About a month ago, I discovered a 1905 dictionary of slang available, digitized, on-line. I’ve been rummaging through it ever since, enjoying the random discoveries that I’m making. Some of the phrases, like “to fall on one’s face” or “things are looking up,” are so familiar that it’s easy to forget that they’re slang at all; others are bizarre and even difficult to comprehend, despite the careful definitions. I’ve chosen some of the stranger or more appealing ones as names for my most recent batch of gobstoppers. I hope that they amuse and entertain. And if you really can’t bear not knowing what one of them means, check out the dictionary here on the marvelous archive.org.Now, down to business: Every gobstopper is one-of-a-kind; what you see here is what’s available at present. To claim a cake that you love, email me. I’ll respond to let you know if you were the first to claim it, and will follow up with a PayPal invoice shortly. Remember that colours vary across devices, so please do ask if you have any questions. Yarn details are located here.
