The best cake recipes to bake for special occasions

Cake helped get us through the past year. It wasn’t something you made when you’d invited friends for tea – because nobody was coming for tea – it was just a source of comfort, of sweetness, for the family.

One of the very first cakes I made for my husband that he really loved was a Prune Cake made with baby food. I had just had my first child and I was buying baby food all the time. My baby was a picky eater. A few years earlier, I had watched my sister, Joy feed her baby every kind of baby food fruit and vegetable you could buy including prunes and wondered how she got her to eat them.
