Let them eat cake!!

My mum Monica was a wonderful cook, of everything,  but especially cakes and pastries  When I started making cakes myself, I suddenly realised I didn’t need any  instruction because I remembered so clearly watching her make cakes and buns on countless occasions.

I like baking, but I am nowhere near as good as she was…however, it is great fun and a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion, even if the results are a bit lop-sided they usually taste alright!  I do try different recipes, but I nearly always resort to the old faithfuls, and my cookery bible for sweet things is the Be-Ro recipe book.
