(had a lot do deal with lately, not been in the right frame of mind)
Who is she?? Anyone help here?
Jessie Oleson, our favourite Dessert Detective and maven of sweetness otherwise known as Cakespy (previously featured here), has outdone herself once again. This ooey-gooey creation is a Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg.
A traditional Scotch Egg is a savoury treat consisting of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg, while no healthier, is all about sweetness:
“The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs. Though in my opinion, these have slightly more complex flavor thanks to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookie crumbs. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a nice texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.”
Looking at these photos makes our teeth hurt and our stomachs rumble. Oh sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs, how we’ll miss you once you’re gone for the year.

Cakespy is a kindred spirit.
So far the start to this year has been good. 4 friends whose friendship i’d thought had lost come back into my life.
It’s amazing what happens when you become your old self. Not pretend to be someone you’re not to please others. No more party animal, loud mouthed, angry/violent, sour faced, horrible drunk, male slag fucking moron….
Just plain old boring geek me. Would rather stay in on xbox or read a cracking book/ graphic novel than get wasted. I like this new me. And so do the ones i thought I’d lost.
Our Night Sky When We Collide With Andromeda
In the photos above in order:
— Present day
— 2 Billion years from now the of the approaching Andromeda galaxy is noticeably larger
— 3.75 Billion years, Andromeda fills the field of view
— 3.85 Billion years, the sky is ablaze with new star formation
— 3.9 Billion years, star formation continues
— 4 Billion years, Milky Way is warped and Andromeda is tidally stretched
— 5.1 Billion years, cores of both galaxies appear as a pair of globes
— 7 Billion years, the cores have merged, the bright core dominates the night sky
Here is an animation of the collision
In around 4 billion years our galaxy, The Milky Way, will collide with our neighbor galaxy Andromeda or M31. You might think this will be a catastrophic event for everything in the galaxy including our solar system but in reality most of the solar systems will simply pass by each other. However, given the new galactic center and the new mass pulling everything towards it and tossing it around, the orbits of those solar systems will be changed.
The massive Andromeda galaxy is about 120,000 light years across while our galaxy is 100,000 light years across. Given their size, the speed that we our hurdling towards each other is relatively small at 250,000 miles per hour.
