Super Sweet Blogging Award and a litle bit of #tbsu

Booyacka yes! It’s a meme about cake. Nom nom.  I was nominated for this one a while back by Tricia Drammeh but then one of her good writer friends died suddenly and it seemed a bit frivolous to do this straight away so I left it for a while… and now, here I am…


A cake, recently. Since this photograph was taken this cake has, sadly, been eaten. It leaves a few crumbs and a desire to make another one… only slightly less complicated.

So, first of all, I’d like to thank the lovely Tricia Drammeh for nominating me for the Super Sweet, Blogger Award. She has a great blog which is always entertaining to read and she gives some of the best advice for writers I’ve read anywhere. Second, do check out the 13 excellent blogs I’ve nominated! All worth a look.

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

  • Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you.
  • Answer 5 Super Sweet questions.
  • Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award in your blog post.
  • Nominate a bakers’s dozen (13) other deserving bloggers.
  • Notify your Super Sweet nominees on their blog.

The 5 Super Sweet Questions:
Yes, five whole questions about food. Told you this one was right up my alley.

Cookies or Cake?
That’s a tricky one. I love chocolate buns (weigh two eggs, put the same amount of sugar with them mix until it’s light and fluffy, add the egg’s weight in flour with some cocoa powder. Stick it in a tin and cook it for about 10 minutes on 180c. These are the best buns, or cake you can have. Pukka.

Favorite Sweet Treat?
My Mum’s Gingernut biscuits… lord they’re good. Or a can of condensed milk – small, of course – Mmm Mmm.

When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most?
There’s no most, I like a bit of sugary treat all the time

Sweet Nick Name?
Sadly none of my nicknames have ever been sweet. Indeed they are far from it.
Nickname number 1 (say the numbers in Lottery Balls Man voice it’s marginally more funny): Belly
Nickname number 2: Fanbelt
Nickname number 3: Sweary
Nickname number 4: Scary

Now for the Super Sweet Nominees… this is tricky because a lot of the bloggers I habitually read have done this already. But you, yes you lot are now awarded this… should you choose to accept it. The Super Sweet Award.

  1. THANK YOU for this super award MT – sorry for scoffing the whole cake, but it was delicious! 😀

  2. Thanks heaps for the nomination, MT–I appreciate it but honestly I’m a bit snowed under at the moment and trying hard to find time to keep up with my own blog. And write a book or two.

  3. Congratulations MT! I love your garden cake – awesome! I can’t believe I’ve found my first ever fellow condensed milk fan. Big can for me generally lasts a few hours. And thank you so much for this award – doesn’t matter if I get one twice because then I can pass it on to new bloggers. And especially thank you for “Booyacka!”. Your posts are diamond fields of superb new words for me. Awesome! 😀

    • Ah I love condensed milk. McOther used about a teaspoonful in a recipe the other week,I decanted the rest of the can to a plastic container and I’ve been eeking it out and I’ve just finished the last of it today!

      Delighted to introduce you to my degenerate slang!



      • You are my kind of reading humour. When I come out of my “not allowed to buy any more books for three weeks because I went nuts on Amazon” jail, I’m totally going buy yours and I know I’ll love your writing. The joy of using only a teaspoon and being able to eat the rest! 🙂

      • Mwah ha ha haarrgh! Yes! Exactly only a teaspoon? Oh dear what will I do with the rest of this HUUUUUUUGE can? Snortle.

  4. MT, you’re peachy keen! I will happily accept the Super Sweet Blogging Award. Just need to think of 13 bloggers I want to nominate.

    • Cool 🙂 thanks. You know you don’t have to bake the cake right? I just put that here because I forgot to do a post about the cake I made for my Mum’s 80th.



  5. Many thanks MT, I accept with pleasure and will check out your other nominees too 🙂
