If I wasn’t already full, I’d say I was in heaven.
Spread in front of me is a huge table covered with cakes – cupcakes, cakes baked in ice cream cones, layer cakes, fondant fancies – all decorated with pastel-coloured icing, sprinkles, chocolate shavings, gummies and candied eggs. They’re all so beautiful and different that it almost seems a shame to cut them up to take a bite – just a tiny bite – of each one. But the head teacher is standing on the other side of the table with her camera, and she’s counting on me to do this.
It’s not easy, but I choose five batches as a ‘shortlist’. I leave aside the cakes that look just a little too good – they might be shop-bought, or maybe someone’s mum helped them with the decorating.
