Our lovely pals over at Kitchen Bitching know a LOT about cake. So much so that we have commandeered their Editor-in-Chief to be our official Global Afternoon Tea Ambassador! In celebration (and because we simply cant stop talking about gin and cake!) we took to Twitter to chat with our lovely followers about all things brilliantly-baked and gin-tastic. (If you don’t follow us, you totally should – @GandTeaTime)

Whilst we pondered whether viccy sponge is the perfect accompaniment to a classic G and T, or if its a chocolate brownie that makes that gin fizz really hit the spot, we set you gorgeous lot a task – bake us a cake … with gin IN it!

Of course, you guys like nothing more than a challenge, and cor blimey it turns out you’re a talented bunch to boot.

The amazing @VanillaBearCake’s creation was so tremendous Kitchen Bitching has shared it with the world! Check it out and tell your friends – gin o’clock just got earlier!
