It's the WEEKEND! What's this? A Sunday upload? 'How unusual', you might be thinking. Well get used to it because there's going to be more of these! Every other Sunday, I'm going to be showing you a classic cake or bake that is perfect for the weekend and you can bake along with me as you watch the video. Hopefully you already have your ingredients ready (if not don't worry, just go get them and watch this video in your own time).
