Lockdown in the UK has had different effects on us all, but one unanimous response to the strange times we’re living through is that everyone is trying to become the next Mary Berry. A surprising addition to the stress baking crew is none other than David and Victoria Beckham, who took to Instagram to share a hilarious insight into their countryside lockdown.
With Victoria doing her best Paul Hollywood impression and directing David Beckham in the steps – including the delightful innuendo ‘Put your prick in the hole’ when it came to testing if the cake was cooked or not with a toothpick – the resulting video is nothing short of wonderful. The cake, however, might not win any awards in Mary Berry’s book, but as David says in the Instagram video, ‘It’s one of those cakes that actually tastes a lot better than it looks’ and we’ll just have to take his word on it.
Aside from proving how funny this duo are, the video shows that in situations like this, we’re all the same. A lot of the House & Garden staff have taken to baking their way through the lockdown too and understand Victoria’s jibes at David regarding how well acquainted she’s become with the dishwasher of late. We wait in anticipation for the Beckham’s next instalment in what British Vogue has dubbed The Great Beckham Bake Off. It’s certainly spicing up our lockdown life…
