“Baking is like being a builder…it’s just different materials”. That’s what Dave Mason told the Sun newspaper about his passion for doing the impossible with cake. The Cake maker from Cornwall once featured on the Alan Titchmarsh show where his work was praised by none less than Paul Hollywood one of the judges of the Great British Bake Off. Judging by this stunning carp cake, we’d say Dave has no need to be “koi” about his considerable baking and artistic talents.
