Large slice

Mary Berry, in a Press Association feature in many Bank Holiday papers, on the BBC's relationship with baking. .

 “Things have changed from when I used to do it. When I did my first television, Celebration Cakes, the BBC’s Alan Yentob said: ‘Nobody likes cakes’. Well that was OK. We did it, but I did everything, all the props, all the ones at different stages. But now, I get so much support and help and care and advice, television’s changed.”

I think she means a short BBC1 series called Mary Berry's Ultimate Cakes, which ran in 1995, when Alan 'Yum Yum' Yentob was Controller and still developing a sweet tooth.
