Holly Willoughby shows off impressive homemade birthday cake she baked for 'dear friend'

HOLLY Willoughby has shown off an impressive homemade birthday cake that she baked for "dear friend" Neil 'Moon' McCallum this weekend.

The 39-year-old star revealed yesterday that she was attempting to create a rainbow-themed treat, and shared the finished result with followers today.

Taking to her Instagram page, the mother-of-three shared a collage of the baking process.

The final piece was decorated to look like the moon, covered in white icing with choc buttons working as craters.

The This Morning presenter had shakily written 'Moon' in icing, and added a Lego man holding an American flag with the birthday boy's face on it.

Chocolate stars patterned the border, and another photo of the cut cake revealed that Holly's rainbow efforts had paid off.

Green, yellow, red, and blue sponge is stacked on top of each other, with the blonde beauty completing the space effect with a rocket candle.

She proudly captioned the post: "Cake complete! Happy birthday to my dear friend Moon Man… love ya! ? ? ? ? ✨????❤️"

Holly also posted a picture of the cake to her Instagram Story, adding a rocket gif and David Bowie's Starman.

Fans were blown away by her efforts, with one commenting: "Looks amazing I bet it tastes good too."

Another added: "Morning Holly, get you; Holly the baker! Looks amazing."

A third gushed: "Looks fantastic!! Well done ?? save me a slice? ??"

Yesterday, Holly posted a snap of four bowls of sponge cake mix – all different colours.

One was yellow, another blue, one more red, and the final still needed to have it's green dye mixed in.

Explaining what was going on in the post's caption, Holly simply wrote: "Rainbow cake incoming ?".

The cosy snap came after the busy mum teased a look at the swimming pool in her £3million London home.

She had the outdoor pool built in 2013, but hadn't before revealed her private oasis.

Posing with pet cat Bluebell for new photos for a fashion shoot with Marks & Spencer at her home, the pool is visible to Holly's left behind an iron wrought gate.

It has glass sides with sunbeds positioned around the edge.

Holly shares the stunning home with husband Dan Baldwin and their three children; 11-year-old Harry, nine-year-old Belle, and five-year-old Chester.

Holly is normally very private about her home life but has been forced to share more with followers in recent months due to lockdown restrictions.

The star enlisted her two oldest children to turn their lavish garden into the set of her new clothing photoshoot – with the kids even snapping the pictures themselves.

Holly also updated followers regularly during her family's two-week quarantine after their trip to Portugal this summer.

Desperate for distractions in that time, Holly shared snaps of her and the children decorating doughnuts, also revealing that they had tie-dyed T-Shirts and even made sushi in other creative pass-times.
