The Test Match Special team received a cake from the Duchess of Cornwall during the World Cup final.

It is a long-standing tradition for fans to send baked treats to be enjoyed by commentators during their radio coverage of international cricket on the popular BBC show.

The intricate creation, crafted in a lemon and elderflower sponge, was brought to life by cake maker Julie Brownlee – but the Duchess was closely involved with the design.

“As anybody who listens to TMS will know, we eat an awful lot of baked goods in the commentary box – and this cake is an extra special treat to mark the final of the Cricket World Cup between England and New Zealand.”

In 2001, the team received a fruit cake from the Queen which was said to have been baked under her close supervision.
