Apart from her family the next most important thing in my nan's life is to make sure that she watches every showing of 'Deal or No Deal' and nothing or no one can come between her and the television when it is on!
Needless to say I am making her a 'Deal or No Deal' cake for her celebrations and I thought it might be fun to take you through each stage of making the cake, so that people can appreciate the amount of work and ingredients that go into making a special occasion cake and then perhaps understand why my prices are a little more than you would expect to pay for a shop bought cake.
The first thing I always start with is turning the oven on to make sure that it is up to temperature by the time the cakes go in, and then I line the tins. This in itself is quite time consuming.
My other secret tool is my food mixer, a Kenwood Titanium, which has a huge mixing bowl and a cover to stop everything flying everywhere!
