This lion made out of bread was the hero of the Great British Bake Off last night

But he will haunt our dreams.

LAST NIGHT’S GREAT British Bake Off saw the contestants take part in what’s known as ‘bread week’.

And one of the people on it decided to bake up a bread lion.

Yes, a lion made out of bread

It was a phenomenon, obviously

The puns started flowing

As did the comparisons to bread cats

And everything else in the lion world

But people were mostly very impressed

Perhaps it was a self portrait of the baker himself

Throughout the baking process, people were worried

It wasn’t a tribute to Cecil, but we wanted to believe

This bread lion is a new hero.

It was the showstopper

You can just pack up your baking utensils, lion bread beats everything.
