Elizabeth Hurley gets it wrong

Elizabeth Hurley cooks something she calls 'Four Quarters Cake'. Actually, she doesn't so much as cook it, more explode it in the oven, thanks to a linguistic failure. This is her inability to understand the difference between 'teaspoon' and 'tablespoon', despite having been given in lesson in cutlery not 24 hours before.

Adding two tablespoons of baking powder causes the Four Quarters Cake to explode shortly after baking commences, thus drenching the inside of the oven with cake.

So polite are we all, that we then say cheery things like 'Never mind!' when we'd really like to say 'Twerp'. We even try tasting some. It is disgusting and a lot of 'Urghurghurghing' goes on immediately all round.

rofl at cake. glad I'm not cleaning oven [though i guess that will be you not her?]
my eldest made a really beautiful cake for my nan. looked and cut perfectly. when tasted it was realised she had used tablespons not teaspoonds of bicarb of soda - quite inedible!
