It’s Bun Day! (in Iceland)

7 Mar
nice creamy Icelandic cakes!

a suitable alternative to pancakes...

There are not enough cake posts on this blog: so here (by way of an apology to cake fans) is a bit of redress. As I understand it…if you’re a child and you live in Iceland, Shrove Monday is a big thing. What you do is catch your parents in bed, and if they still happen to be there you get to spank them with a stick! And you get a bun for every strike! All good fun for the family…and you get to fill your face with cake too. Aha!

It’s a load of  Collops: some stuff you may or may not know about the start of  Lent, from an interesting site.
