My favourite.

Passion fruit or Mango Cheescake if I get to choose, but plain will do.

I have not contributed to this thread but some of you may recall a post last year about flies and pies.

 

I'll add it below, might appeal to our overseas visitors:

 

 

 

"interestingly, talking about flies, on my last visit the the USA, I visited a town called Bird in the Hand (yes its true - imagine if we had a town in Australia with the same name???) I could have some fun with that???

 

It's in the heart of the Amish communities and all the restaurants were selling "Shoo Fly pies" - well this got me really excited.

 

I ordered the pie and looked for the flies - in the pie - well there were none, so I asked for a refund and told the server, in a very nice Australian way, what he could do with his pie, (Aussies will know what I mean).

.

What a letdown.

 

At least we always advertise our food properly here in Australia - particularly what fish variety you will be served.

 

I can assure you, it is not our custom to make pies with flies down under although if in the very unlikely event you do find one in your pie - do not make a fuss - as others will want to experience the same experience as you (which will not be nice for you or people around you as well - think about that - you may have to then swallow a spider - you know what I mean)!"

LOL, I totally know what you mean in regard to advertising, I cannot believe that Dog biscuits do not contain any dog at all.:confused:

They also have Pav discs like a thin pav, three in a box, you then layer them.

 

Disc, fruit cream whatever, disc, filling, disc, topping. Think I’ll try a box of those for something a bit different this year.

 

Along with a traditional one of course.
