Tricky brainteaser challenges puzzlers to spot the Devon-style scone with the cream before the jam

It is one of the fiercest culinary debates to be had in the West Country: jam or cream first on a scone? And now a tricky brainteaser is celebrating the variation.  

The colourful graphic, created by UK-based Leisure Cookers, shows mounds of Cornish scones, which are traditionally slathered with jam first.

But it tasks the nation to find the one Devonshire version - which is prepared the opposite way, with cream then jam - hidden amongst the treats.

The puzzle creators claim that on average it takes 40 seconds for participants to find the scone - so how long will it take you?
