Happy National Cake Day!

Here at Bookends HQ, we love any excuse for a slice of cake and a cup of tea. So on National Cake Day, we will definitely be indulging ourselves in a slice of cake (or two…)!

To celebrate National Cake Day, we are giving you an exclusive recipe from the queen of cakes herself, Mary Berry, from her latest book Fast Cakes.

Happy baking!

Marble Cake

Children love this cake and it is not difficult to make and looks good when cut. Ice it as you like – try the chocolate icing on page 97 – or serve it plain, sprinkled with icing or caster sugar.
