right, last night, something amazing happened for us brits – the great british bake off started again 😬
if you don’t know what that is … it’s basically a telly program that is more a british treasure than the crown jewels! #queeniewouldagree. as such, today’s fact had to be about cake!
#tdil the actual difference between biscuits and cakes 😏 this might be the most important thing we’ve ever had on this blog 🎂🍪.
it’s an age old debate – what constitutes a biscuit and what constitutes a cake? 🤔 not only has this debate plagued families across the world however … it has caused no end of headache for the taxman 😅
‘but why is that even important to the taxman, he just likes taking money?’ i hear you cry. well, whilst you may think there’s no difference between cakes and biscuits … ec legislation (european commission) says that cakes are zero-rated for vat whilst chocolate covered biscuits aren’t 🙈 #awks.
that, of course, means that they needed to find a discernible difference between the two. the difference that they decided on was that cakes go hard when stale and biscuits go soft 👍🏻.
by ‘they’, i actually mean mcvities 😅 they ended up having to prove to the scary tax people that their jaffa cakes were indeed cakes and not biscuits (basically, they wanted to avoid paying tax 😂).
and there you have it; one of life’s great mysteries answered 🙌🏻 … sometimes i feel like this blog is a public service 😏.
right, until tomorrow 🙂
much love 😍 #tdil
