-This is fun, isn't it?
Like making mud pies?
Looks like we need to...
Should we get some water?
This is Jake, and he is five years old.
Can you put some water in mine, please?
Good boy, Jake.
Shall we stir?
I need to mix mine up.
Jake is making mud pies with his mum.
Pop it in for me.
There we go.
-What colour has your water gone?
Cos it's all...?
-Muddy. Good boy.
Jake, all this baking's making me hungry.
-Are you hungry?
-Yeah, I'm starving.
-Shall we go get something to eat?
Let's leave this here, then. Come on, then. Let's go.
Today, Jake is going to do something new for the first time,
but what will it be?
This is Jake's memory box.
It helps him remember all the exciting things that have happened.
See if you can remember what goes in it today?
-Jake and Mum are having some lunch.
-Making mud cakes makes you hungry, doesn't it?
-Are you finished, then?
Let's drink up and let's go pay the lady, then.
Wow, those cakes look delicious.
Look at these cakes.
Wow, look at them.
They look awesome.
-Which one would you like?
-That rainbow one.
You like the rainbow one?
Wouldn't it be fun to make a cake like that, Jake?
I think I would like the chocolate orange one.
Let's go pay the lady.
How are these made?
-Would you like to come into the factory and see?
How exciting, Jake.
You get to see the cakes being baked in the factory.
Baking is a type of cooking that usually uses an oven.
The most common baked food is bread,
but many other things are baked,
like cakes and cookies.
First you mix up a dough or batter
and then you bake it in the oven until it's cooked.
Cakes are often used to celebrate special occasions.
Baking is a good way to have fun with your family.
Jake has come to the factory to help bake a rainbow cake,
but first he must wash his hands and put his apron on.
So, we've got all of our ingredients here. So, what's this one?
-What's that one?
-And this one?
-And this one, do you know what that one is?
-And that's milk.
Flour, good boy.
So, first of all we're going to put our egg into the bowl
and our sugar as well.
It's mixing everything together.
Bethany adds all the other ingredients to the cake mix.
And this is the cake mix ready to go in the tins, see?
How do you make it different colours, then?
We add different colourings and flavours.
What are the different colours?
We have purple, blue, green,
yellow, orange and red.
What's your favourite?
-Um, the blue one.
-The blue one.
-The blue one.
Now we'll put the flavour in.
Mmm. That will help the cake taste yummy.
Now it's time for the colouring.
So, we'll do the blue one first.
-Do you want to mix this one?
It's changing colours.
-It's changing colours?
-To blue, to proper blue.
That must be the blueberry flavour.
-I wonder what the red one is, Jake.
-Should I mix the rest while you mix that one?
Good mixing, Jake.
Time to pour them into their trays
and put them in the oven to cook.
That's a big oven.
Once the case is cooked Bethany adds the icing to each of the layers
then spreads it all over the outside of the cake.
-Do you want to put the sweets on now?
It's time to decorate the top of the cake.
Wow! What a great job, Jake.
Well done. You've done really well at making the cake,
-Looks brilliant. High five. Yeah.
The first thing to go into Jake's memory box is the rainbow cake.
-Shall we go in here?
-After visiting the cake factory
Jake's decided he'd like to make his dad a surprise cake.
He's going to a baking class to get some practice.
Welcome, boys and girls, to our baking session.
Today we're going to be making some fairy cakes.
Let's get ready to bake.
First, Jake adds butter and caster sugar to his bowl.
Another one. Throw that in.
-In goes the egg.
-Tap, tap, tap.
-Be careful not to drop the shell in.
-Oh, that's it.
-That's it. Well done.
-Time to whisk it all together.
Well done. Look at that. Can you feel it going z-z-z-z-z?
In goes the self-raising flour along with some vanilla and milk,
and time to mix it all together with the rest of the ingredients.
So, give your mixture one last fold,
and then we're going to get ready to pop it in our cake tin.
That's a good boy. Well done.
The next bit is your favourite bit. What's your favourite bit?
-When they come out of the...?
