“I am now doing, what I have called ‘the lockdown cake’ , it’s basically the same story from each customer who has contacted me. They were meant to have been going to a birthday and that birthday party is no longer happening and they’ll be in say, New Zealand. So they’ll say to me, ‘could you take a cake over to my boyfriend, who I was supposed to be seeing tomorrow’. So they’ll pay me to make a cake, I’ll drive over to the boyfriends, knock on the door, stand 2 meters apart, they’ll open the door and it’s rather nice really, seeing people break into a massive smile”.
