So as you may or may not know my eldest (Henry 11, 12 next Friday) has developed a real passion for cooking.  Whether it’s helping with the Sunday roast, or cutting the veg for the weeknight salad, he’ll do what he can.  However sweet treats are always a particular favourite.  So here are our top 5 favourite kids cake recipes, perfect for cooking with your kids!
