Mind the cake: 'The Great British Bake Off'-themed tube map

Yesterday we got all excited about a secret TfL tube map that shows the real distance between stations, which was really cool in a practical, useful kind of way. But you know what it was lacking? Cake. But now the folks over at Londonist have created something for all the cake-loving tube geeks out there with a 'Great British Bake Off'-themed tube map.

Using readers' suggestions and their own punny ideas, they've given the the entire Underground network a baking-themed rebrand, so you can now take a trip to Mornington Croissant, Jamden Town or Earl's Torte. Admittedly, some of the puns are a bit half-baked – South Kensington has somehow become 'mouth-cleansing bun', while Bank has just been reduced to 'Bake'. But considering they've managed to rename every single station on the tube, Overground, DLR, TfL Rail and even the bloody Emirates Airline, it's a pretty good effort (said with a Paul Hollywood-style knowing look).

Read our list of nine sneaky tube shortcuts that only Londoners know.

Or take a look at this kids' map that belongs on every London-lover's wall.

And have you seen the fake TfL adverts on the tube?
