Memories are made of……. cake.

When I worked for the vending machine company, a popular item in the cake line was a Russian Slice. Should any be returned from site, I and other members of the office staff were allowed to take them home, as we were cornish pasties, sausage rolls, rolls and sandwiches, which was good for subsidizing my household budget and filling sandwich boxes.
It was never the same twice, mainly because basically it was made using all the odds and ends of other cakes, layered together with jam and topped with fondant icing.
As such, it was perfect for worshipping your sweet tooth.

These are google images of various Russian Slices.

There is a bakers in Skegness that not only make your sandwiches fresh to order for around Β£2, but also sell the most divine pasties, pies and cakes.
They are a little on the expensive side, but it is good quality and IMO value for money.
Hubby made a beeline for them today knowing they sell Russian Slabs as opposed to slices and he fancied one. They are the only bakers we have come across that sell it.
We could easily scoff it in one day, but for the price, I am making it last at least two.
I know this isn’t good for the diet, but is probably better than an Easter Egg!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I never heard of a Russian slice before but it sounds like a great way to get rid of cakes that fell apart.

    • I have no idea how they do it, but I suppose they mix it together, mix in the jam and then compress it before adding the icing. There are recipes on google. My failures in the cake line were either frisbee cakes (sponges that didn’t rise) or a Di surprise served with custard.
