It's in the market place, in sheltered accommodation, or on the village green by a tree. "And I'd like a piece of cake!" It could be in any village...could be in Stanmore. It could be taking place at the week-end, because that's when most people have time off. It happened yesterday and the weather turned out nice.
Our ladies names are Janice and Daisy. They are both members of the WI. They do these events regularly so they know each other. These ladies get along very well and they're both happy doing what they're doing:) They are doing it for the Macmillan cause. One of the ladies looks younger...Janet looks younger. They have also prepared some meat!
The cakes are made fresh and they sell them to the people who are there. The onlookers hope to eat some of the things they have prepared. The little lad is looking at the cakes and they look good. They look as though they are with their parents. The little girl eating ice-cream is Lisa and the little boy is Roberto. Lisa and Roberto are brother and sister. They must be with their mother who is behind them.
We've got a Victoria sandwich, chocolate bars, lemon meringue and chocolate cake...but mostly sponges. The children's favourite is chocolate!...The children look cheeky and so does the lady with the yellow lollypop. We think it's the autumn or it could be the spring or summer. The people are feeling hungry. They hope they will get the first choice of cake. The people are probably happy and they like being outside and comfortable...or they could be in a tent. There might be music in the background and "buzzes" of conversation...the birds are in the trees. There are no "bits" on the cake and the trees are not losing their leaves. Country music is playing, there is a silver musical instrument next to the boy, it could be a clarinet. People will be dancing and feeling good, but they could feel dizzy and sick from eating all of that cake!
It could be a barn dance or country dancing. Someone's knocking at the door. They eat the cake and go for a drink, orange juice and lemonade and wine!. Not all of the cake gets eaten. Some people will take it home. Both ladies are working with the tart tins. The cake gets thrown out to the birds and some will go to other people.
Janet and Daisy get a well earned rest when all of the cake has gone. But first they have to tidy up and auction the cake! Roberto with have what's left. Janet and Daisy will be left with the washing up, but they won't mind, because it's for a good cause and Macmillan will be very pleased. They go home, sit down with a nice cup of tea, a piece of cake, watch tele with their feet up and a cigarette!
