butty is a controversial one which means different things in different parts of the country (like for me a bacon butty would mean bacon in a burger bun, not a sandwich) - you can definitely use sandwich and I would stick to it for safety
you can still say cupcake, hungry and dessert and be perfectly British
cozzy is short for swimming costume, which is what I’d actually say
I’ve never heard a scarf being called a muffler
You can use all of the “American” insults here and still remain British-sounding apart from jerk because no one says jerk. Some of those “British” insults sound a bit silly to me (please don’t call someone a plonker dear lord).
Don’t ever say cheerio unless you want to sound like a twat
1 cup yellow cake mix 1 cup confectioners’ sugar 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, cut into small squares 1/4 cup milk sprinkles
Instructions Mix cake mix and icing sugar in microwave-safe bowl. Add butter and milk. Don’t stir.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Stir immediately until completely combined. Add sprinkles. Do not overmix as sprinkle colour may bleed.
Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
*** UPDATE- One of our fellow followers (rhodeislandborn) tried this recipe and found a solution to the bleeding sprinkles. They used Funfetti cake batter instead of yellow cake batter and omitted the sprinkles. There is already sprinkles in this batter. She says that it came out great with this batter and the sprinkles did not bleed at all! Thank you very much for that feedback!
