A Cake Making Cake – level 2

01-06-2021 15:00

A bakery in England wanted to earn money for a children’s hospital, so it created a big cake covered in marzipan that took 400 hours to create by hand.

The cake itself makes cakes. You can see the ingredients go into the cake, turn into small cakes, go into a small machine, and come out as finished, decorated cakes inside of boxes.

The large cake could feed 2,000 people, but it is on display for charity, as the bakery hopes that more people will get ideas to bake for charity.

Difficult words: marzipan (a soft material people use to make cake decorations), ingredients (the parts in a recipe), charity (an organisation that helps people or places).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
