Whether you prefer something sweeter, fruity, chocolatey, or lighter, we all have our weakness when it comes to cake. There’s also always a reason to have cake, so if you’re expecting guests, or celebrating a birthday; perhaps you’ve got a bake sale or you simply want to have one to hand for when friends pop by for afternoon tea, we’ve got the ideal recipe to suit every occasion.
Baking a beautiful cake doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. The baking itself should be simple enough, and for a lot of the recipes if you’re looking for something more elaborate and show-stopping, then you can take some time on the decorating.
