Marie Antoinette…
And all the gory details of the French revolution!
School!
And Cake!

Chocolate Cake …
Moist and wet and dreamily yummy!
And egg less!
If you have been keeping track of my bio…you will know that I am now gainfully-as in an economically viable-y employed in a high school and that I teach history to senior school boys and girls.
Boys and girls who haven’t the faintest interest in their own history…let alone the french revolution.
But then…some one has to do this dirty job…
Make the French Revolution palatable!

With chocolate cake…
Well what ever history says about Marie Antoinette and her air head comments …about letting them eat cake…it is so not true.
But that caught their attention…30 ninth graders…
And me…
I went all out telling the stories of what all I have ever read and seen on celluloid…
And what should have taken only 15 classes took more than 22!
But the cake was not for them…

They got pearls of my wisdom-sic! 
This was in honour of general happiness…
Missing friends and trying to fit into the new staff room..the staff room that has many pure no egg eaters.
So a small offering…and a display of my prowess…that water makes for a fantastic cake too…
yes!
