....well not quite but almost.
One of my co-workers turned 40 recently and I asked him what kind of cake he would like me to bake for him. He said he wanted something with alcohol in it, on it or around it and I asked him what his tipple was. His response - “Pirates like rum”.
Although I’ve already made Dorie's rum drenched pound cake I googled for a new recipe and found one on a blog called Eatables. The recipe calls for a butter rum glaze which uses a LOT of butter and a LOT of rum.
The photo is terrible but you can see the very appropriately themed breath “mints” which I found at a very cool store in Wellington called Iko Iko – it’s one of those tacky gift shop kind of places selling the same marvellous miscellany like might find at Archie McPhee's. I'm very sad to report that I didn't find a yodelling pickle at Iko Iko!
Don't hate me if you have an earworm now.
