Jacinda Ardern makes a ladybug cake for daughter Neve’s fourth birthday – but can you spot her shortcut?

  • The New Zealand prime minister baked a ladybug cake for her daughter Neve
  • She used a Sharpie to draw on the eyes of the bug onto two lollipops 
  • Ms Ardern described baking her daughter’s birthday cakes as a ‘stress bomb’ 
  • Her husband Clarke Gayford showed off his skills last year with a television cake 

Jacinda Ardern has tried her hand at baking for her daughter Neve’s fourth birthday – using a cheeky shortcut to whip up a cute ladybug cake.

The New Zealand Prime Minister said the entire cake was edible, except for the eyes which she created out of two lollipops with black circles drawn on with a Sharpie.

‘This year was my turn on the birthday cake (or what I’ve come to know as the ‘stress bomb’),’ she wrote.

‘Neve requested a Ladybug, and after several disasters underneath A LOT of icing, this was the result. All edible aside from the eyes (I resorted to sharpie on lollipops).’

Her husband Clarke Gayford had impressed with his television cake last year for their daughter. 

The cake was accompanied by a projector casting the then-3-year-old Neve’s favourite cartoons onto the icing.

At the time Ms Ardern joked her partner did such a good job he could do it again in 2022, telling local news Mr Gayford spent more time baking the cake than planning their wedding.

The PM has played down her cooking skills in previous cake announcements, admitting Neve’s second birthday cake – a chocolate piano – needed the support of a can of lentils to stand up.
