I wonder whether when the teachers set that task they were anticipating the number of children who would rise to the challenge and just how many cakes would be taken into school! Every week it seems that at least two children have taken in a cake - which the teacher has cut up and to the children's delight let them eat.
Inspired by the Rainbow Cake I made last month for Christopher's birthday, Lara decided to make a red, white and blue Jubilee Cake. Apart from putting the cake tins in and out of the oven and tipping the cake out of the tins she made it all herself with me just telling her what to do. She can even recite the recipe from memory now!
Here's the finished cake complete with flags printed from the internet........
......... and here's the portion that came home after the class had had their fill.
It certainly was a VERY BRIGHT cake and we may have to make another one in a few weeks time for the Jubilee Weekend!
