The first-time baker

I've been busy cooking, feeding my family of 10.

Photo shows chocolate birthday cake decorated with icing and sprinkles and a number nine candle.

I’m not a good cook, but since lockdown started I've been busy learning new skills, trying out a new recipe every day.

It's my first time attempting to bake anything, really. I even did my son Connelly's birthday cake!
