And the winner of the Great British Bake Off is…Tom DeLonge

If you ever find yourself stressed out by the sh*tshow that is 2020, might I suggest watching a couple of episodes of The Great British Bake Off? Yes, it’s a cooking show, but it’s done with such grace and calmness that it’ll drain away that build-up of cortisol.

The program has returned with Cake Week. Contestant Dave from Hampshire decided that he was going to create a sponge cake in the image of Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge. You read that correctly.

His creation, called “Three Flavours of Tom,” features strawberry and mint with chocolate buttercream.

Nice pun, Kerrang. Unfortunately for Dave, he did not win the title of Star Baker.

Watch the whole episode here. Oh, and there were Bowie and Freddie Mercury cakes, too.
