A slice of Book wonder

The Graveyard Cake

Adjani Gama Dessavre There was a sharp knife, the sharpest you’ll ever see (definitely it was not for cake). There was a murderer family, yet the youngest child, only a toddler, was missing.

Good Omens: the Cake Apocalypse

Adjani Gama Dessavre Today’s cake is about Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.

It is the last book I […]
