At the ambassador's reception, I believe he is called Ferrero Rocher. Should be an opportunity for a Vienesse Whirl around the dance floor with Cherry Bakewell or Victoria Sponge. Lovely girls although they do think I'm a bit of a Fruit Cake.

Ok ok ok that's enough, you've had over 10 pages of puns now trying to make us laugh. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

I'm guessing you're on a camping tour and that post was made within tent.

Off-pun for the moment: :|
One of those pointless bits of detail that's been bugging me for years, ever since that silly advert first came out:
How many chocolates are there in the Ferrero Rocher 'pyramid'? And how much would they cost at today's prices?

You can download instructions from their website :D http://www.ferrerorocherusa.com/how-to-creations.php
But that's only for Five Star events. Or maybe a Princessa. :wink:

Once you've built it, don't forget to Tuc in.

They serve them at the Ritz but not when it's Teatime.

Build a Ferrero Rocher 'pyramid' . .. . . the Holy Grail !

But what is this : first instruction : "Place a foam cone on a flat surface."

Oh, no, it is an illusion . .. . completely undermining my world view. :shock:

Alas, world diplomacy is not built on a pyramid of chocolates after all. :?
