Memories are great; but I often wonder if a memory is somehow just my imagination ... it's an age thing. When I married at the end of the '60s, we had the reception at home. My mum made the buffet. What I remember is going to the local baker and buying the cobs. This was a circular, flat product about 18 inches across, scored into a number of cobs. From the whole, you tore off the individual cobs. Then cut and filled them as desired. I think this was the origin of the name 'cob' as the whole had the appearance of a cobbled road. This is the closest image I can find, but it's not what I remember; these cobs are obviously baked in 6's. There were a lot more (smaller) cobs in the round baked product that I remember. Anyone any idea what I'm talking about?
