I’ve taken the perfect photo for Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge, except it’s not Easter related, so no Easter eggs, bunnies, or such like. Never mind, you can’t get more sweet than this sticky, tasty Chelsea bun which I had the pleasure of eating at Fitzbillies in Cambridge. Ooh, I’ll definitely be going back…. Look at that – doesn’t it make your mouth water?… heaven. Talk about sweet perfection. Yum.
Fitzbillies Chelsea buns are famous, now I can see why. It’s so glossy, and beautiful it’s almost criminal to eat it – but I did and it was de -li- ci-ou-s!
I went to Fitzbillies with my eldest daughter, adding to the sweetness of the day. She’s just back home from university. I took a lovely photo of her but she asked me not to put it on my blog as she didn’t like it! Humph. So instead I thought I’d put up this old photo of my two daughters taken many years ago looking particularly sweet. My youngest Georgina is on the left posing for the camera and Natasha is on right looking all sweet and smiley. This cute photo graces my desk as I write.
Here’s me looking hungry just before I was about to devour my Chelsea bun.
I’m so glad I visited Fitzbillies: http://www.fitzbillies.com/
The café features in the novel I am currently editing. As well as my daughter’s lovely company, a visit there gave me an opportunity to check out the ambiance, the buns, the décor and perhaps add some finishing touches to that particular chapter… Wannabe authors are always up to something! Obsessed, we are obsessed! But that’s okay as my daughter Natasha writes too. She understands!
Now I am personally acquainted with Fitzbillies scrumptious Chelsea buns, it’s bound to add a certain something to the writing mix I reckon.. Don’t you?
It was a lovely day, and we followed it with a visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum to see their current exhibition: Death on the Nile: http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/news/secrets-ancient-egyptian-artisans-show-death-nile
Very fascinating.. Death on the Nile: Uncovering the afterlife of ancient Egypt runs from now until 22 May 2016. Admission is free. Before you go don’t forget to have a Chelsea bun!
I came across a review of the Death on the Nile exhibition on WordPress.
Here’s a link to that:

Bye for now.

Well, I have to say that the Chelsea Bun looks very, very yummy, Marje. My goodness, it must have been sheer delight eating it. I love Chelsea buns as well, although I’ve not come across any here in Wales. Maybe they’re called something else down here?
Thank you for joining the challenge this week with the super photos of both the Chelsea bun and the one of your sweet daughters. I can tell you are very proud of them and they, no doubt, are very proud of you. So they should be.
Happy Easter. 🐰
No Chelsea Buns in Wales, dear me…. I hope you manage to find some, or else you will have to visit Cambridge!!! I really enjoyed joining the challenge this week Hugh. I have got a bit of a sweet tooth! Yes I’m very proud of my girls they truly are a couple of sweet treasures.. Have a very Happy Easter, Hugh. 🙂
If I do find any, I’ll let you know what they are called, Marje. I had to go and buy some jam doughnuts after reading your post. It’s Okay to spoil yourself when it’s Easter isn’t it?
Of course, go and spoil yourself, enjoy your doughnuts Hugh. 🙂
Oh my. That looks so delicious. I have a notorious sweet tooth. Makes me want to swim the Atlantic just to have one. And I agree with you, wannabe authors are always up to something. Have a great day.
Ha ha!! The lengths we will go to for a Chelsea Bun!! Have a great day… 🙂
Wow! What a literally yummy photo!
I shall have to go back with my younger daughter too, it’s only fair!
I agree. It’s got to be done!
Wow Marje. The bun photo almost looks life size, lol. I wanted to take a big bite out of it!!! 🙂
Ha ha!!! Have a big bite Debby… Enjoy!
