THE BBC’s popular baking show is to be followed in the schedules by a cake-eating competition.
How Much Cake Can You Eat? pits six unusually greedy people against eat other as they enter the Great British Bake Off marquee and race to eat all the cake in it.
Competitors include housewife Joanna Kramer, who can eat an entire Swiss roll as if it were a normal sized chocolate bar.
She said: “My tactic is to smash up all the elegantly layered cakes with my fists, then cram the resulting mess into my mouth with both hands.
“My strengths include an unusually high tolerance to cream, although I’m hoping none of the cakes ahve raspberries in as they make my glands come up.”
Fellow competitor Roy Hobbs believes he can eat ‘an immense amount’ of cake: “At home we don’t eat anything but cake. I even make something called ‘cake drink’ which is cake that’s been in a blender.”
How Much Cake Can You Eat? will be justified by a token ‘popular science element’ in which competitors are hooked up to a machine that analyses the physiological effects of shitloads of butter.
