    This was decided many years ago when Her Majesty's Customs and Excise took McVitie's to a British VAT tribunal.  Cakes are not taxable, but chocolate-coated biscuits are, and HMCE wanted some tax.  After hearing all the arguments, the learned judge ruled that it's a cake.

    So it's official.  For tax purposes, Jaffa cakes are cakes.

    Jaffa Cakes are biscuit-sized cakes

    It's a delicious structure consisting of sponge, chocolate and orange jelly.

    I believe that it was decided somewhere that it's a cake.

    When a cake goes stale it becomes dry.

    When a biscuit becomes stale it becomes moist and soft.

    Jaffa cakes become dry.
