Finally we get to cut the cake.
The first cut is as satisfying as you could hope. Cascades of hidden sweets trickle out from the centre. Bright stripes of sponge, bouncy and fluffy. The structure even seems sound. Mary Berry’s recipe and Eims’ new stand mixer stood up to the test quite well.
Oohs and ahhs abound. Lil D is very pleased with herself.
Happy cake-eating silence.
