A Big Thank You for a Big Cake

Our master cake maker, Abby baked our news team and the helpers an amazing cake. With all the colourful layers, it was gorgeous.  We all have to say a huge thank you to Abby for the cake. No doubt we will see her on British Bake Off one day!
Thank You!
(And I bet you’re all jealous news teams around the country – did you have such great cake!)
