About this Bake

My 4 year old daughter and I followed a Mary Berry recipe. We adapted it to create a birthday cake for her Daddy. This was her first attempt at piping cream and making chocolate decorations (with a bit of help from Mummy)!

Top tip

To achieve the look of page 38 of the cookbook do not let the 4 year old pipe the cream!
