Hello: New Battenberg Cake Cushions!

Hello: New Battenberg Cake Cushions!

Amazingly- LOADS of you guessed with 100% accuracy- with your Battenberg hypothesis. Great minds think alike, and all that!  For us: Battenberg represents the ultimate childhood treat. Whether it’s the fact that it’s covered in Marzipan, that…
