Well, OK, it was more of a slightly stale fairy cake, with one full-size candle shoved in it at a wonky angle.

Another question from "INDIE KIDD," and what do the words in bold signify? Thanks.

    A fairy cake is a very small, 1-person-sized cake, made either in one of those 12-hole bun tins or in an individual paper cake case, and probably with icing or something similar on top. I assume that a full-size candle is simply to indicate a normal household candle, rather than the small birthday-cake candles, which are only about 0.5 mm in diameter.

    Thanks, alisonp, it's very clear.
