When choosing a cake recipe to wow your friends and family, do you pick a new one and simply pour your heart into it, or is it a case of batter the devil you know?

To celebrate the launch of the new, colourful and pun-tastic 'Bake My Day' range, Mason Cash has teamed up with Gransnet to give its lovely members the chance to win one of five complete sets of the Bake My Day range worth up to £130!

To take part, all you need to do is put your thinking cap on and post your baking puns on the thread here.
All entries will be judged by the team at Mason Cash, who will pick their five favourite baking puns.

The winners might feature on future additions to the range, so there if your creative wordsmithery is particularly good, it could end up in kitchens all over the world!

This competition has now closed. Thanks for all your entries. Our winners have now been chosen...please see the bottom of the thread to see who!!

When asked about rumors that he owned a bakery, Shakespeare replied, 'It's much a-dough about muffin.'

Strictly NO double dipping!
You can't throw "That" into the mix!
Go on, Beat it !
Totally refined - flower.
I'm not fat I'm in the pudding club!
Show me the honey.
Completely battered.
I'm waiting for someone to whisk me away from all this.

I must get back to work! (that wasn't one of them)
I hate Mondays. (nor was that) ha ha. smile

Are you doughing my way?

The chef took some cheese and made some grate things

Muffin ventured, muffin gained grin

Anyone who uses too much flour in their recipes is a gluten for punishment.

When it comes to making wonderful gateaux, I really take the cake.

The gingerbread man thought he would get clean away, until he met his baker.

I try to keep my OH out of the kitchen, he makes such a pesto himself.

Italian cooks really know how to espresso themselves.

I ran out of chicken drumsticks the other night, so I winged it. (I really did!)

Do British cannibals eat fish and chaps?

If you are in the pudding club, you must have a bun in the oven.

(Lame, I know, but I'm running out of ideas.)

The halibut sued the police café for a salt and battering after they grilled him.

Lettuce move swiftly on.

Francois Hollandaise taught me all I know, but he's rather an unreliable sauce.

(might get sued for that one!)

janerowena Mon 06-Oct-14 13:49:17

Frankly, I don't give a ham.

janerowena Mon 06-Oct-14 13:55:28

I doughnut understand why there are not more entrees for this bacon competition. I'm not beefing about it, mutton grumble as it means I can go on waffleing mindlessly for eggsactly as long as olive.

janerowena Mon 06-Oct-14 13:59:04

That should, of course, have read 'mutton crumble', not grumble!

Actually - 'Mutton Crumble' isn't too bad, is it?

Don't answer that!

I just use my fingertips to flute my pie crust edges. I find it gives a much neater finish than a fork or a spoon - in fact, I'm a dab hand at it.

Maggiemaybe Mon 06-Oct-14 14:17:40

I'm hopeless at making bread, but I keep on trying. I feel I've got something to prove.

Maggiemaybe Mon 06-Oct-14 14:18:31

My last effort was a bit better - perhaps I'm on a roll.

janerowena Mon 06-Oct-14 14:20:41


I just read mine and groaned!

Ok, one for the kids wink

- The disciples knew Jesus was feeling a little peckish, when he suddenly demanded 'Souffle the little children to come unto me!'.

Or at yeast on the up.

This is getting addictive. I'll get back to facebook.

Olive story - (one that was never consomme-ed.)

(She thought he wanted to mould her, but he just left her stewing.)

'Oh come with me to Genoise', whispered Dariole to Coccotte, 'And I will daube you in (crème) Chantilly and coddle you in (pommes) Lyonnaise.
