Nicey replies: This is the subject of an internal dispute at NCOTAASD HQ. Wifey who is both Northern and Irish maintains like yourself that small cakes in paper cases are buns. Where as I'm Southern having spent most of my life south of a line that connects the Wash to North Wales. I would consider a bun to some form of small sweetened or spiced bread as exemplified by the Hot Cross Bun.

Perhaps we should ask some elephants as they are supposed to eat buns.

It may well be that your North South explanation is the correct one, and that effectively we have two languages, NOrthen English and Southern English which have a different definition of a bun. This could serve as a useful addition to my dodgy geo-location technique which uses biscuit quality and Marmite tolerance to work out latitude and longitude. When in the UK bun interpretation could also tell you roughly if your were north or south of Birmingham.

Nicey replies: Thanks Bruce for that mammoth message, and all of that useful information on Canada, its biscuits, cakes and its tea. Also thanks for the tip off about a place in America that makes a decent cup of tea, after four years I think we may be edging towards double figures on that. You also managed a fairly respectable icon haul. If you had kept going a bit longer I'm sure you would have most of the others, and I felt particularly that the kettle and toast icons where within your grasp at one point.

Nicey replies: Indeed as far as I recall the Lemon Puff was a Peek Frean biscuit and so its custodian-ship moved to Jacobs in due course. As I have often said I respected the lemon puff of old, despite not really liking it.. We had a couple attempts at reviewing the modern and inferior round ones but they were too grim.

As for Kunzle Cakes, I never had one but they sound amazing, there is a very good blog devoted to them.

Nicey replies: Excellent, a military multi-role training biscuit/cake/slice. I wonder what Nelson had to do with it?
