The epitome of all that is good in the world, cake baking is becoming ever more popular (and competitive) thanks to TV shows such as the Great British Bake Off, and now Junior Bake Offis inspiring a whole new generation of bakers.

We're going to go a step further and make our cake chocolatey with a gorgeous Chantilly cream filling. Your child or children will learn how to roll their own cake with our tried and tested method - a skill that will definitely impress family and friends when it appears at the dining table and would make Prue Leith proud.
