Candice shared two photos on her Instagram on Friday that show the delicious cake she made for Tom and his family.

To accompany the photos, she wrote, “I wanted to share this and today seems like the right time to do it. A few weeks ago, I needed to make a beautiful cake, and this beautiful cake went to the one and only Captain Tom Moore.

“It is not the most beautiful or the most extravagant, but it was one of the proudest moments of my life to be able to offer this hero an early birthday cake with a dinner for his simply charming family ( we are just down the road) an honor does not cover it.

“I, we salute you sir, what a wonder you really are.” Thank you Colonel, for what you did then and for what you did today ❤️ #captaintommoore #veday # veday75 #Thankyou #hero ‘

Colonel Tom celebrated his birthday with his daughter Hannah, 49, her husband Colin and their two children Benjie, 16, and Georgia, 11.

Her eldest daughter Lucy was unable to travel from her home in Reading to participate in the celebration, but made a virtual appearance by video call.

The centenary was promoted from captain to honorary colonel last week after raising more than £ 32 million.

He now holds the Guinness World Record for the most money raised by an individual during a sponsored walk in the UK.

Colonel Tom also celebrated his birthday by achieving a second world record for the oldest person to have a number one single in the British rankings after the success of his duet with Michael Ball.

The record was previously held by Tom Jones, who reached No. 1 with [Barry] Islands In The Stream was 68 in 2006, 32 years younger than Tom, 100.

The hit version of the Liverpool Football Club anthem by Colonel Tom and Michael is also the best-selling single in 2020

Speaking from his home at the time, the war hero said, “What wonderful news to receive today, a # 1 single and a recordman too – my grandchildren can’t believe I am a recordman!

“I have to thank Michael Ball, the NHS Voices of Care Choir and everyone behind the scenes, who shared their talents and expertise to raise funds for the NHS, to whom we owe so much.

“And, of course, the public for the purchase of the single and the donation – we are in the same boat, and I will always be grateful for your support. And it just proves that you will never walk alone.

A cover of the song Foo Fighters, Times Like These, which stars Dua Lipa and Chris Martin, has since propelled Colonel Tom out of the top spot.
