(Velo)Cakes Of The British Isles

I feel that we have really gone properly national what with Grant's racing in Dundee at the weekend, and it's given me a very small idea.  Please refer to the above title.
A Dundee cake recently.

So far I have  Dundee cake, Eccles, Chorley and Bakewell.  Feel free to join in.  Global suggestions are also welcome from the new worlds.

Al said...

I've been stitched up!

Did you write Bakewell and Chorley so i would bite (no pun intended)

As for the Manchester tart, i'm even more ashamed of not getting it, as i have been a Mancunian for a good six months longer than you!!

Hang on aren't you from Trafford?

Just a spit away from the Trafford Rangers ground i thought.

You know the old saying 'fight fire with insults'
