A boozy bake has been created by Demi Salt of Nottingham-based Bijou Beauty Bakes for the mother of a friend.

Made in the shape of a handbag, the cake conceals a wine bag - containing roughly five glasses of cream rosé wine - behind vanilla sponge and fondant.

Salt said the birthday girl had wanted a real wine-dispensing handbag, but the cake was a more affordable option.

Having started baking just 18 months ago, Salt decided to create her own bakery business, Bijou Beauty Bakes, after winning a silver award at last year’s Cake International competition in Birmingham for a pug-shaped cake.

She is currently waiting for her food hygiene certificate to come through, and said she would charge between £125 and £150 for a wine-dispensing cake, which serves up to 20 people.
