Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
And more votey.
Loads of you have already voted for me, and I appreciate every vote and kind message. Truly, thank you all.
It is not over yet. We are on the home stretch, and I won’t give up until the bell tolls at 12 noon BST (8am AST, 7am EST). Please, if you haven’t done so, vote for me. If you’re using a different computer today, vote for me *again*. If you haven’t used your iPhone, or laptop, or tinfoil helmet, use that to vote for me today, for a change. If you haven’t told your friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances, taxi drivers and hairdressers, now is the time. In two short hours our time will be spent, all too soon. I’m feeling a bit Shakespearean today.
I’m the only UK contestant, and right now it’s 5am where Movita is – they’ll all be asleep while we busily launch our stealth attack. Cunning, right?
Here is my entry to the competition. It’s three layers of Guinness and chocolate sponge, sandwiched with Guinness and vanilla buttercream, decorated with plain buttercream. I hand piped all those swirls with a burst piping bag, and I drew a tiny Movita on the top with an icing pen.
Then I gave the cake to my colleague Miss R as a birthday cake (she has good timing).
It is a beautiful cake and I selflessly gave it away, virtually to Movita and literally to Miss R. If that’s not worth a vote I don’t know what is.
