A two-year-old boy has become an unlikely star after featuring in his very own hilarious baking tutorial – and actually kind of smashing it.
Okay, there are a few areas where there’s room for improvement, like when he ends up smearing a flour moustache onto his face before shoving his tongue in the batter for a cheeky taste, or the fact that he doesn’t appear to have remembered to get dressed.
But all in all, the little dude does a better job than many of us would do, creaming the butter and sugar, cracking in some eggs, mixing it all into some flour before finishing it off with turquoise frosting and sprinkles.
The toddler, who is called Roman, ends up with a pretty decent-looking sponge cake, too – even if the decoration is a little, er, rustic.
Plus, you can’t deny the kid’s got some sterling manners – “Sugar, please!” “Butter, please!” “Thanks!”
He even has a go at cracking an egg, something that some adults can’t even do that easily, before politely asking if his mum can give him a hand.
Posting the clip to YouTube, Roman’s mum wrote: “Say hello to a new series called ‘Roman’s Cooking Corner’! I hope you enjoy watching it as much as he did making this cake!! If you have any future recipes you’d like to see Roman make, be sure to comment below!!”
One impressed YouTuber commented: “I think there supposed to be a cake underneath all those sprinkles. Lol. You’re on your way to the big leagues.”
Come on, somebody get this kid a TV deal – he’d do a better job than that of some of the celebrity chefs we’ve been lumbered with.
I mean, Gordon Ramsay can’t even make a pad Thai, while Gino D’Acampo is busy having a go at kids for liking pineapple on pizza.
And then there’s Jamie, who’s currently under fire for his controversial jerk rice product.
Dawn Butler, Labour MP for Brent Central in London, took to Twitter to ask him: “I’m just wondering do you know what #Jamaican #jerk actually is?
“It’s not just a word you put before stuff to sell products.”
TV chef Rustie Lee was also in agreement when she appeared on Good Morning Britain.
She said: “At the end of the day, I’ve tasted it and it tastes like Caribbean rice and beans with flavours in it. The jerk part of it is barbecue and you can’t barbecue rice.
“Jerk chicken… goes onto meat, it doesn’t go onto rice. She chose a word that made us talk. Would we have been here talking about it [otherwise]?”
Come on Roman, you’d better show these old boys how it’s done.
