Golden Peach Pie

The first cake club day of April saw torrential rain and a distinct chill in the air. At five to ten, the cake clubbers were just saving their work and getting up from their chairs when, oh horror! Is that the fire alarm blaring rudely down the corridor? The cake club and all their shivering colleagues milled aimlessly around in the car park for fifteen minutes while the local firemen investigated. Katarina begged them to turn off the oven in the tea room, lest the cake be spoiled, and was promptly labelled the Firestarter. No no! She cried, I was just warming it up, but now I am worried for my golden peach pie. No no! The cake club joined in, we were just joking, of course it was not our cake that set off the alarm, please can we go inside and eat it now?

Fortunately for all concerned, a fault in the wiring was discovered, the alarm turned off and the hungry cake clubbers allowed in to warm their hands on a nice cup of tea, and their stomachs on a perfectly warmed and not at all burned slice of peach pie. And they all lived happily ever after.
