    No, I haven't .... I didn't suppose I would find an answer to my question there...
    I promise to search Wikipedia first, the next time.

    Thank you for your help .

    Although we don't use these expressions in Canada (As Wikipedia states, they are BrE), my British friends assure me that the only contexts one might say these (in the U.K.) are when talking about desserts or cooking (recipes etc...)
