SAS and special forces settled ‘who is toughest’ with a baking competition

Special forces went head to head in a battle to find out who is the toughest – and settled it with a baking competition.

The rivalry between the SAS and SBS hit new heights while they were training in the Welsh countryside.

But commanders of both elite regiments were left scratching their heads after they tied neck and neck in every test.

So they took inspiration from The Great British Bake Off to help them decide which outfit was the best.

The SAS won with a Women’s Institute favourite – a Victoria sponge with jam and cream.

One insider said: “Everyone knows these guys are insanely tough, but for years there’s been a rivalry about who is tougher.

“Commanders of both forces decided they would give teams points for how they competed during
various skills tests.

“They battled it out with rounds like physical fitness, sniping, close-quarters combat and hostage rescue techniques.

But they declared a draw after five days and decided that three members of each force would each bake a Victoria sponge in a competition.

“The cakes would then undergo a blind tasting by the commanders to decide which was the best.

“The deal was that the losers would have to buy the winners drinks in the mess.”

But our insider said their kitchen skills needed a lot of work as only three cakes were edible.

The source added: “All of them had soggy bottoms and one sponge was so undercooked it was almost raw.”

One of those present said: “The roar was deafening when the decision was announced – the faces of the SBS blokes dropped.

“It was meant to be for fun but everything is a competition between the SAS and the SBS.”
