Thank you, dosk.
  • I think it goes:

    Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man,
    Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
    Pat it and roll it and mark it with a B,
    And put it in the oven for baby and me.

    As to why anyone would roll and decorate a cake BEFORE putting it in the oven is anyone's guess! Hmmm...maybe not talking about real cakes?
    • Kit! *glomps*

      I always thought it might be about some kind of pie. Pat it into the disk, prick the bottom and then stick some little pastry leaves on top.

      Alternatively, they could be like hot cross buns and have the decoration added before baking. I <3 hot cross buns, everyone <3 hot cross buns. It's compulsory. If it isn't it should be.
