In my last post I alluded to having overcompensated for the vegan cake by making my own Irish cream. A few words of warning: don’t operate heavy machinery after a couple of these. I mixed 2 fl. oz. whisky with about 100ml of cream and added a shot of coffee liqueur. I mixed it up with lots of ice cubes (a bit pointless if you’re going to put it on top of an Aga to photograph it, but hey-ho) and served it up in tiny glasses. Not because I planned on drinking it slowly. Just because it looks cute.
