The Clock Tower, in Connaught Gardens, in Peak Hill Road, has specially designed the cake for those who are being driven bonkers by politics.

The cake is being sold next to a sign that says 'Brexit Cake, based on the European recipe, combination of numerous fruit cakes, topped off with random balls, glutenless, clueless and hopeless, only available until October 31, unless extension requested. Nuts? Absolutely, we're taking the pistachios.'

Gill McThee, manager at The Clock Tower, said it was the idea of pastry chef Stewert Fraser, who owns the business with his wife Justine.

Gill said: "It is so topical. It is basically to lighten the mood and put a little humour into it, creating a talking point.
