A tool originally used to whip up warm, thick sticky batter.
The batter would then be spread all over the warm cake.
A Haymaker is essential in making the cakes pulsate and drip hot, juicy golden syrup. The Haymaker makes them soft... moist... and rich.
The Haymaker was originally 12 foot long, but it was found that this destroyed the cakes, and there was much complaining from the womenfolk about the length and girth... It is now a foot long baking tool, still able to dig deep into the center of the cake... to hit that Golden spot.
