Chris Doyle
Jaffa cakes
Nicey replies: Dear Mr Doyle,

First I'd like to say how much we enjoyed watching that Spitfire you had earlier this year, the younger members of staff now rate Spitfires as highly as F16s which is praise indeed.

Second as for the Jaffa cake, we certainly do that the matter seriously. Your argument seems a little adrift in places so here we go with the first Jaffa Cake mail of 2004. There are a number of reasons why the Jaffa Cake is a cake and as such the bakers of Europe may rest easy in their beds.

1) As you point out, and as we have popularised, it is called a CAKE.

2) Very very importantly it is made from cake, sponge cake to be precise. This obviously has huge bearing on its status as a cake.

3) Yes yes yes it goes hard when stale, just like a cake, (which it is) not like biscuits which go soft (unless its a Fig Roll or some other biscuit which goes hard etc).

4) It has been deemed to be cake by a law tribunal some years ago now.

5) It has a moisture content consistent with that of a cake, (because it is a cake)

6) Its a little itty-bitty cake

Yes we are aware that it likes to be seen with biscuits, and yes they are about the same size and come in similar packets.

Abernethy Review
Nicey replies: Hurrah for Abernethy biscuits. I like the way the holes in them are sort of oval rather than round, like lots of little navels probably.

Jacob's Orange Club Review
Nicey replies: That's a wonderful account of why biscuit wrappers are not just packaging.

Nicey replies: Simple, bite the face off then eat the goo left behind using your favourite spoon.
