I have an octopus cake!

The octopus cake popped out of the pan as I'd hoped ...

and it's cooked all the way through! Now all I have to do is put the cream and raspberry jam in the "middle" layer (where I carefully sliced through it).

This means the rest of today is going to be perfect. :-)

I love hostessing

My cakes and sandwiches have been getting a great reception, but we are now full to the gills. The octopus still awaits ... but I'm going to make a go of fortune telling with my divinatory tea cups.
