Her Mum would like to say that she is her daughters food hero but her real hero is Cupcake Jemma. When Gemma's Dad had to spend a lot of time in hospital last year fighting leukaemia it was watching Cupcake Jemma videos on You Tube that gave Gemma a much needed distraction.
Gemma did a great job making home made pasta using the Phillips Pasta and Noodle maker. It is an amazing machine but even more amazing that a 5yo can make pasta on her own. Her recipe Penne with Pancetta, Peas and Bocconcini.
The competition a child under 13 making pasta. I think you will agree she has done an amazing job. Her Mum got a great laugh during the filming and was shocked when Gemma gave her 'channel' a plug. Yep all those Cupcake Jemma videos she has watched has taught her the techniques. Gemma as soon as the video was finished suggested to her Mum her next video be how to make sparkly playdough. So expect more from 'Cooking with Gemma'
