Have your say

On Sunday week we are doing our first Big Cake Bake.

We are asking our listeners to bake away, sell their cakes by hosting a community coffee morning and raise money for Cash for Kids.

Thanks to The Great British Bake Off we are going baking crazy and this week on my show, I proved how easy it is to bake a cake.

I treated my colleagues to a luscious chocolate cake, which I made live on my show.

Apart from the ingredients, all I needed was a mug and a microwave. What could possibly have gone wrong?

Well, maybe the picture above will give you some idea. I know what Mary Berry would say, but at least it tasted amazing.
