whole cake and slice it into one hour slices, if you’d prefer.

My ingredients: three wild rose petals, a light pinch of magical herbs, 4 and a half dragon’s tears (use a glass dropper, not plastic), thistledown. Stir into a standard sponge cake recipe. Bake at 180 degrees until firm (don’t worry if they turn purple, this is normal). Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with Magick crystals to decorate (note – if the crystals melt to form a pink glaze, you haven’t cooled them enough. They still work, but you’ll get about 10 minutes less time.

My spell:

Magic herbs, petals rose, tears that dripped off a dragon’s nose

Thistle down and sponge to bake a truly special fairy cake

Donate to a friend for a gift sublime

There’s no time like the present and no present like more time

Now then, what am I going to do with all this extra time… oh yeah.

Angular Momentum
This is geeky, weird, yet totally romantic at the same time. (Er… so…just me then).

  1. Thanks all. I should say, don’t eat more than 6 hrs worth in one day… it can mess with your mind a bit.
    Gwen, if only! the cakes are my daughter’s keto cakes, which are also magic in their own way.
    Typing on my phone is really hard. Hope this comment makes sense.


  2. I so LOVE this idea – each fairy cake gives around 90 mins eh? Right I better double the mix and give it a go! You haven’t patented this receipe yet have you Rhoda?

    Thanks for your lovely support today!

    Janice xx


    1. Doh! I knew there was something I should have done before I posted it! Never mind. (I could actually tell you why it’s not really patentable, but that would be too sad. Even for me!)
      Enjoy your extra hours. Remember, Eat time-cake responsibly.
