Bakes like Berry!

After a couple of weeks off baking due to Birthday Cake ( mine) I baked another cake from Mary Berry’s 100 Sweet Treats and Puds. Finally I have the Bakes like Berry to hoot and hallooh about. This one is great, super, gorgeous,and divine, the sponge is as soft and light as can be , in short SCRUMMY!
