This week the prompt on Writers Island is 'if only'
What if I made some muffins? I wonder if a sponge cake would be better. Would I stand a better chance if I made a fruit cake? But if I baked a........mm, not sure. Then if......if.....if......! Only a few days to go.
I wonder if I put in enough eggs. What if there was too much flour? If I stirred it more....if....if....if.....! Only a few more minutes in the oven.
Let’s see if it’s cool enough. I wonder if it’s too soft. What if it’s soggy in the middle or if....if....if.....! Only hope it’s good enough.
If I use whipped cream on top I wonder if I should sprinkle chocolate bits over it. What if I iced it instead? I wonder if pink would look good or if white would better. But then again, if .....if.....if.....! Only one chance, I must get it right.
I wonder if the judges like it. Would it have stood a better chance if I’d just dusted it with sugar? What if I’d used a paper doily under it? If....if.....if.....! Only came third.
If only I’d made a swiss roll!
