Recently, I published a post informing you that a friend had voted in the recent local government election because the granny of the candidate had made exceedingly good cakes. Well there's more to this than I thought. In today's Telegraph we learn that baking cakes is regarded as great family bonding time by 59% of Britons. According to a survey of 1803 people carried out by Dr Oetker, the baking company, 27% of respondents say their fondest childhood memory is baking with their parents or grandparents. At long last, we may have found the secret to reversing the trend amongst young people to not vote.
