thread Occasionally I'm given a personalised cake
from Costco because it was ordered and not collected.

I think this is a great premise for a tv series.

Each episode there's a cake that gets chucked out, then it flags back to the story of what Dylan did that meant he didn't get his 16th birthday cake, for example.
permalink This week on
The Costco Cake Capers...
permalink You could get guest writers and directors.
Tonight's episode was written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, and was directed by Guillermo del Torro.
permalink I really hope at
some point you get a Monkey Faced Cake.
permalink You're my cake now
permalink And in tonight's episode,
directed by Chris Morris, the Cake isn't quite what anybody thought it would be.
permalink it's a made up tv show.
permalink I'm now interested in the back story
to why Costco just give you cake. I take it this is a charity thing rather than an "in" with the bakery team?
permalink Yeah, it's a charity thing.
It's part of the Wigan junk food initiative - food is given to local organisations instead of being sent to landfill. Costco stuff goes to a vicar's wife, and some of it comes to us. So at the moment we have half a cake left and a freezer full of mozzarella.

We get surplus or stuff that asylum seekers don't eat.
permalink cool
