#GreatLegalBake: Lawyers made a Donald Trump and a Brexit cake
Make baking great again
The Great Legal Bake kicked off this week and lawyers have chosen to keep it topical.
Every year, lawyers — swapping their gowns for a set of oven gloves and an apron — put their cake making skills to the test for a charity bake off.
Last year, we saw a Supreme Court cake, pink bundle ribbon, scales of justice and horsehair wigs, and at first we were disappointed by 2017’s distinct lack of law-themed cakes. And then we saw this masterpiece.

It looks so amazing, we will forgive the inappropriate gavel.
Look at this one too.

In and among the novelty cakes, you can’t deny there’s been some beautiful baking going on too. Look at these glorious cakes from Ipswich law firm Prettys.

And what would a law bake off be without someone in a dodgy fancy dress wig?
