Giovanna Fletcher's son Buzz couldn't have the big party he was hoping for in honour of his sixth birthday this weekend, due to his family taking precautions against coronavirus. However, he did get a hugely impressive cake, thanks to his mum! Author, social media star and podcaster Giovanna shared a video of her creation to Instagram in a video which showed her sinking a knife into the cake, which appeared plain on the outside, covered with white buttercream. When she cut a large slice, however, five layers of rainbow sponge were revealed, as well as a special surprise in the middle of the cake.

The mum-of-three had filled the centre with Mini Eggs and Haribo sweets for an extra sugar hit, and as Buzz realised what she'd done, he could be heard shouting in excitement: "Sweeties inside!" Giovanna captioned the (very) sweet video: "Well this one-trick pony pulled it out the bag! We decided to postpone Buzz’s party with his school mates and have a very small thing at home instead. It broke my heart but seemed like the best thing to do. Well, I think the cake made up for it. Only cut out some of the middle layers and filled it with Haribo and mini eggs, didn’t I!! Love this reaction from Buzz."

The 35-year-old's fans were just as impressed, commenting: "Looks gorgeous," "Amazing," and: "Yayyyyyyyyyyyy @britishbakeoff watch out." Giovanna shares three sons with her husband Tom: Buzz, four-year-old Buddy, and one-year-old Max. McBusted star Tom shot to fame in the band McFly but he and Giovanna knew each other long before he was famous.
