Teacakes: the new jaffa cakes?

If anybody was in any doubt as to the importance of the ‘is a teacake/jaffa cake a cake of a biscuit discussion’… it’s about £3.5m, according to the European Court of Justice, after UK customs incorrectly classified the teacake as a biscuit and put VAT on it.

Of course, the taxman could have just sorted this out by seeing if a teacake gave a satisfactory dunking experience, which it clearly doesn’t.

Speaking of which, I need another cuppa.

    We were discussing this at work earlier… I feel very passionately about it. How could anyone have ever mistaken a jaffa cake for a biscuit? Biscuits are crunchy. Cakes are not. And I’m extremely bored.
