A MUM-OF-FOUR whose home and bakery was ravished by a fire six months ago created a custom-made birthday cake for a TV star.

Laura Worthington, who owns Laura’s Little Bakery, has baked for the likes of Steven Gerrard, Elvis Costello's mum and Jonny Vegas.

But her latest delectable creation for TV duo Ant & Dec is her most 'high profile order' so far.

The business-owner was contacted by an ITV producer about baking an 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' themed birthday cake for Ant's 46th birthday.

She set about making a two-tier decorated sponge, wrapped in a forest scene with chocolate and red velvet layers which was to be delivered to the North Wales castle set of this year’s series.

Ms Worthington, who grew up in Kendal and has family living in Barrow, said baking the special birthday cake was a 'real high moment' for her 10-year-old business, which is based in Liverpool.

She said: "Someone from the production team got in touch with me. I didn't know what it was about at first, all I knew was that they needed a cake in Wales.

"The woman from ITV told me that she had followed what had happened to by business after the fire and donated.

"She said if she ever saw the opportunity to use Laura's Little Bakery she would, which is so lovely.

"I was given a sketch and told what they wanted included in the cake: a forest, a castle, a phone box.

"She said you can probably guess what it's for but I genuinely had no idea. I didn't click on it was for I'm a Celeb until she actually told me.

"I hardly ever watch TV because I'm constantly in the kitchen.

"But I've grown up watching Ant and Dec since their Byker Grove days and I was a big fan of theirs.

"They wouldn't tell me what it was for but after a quick Google, I worked out it was Ant's birthday coming up so I put two and two together.

"My partner Tom and our baby went off to Wales and delivered the cake which was really exciting."

The presenting duo even featured Laura's creation on their joint Instagram page, gushing about the specially-made cake to their 4.4m followers.

"I heard they featured the cake on their Instagram page which was pretty awesome," Ms Worthington said.

"It was lovely watching their reaction to the cake and receiving so much positive feedback."

Ms Worthington said the high-profile request meant even more to the business-owner after her home and bakery was destroyed due to a 'devastating' fire in May.

The mum-of-four grabbed her two-year-old daughter and escaped through her bedroom window after their home in Wavertree became engulfed in smoke.

Ms Worthington’s sister Tina Gelling, from Barrow, launched a GoFundMe page which reached nearly £1,000 in 24 hours.

Forced to cancel and refund all her upcoming orders, Ms Worthington bounced back better than ever and built her business back up to what is today.

She said: "After a really crap six months, it was great to end the year on a high with something positive.

"I basically had to start everything from scratch again after the fire.

"I had to buy new mixers, new tins, new equipment - it's been a long process.

"It's been pretty hard going, so it's really special for people to put their trust in me to bake their cakes and get such a positive response."
