Samantha Cameron: Baking is no piece of cake for me

YOU might think the Prime Minister would be a little too busy running the country to spend time making cakes…

Yet his wife Samantha Cameron has revealed that when it comes to baking, her husband David and daughter Nancy, 11, both rise to the occasion.

“I don’t bake. My husband and daughter bake but I don’t,” she admitted to the Radio Times.

“I love chocolate brownies, though. I’d probably need a little help from [my daughter] Nancy to bake them.”

Mrs Cameron, 44, will appear next week as a contestant in a special Sport Relief version of the BBC hit show Great British Bake Off.

She does battle with comedian Jason Manford, EastEnders star Maddy Hill and ex-England goalkeeper David James, who are all trying to impress judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood with their baking skills.

The PM’s wife revealed she was happy to take part but was “scared we will have to bake something that I haven’t even heard of”.

In one task she was asked to bake canapés. “I practised a little bit as I’d never made a canapé,” she admitted.

Also to appear in a future episode of the show is ex-shadow chancellor Ed Balls.

The 48-year-old, who is married to Labour MP Yvette Cooper, said: “Every year, I do a birthday cake for each of our three children.”
