Well it was about five minutes ago now when I had absolutely no idea what a "Cherry Bake-well" was, Until a good old friend of mine S. Ferris informed me of their existence. I thought to myself " Nahh mate it's all lies ". Cherry and a bake plus a well, I couldn't believe my eyes, But there it is. I am truly astonished, Shocked and wowed. If only I had my very own Cherry Bake-Well, And also owning a kitchen wouldn't hurt. This has been Jarrett. Signing off. - 03 May 2014
