I might be disappointed if I knew what an ambient cake was. Is it one that floats around?.......is it a fairy cake?

Ambient is a retail term meaning same temperature as the surroundings, ie food that doesnt need to be kept in a fridge or freezer - for example, Mr Kipling mince pies are ambient, fresh cream cakes are not.

What Waitrose is saying is that they haven't got cakes at room temperature because of the severe weather conditions?

Ambient is cake you wear - it means enveloping, all-around, surrounding - so imagine a marzipan coat or a victoria sponge sleeping bag...
BoL - you related to the baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells?

The difference to Tesco is, Waitrose even laminated the sign. It's a pretty serious shortage but looks incredible posh at the same time. Let's hope temperatures are rising soon and Lewes will be spared malnourishment.
By the way BoL, if I heat up the room to normothermia, will I be ambient?

I am happy to reort that the shortage of ambient cakes seems to have been remedied. However, it takes 2 and a half years to get to the check out so you may find your cakes are out of date by the time you get there.
