More OMG moments!I have one of those cups! Since I came here I've been madly collecting tea cups from our loverly (if overpriced tea centre).

that custard sure looks good. i used to find that brown sugar curdled my custard. last time i made teh stuff i made a date-and-brown-sugar base for the custard. try caramelising it first :-) yum...
