Northampton winger George North went from wing wizard to brilliant baker in the space of a few hours at the weekend.

The Welsh giant produced an eye-catching display against Gloucester on Saturday afternoon but did not dwell on his defence-shredding showing - he had a date with an apron.

The nimble-footed winger proved he is also a dab hand with his hands by knocking up a Hello Kitty-style birthday cake for his 5-year-old niece Eleri - and he was so proud of his efforts he shared a picture of the cake with his Twitter followers.

Perhaps he could stock Chris Robshaw's new coffee shop? Or maybe the next stop is the Great British Bake Off? Or maybe a showdown with all the boys from Harlequins.
