5 Things Tumbledown Might Teach You…

As my author copies of Tumbledown are still winging their way across the pond, I can’t launch a give-away just yet. So, to pass the time and for sheer “What the hell?” hijinks, here are five things you should be able to do by the end of the novel. Plus, a gratuitous picture of a cake. And who doesn’t love cake?

1. Bake a Victoria Sandwich cake. 

cake-374782Ingredients: (taken from my mum’s tried and true recipe)

6oz margarine, 5 oz caster sugar, 3 eggs, 6oz self raising flour.

Add raspberry jam, whipping cream, and icing sugar for filling and topping.

Methodology: See book.

Note: Methodology used in book is definitely NOT my mum’s methodology.

2. Deliver a baby.

(Actual process is far messier than cartoon might imply.)

3. Navigate your way down a good chunk of America’s Eastern Seaboard.

Lobster rolls, anyone?

4. CPR.

Unbelievably, still not something routinely taught in UK schools. Refresh your skills here.


5. Survive a prison riot…

My lips are sealed on this one.


Now, who said LesFic wasn’t edukashional? 😉
