I've been known to eat an entire McVities Jamaican Ginger cake in one sitting. 

Same here. Or their Golden Syrup Cake.

I live in smelling distance of the Mcvities factory.  Fucking wonderful.

Ha, I used to go to footy training in Harlesden and could smell it whenever we went out to the pitches - gorgeous isn't it

Where I used to live, on Burnage Lane, you used to be able to smell it from there too. Don't get a whiff here in Heaton Moor though :(

I went for a carvery on my own today, because that’s the kind of thing I do now apparently. It was absolutely class. It involved 4 meats, loads of roasted beige, sweet & crispy roast parsnips & potatoes, loads of buttery veg, all home made, top quality too, for £5. Unreal.

On top of that, you could add a slice of cake for £3. The absolute plight of these...

Wow! Where is this?

Valley Farm, in Team Valley, Gateshead. Next time I go I’ll take a photo of the carvery/plate and post it in Eat Clean, or Doomed Anecdotal.

My friend works for our local version doing the cakes. She says they're pre-bought and they just decorate them. Still very impressive but does take a bit of the magic away.

If I’m honest, I’m impressed they do any of it. I assumed they were 100% bought in. I went in on a whim and I only spotted these on the way out. I’m defo going back. The only issue is what to start with. I think I’ll start top left and work my way through them.

Anything more extravagant than a Victoria Sponge is a bit peas above sticks for me.

To be fair, I don’t totally disagree. A Victoria Sponge is spot on for 6 nights of the week, but 1 night of the week I want to put my good jeans and a nice shirt on.
