Emma Willis' son was given the best birthday treat this year – designing his very own cake! Ace, who turned nine on Wednesday, was given free rein to create his own masterpiece and the finished product he came up with is a real piece of art.

Emma proudly showed off her son's design on Instagram, first sharing the sketch of the four-tiered cake Ace had drawn. "He wanted to design his own cake this year! And after a few technical tweaks…" Emma wrote.
