Episode nine of The Only Way is Essex saw the gang apron up for a baking competition.
Prepping for the Essex Royal Wedding Garden Party, the boys took the time to attend a baking class, while the likes of Diags (James Bennewith) and Chloe Sims simply popped to the shop to buy a cake.
Question is; whose muffin rose to the occasion?

Baking With Banter
Naturally, the cooking scene opened with a couple crude comments from Jon Clark.
Jon has a knack for turning everything and anything into a grossly sexual story.
And if this doesn’t make your skin crawl…
#towie I wouldn’t like to eat the cake that John makes after he’s been rubbing the whisk over his mouth whilst talking to his mates. Very unhygienic!

The cooking class continued with Bobby Norris placing his cake in the oven, only to realise it was a microwave.
Only in Essex…
Bobby whacking his cake in the oven only to be told it’s a microwave…🙈😆😂😂 #TOWIE

Mallet’s Judging Hammer
Tommy Mallet was the first one to rock up to the Garden Party, slamming his judgement hammer on who had baked their cakes and who had bought theirs.
He also used the term “dedge” – anyone knows what that means?
Chloe Meadows brought a gluten-free cake – obviously – although the gang weren’t particularly impressed with the sloppiness of her presentation.
And we’re talking about the cake here…

Crowning the Winner
Following the ‘Essex Boat Race’ and ‘Booty Ball’, the cake baking competition was the next big event in the TOWIE diary.
Bowling over some fierce competition, the champion was Yaz Oukhellou.
#TOWIE oh well yaz didnt win best bum but at least she won best cake 😅

Great news for Yaz, although we didn’t even get a glimpse of what her cake looked like – if it existed.
Did Yasmin have to win the cake comp cause of the tantrum over losing best bum #Towie
