VIDEO: Fernando Torres makes cupcakes in toe-curling advert

Fernando Torres has spent most of the season covering his face with his hands in anguish after missing chances galore for under-achieving Chelsea.

But now, finally, he's cracked it. Well, he's cracked and whisked a couple of eggs anyway.

In a new advert for househould appliances, for reasons known only to Samsung's artistic director, the Spain striker whips up some very daintily decorated cupcakes.

We're particularly fond of the vignette in which he sits next to the fridge with a pinnie on, whistling patiently while his precious cakes cook in the oven.
