Life is sweet: ‘Nigel Slater’s Icing on the Cake’

Nigel Slater's Icing on the Cake, TV review: Forget the suspiciously svelte Mary Berry - naughty Nigel likes to have his cake and eat it

Nigel Slater's Icing on the Cake (BBC4) was food porn so explicit it should have come with a censor's warning. Cheesecake glistened seductively in low lighting, cream oozed from the layers of a Victoria sponge, and icing sugar caressed the curves of a chocolate torte. Oh Nigel, you are naughty!