-And you get to...?
Pop it in here.
The fairy cakes will take 15 minutes to bake.
I wonder what they'll look like when they're cooked.
Careful, the oven's hot.
-Look at these, Jake.
-I can smell them.
They smell delicious, don't they? These are your cupcakes.
Now it's time for the finishing touches.
Well done, everybody.
I think it's time now to eat our cakes.
Let's have a taste.
How does it taste?
The second thing into the memory box is the baking class.
Back at home, Jake and Mum are looking at the recipe
to make Dad's surprise cake.
Jake, seeing as you like baking so much
and Daddy's coming home early today, shall we bake him a cake
-and surprise him?
-This is his favourite one.
It's a Victoria sponge. But we need lots of ingredients.
Shall we have a look in the cupboards
-and see what we've got?
-Come on, then.
Wow, a Victoria sponge cake?
That sounds yummy!
A Victoria sponge cake is made by putting strawberry jam and cream
between two layers of cake, like a sandwich.
It was named after Queen Victoria,
who lived over 100 years ago and liked to eat the cake.
Can we check the cupboard?
Jake and mum begin gathering all the ingredients
to make Dad's Victoria sponge cake.
Now they've washed their hands, the first ingredient
-to go in is the caster sugar.
-Shall we pop it in this big bowl?
-Could you pour that in for me, please?
-Next they need to put in blocks of butter.
Now for the fun part.
It's going everywhere.
-Is it all mixing it together?
And what do we need to do next?
-Can you crack them at the side for me?
-You're very good at cracking eggs, Jake.
Give me the shell.
-It looks like two eyes.
-It does look like two eyes.
-There we go.
-In goes the self-raising flour.
So, what's happening?
-It's going out.
-In goes the vanilla...
-And put the milk in.
-..and the milk.
Would you give that a mix for me with your spoon?
And then Jake helps Mum pour the mix into the tins.
-Is it like the mud pies you made yesterday?
-What were you doing with them?
Tap, tap, tap, pat, pat, pat.
Into the oven they go, ready to bake.
The third thing into the memory box is the cake ingredients.
Now it's time to wash up all those dishes.
This one looks like a real mess.
-That one is a real mess, isn't it?
That must have been your spoon.
Jake and Mum decorate the garden as a surprise for dad
before checking on the cake.
Let's have a look.
What do you think of them?
That looks delicious.
Time to add the fillings.
Spread it all over.
Daddy's going to love this cake.
He's going to really love this cake.
-Help spread that one out for me, too.
And what are we going to put on top?
There we go, that's plenty on top, isn't it?
All finished and good to go.
I bet dad's going to love his surprise cake.
-I think I can hear something. Oh, who is it?
It's Daddy and Harley and Uncle Doug.
Welcome to your celebration.
-Have you made this all by yourself?
-Hey, have you?
-Do you like it?
-It looks fantastic.
Now for the best part.
-There we go.
Get stuck in. Mm.
What a tasty treat.
-That's lovely, that, Jakey.
-You made that all on your own?
Wow. Jake, it looks like everybody is enjoying your cake.
What a great job.
The fourth thing into the memory box is the surprise party.
Today Jake baked his first cake.
Do you remember what happened?
Let's have a look in the memory box.
First, Jake went to a cake factory
to see how the cakes were made.
Next he went to a baking class
and learned some new skills.
Then Jake mixed the ingredients to make his dad a Victoria sponge cake.
And finally, he had a surprise party for Dad.
Today, Jake baked his first cake.
There's a first time for everything.
Join Jake as he bakes a cake for the first time. Jake and his mum begin by making mud cakes in a mud kitchen. They then have lunch in a cafe where they see some really big cakes. Jake and his mum are invited to the factory to see the cakes getting made. Jake learns how to make a rainbow cake and helps the baker to decorate it.
Back at home, Jake bakes Dad a welcome home cake. Whilst the cake is baking, they decorate the garden for Dad's big surprise. Dad arrives home and they all celebrate by eating Jake's surprise cake.
