And doesn’t he look as proud as punch!? Speaking to New Idea Food, Caroline says cooking is one of 20-year-old Marshall’s favourite hobbies - along with a range of other special interests!
She says: ‘He is a collector of information and has a love of general knowledge. He loves going to the gym and Karate (he is a purple belt) playing the card game Magic the Gathering (he plays in tournaments regularly) ... and of course cooking!’
It wasn’t long before Marshall - and that beautiful smile! - won over thousands of fans on the Kmart Pie Maker group.
Said one: ‘So beautiful.. so happy.. and those pies look scrumptious 😋’ Added another: ‘I am a support worker and cook every Wednesday with one of my guys. Reckon I’ll have to take my pie maker with me sometime! Good job Marshall they look amazing!!’
Said a third: ‘WELL DONE MARSHALL they are soooooooooo much better than mine xx’ Added one more: Look at that smile, it’s worth a million dollars! 💜💚💙💛❤️
Other mums of children with autism also commented, sharing their admiration for Marshall.
Said one: ‘Seeing 5.1k likes and hundreds of comments on this post after four hours warms my heart. My son also has autism, and I worry constantly about the way the world will treat him. It’s clear to see that understanding and support is around in abundance. 💙’
Added another: ‘Fantastic job Marshall 🤗🤗 My son this week is going to make pizza pies with his support worker.’
