inside Samantha Cameron's Downing Street kitchen

By Christopher Hope, Senior Political Correspondent,The Telegraph

The cakes were due to be sold to staff at Downing Street at tea time, with the money raised going towards the work of the Comic Relief charity. In the photographs, released by Number 10, the Prime Minister's wife is showing off the moonrocks, flapjacks and tiffin cakes she baked today.

Comic Relief wants to inspire the nation to get out their baking trays and raise money for Red Nose Day on March 15th

Her children Elwen (left) and Nancy (right) are behind her, helping with the cooking and trying some of the cakes. The Camerons live in a flat above 11 Downing Street because it is bigger than Number 10's apartment. The photographs also gave another chance for people to view the Cameron's £25,000 kitchen, with floating shelves from her mother Lady Astor's shop Oka, a Magimix worth up to £299, an £895 dishwasher and £130 toaster.

Mrs Cameron said: “Baking is such a brilliant and easy way to raise money for Red Nose Day. I know the children are really looking forward to selling our cakes around the offices in Downing Street.

The Prime Minister tweeted a picture of his wife in the kitchen this morning saying 'Chaos in the kitchen this morning, my family baking for @rednoseday'

“I hope lots of people all over the country are also baking, or finding other fun ways to support Comic Relief.” Comic Relief wants to inspire the nation to bake cakes and sell them for charity and raise money for Red Nose Day too.

A special baking fundraising kit, with recipe, and the bunting and price labels modelled by Mrs Cameron, is available from www.rednoseday.com/fundraise Comic Relief was set up in 1985 by comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis and comedian Lenny Henry in response to famine in Ethiopia. Since it was established, it has raised over £750million to help people living incredibly tough lives across Africa and here in the UK.
