A piece of cake . . ? Mirfield men are being urged to show the world what they're made of - in a culinary challenge.
Organisers of the town's agricultural show next Saturday have launched a men-only baking class.
And they're confident would-be chefs will display real flour power - and won't be left with egg on their faces.
Males are invited to bake a Victoria sandwich cake as part of the domestic exhibition. Committee member Arthur Smith is pictured ``in training".
Show chairman Betty Taylor said: "I'm sure there's a lot of hidden talent out there.
"Men never seem to step up and enter our baking classes. Now's the chance for them to shine.
"We added the class for something a bit different. We thought they could manage a Victoria sandwich."
Entries must be brought to the showground, off Huddersfield Road, by 10am on Saturday.
Judges will admire and sample the entries before the tent opens to the public at 12.30. The winner will collect £1.50, the second-placed chef gets £1 and the third prize winner will receive 50p.
Participants will need 4oz sugar, 4oz margarine or butter, 4oz self-raising flour and two eggs.
Cream the butter and sugar, add the beaten eggs carefully, then fold in the sieved flour.
Put the mixture into two 7in round sandwich tins.
Bake at 180°C for 20 to 25 minutes. When cool, sandwich the two cakes together with a generous layer of raspberry jam and dust the top with icing sugar.
