Delia Smith baked the "Let It Bleed" cake! She is now a "cooking guru" and has her own TV show in England.
From Sean Egan's book on the making of Let it Bleed:
In a scarcely twist of fate, the sponge layer of the cake on the cover of this utterly decadent album was baked by Delia Smith.
Smith is now a household name - at least to British audiences - as a TV chef and author (one of her cookery books was one of the fastest-selling tomes in history) and is the epitome of clean-cut. At the time she was less well known, working for a food photographer, but had started her own column in the compact Daily Mirror.
"One day they said they wanted a cake for a Rolling Stones record cover", she said later. "it was another job at the time. They wanted it to be very over the top and as gaudy as I could make it."
Chkiantz recalls, "She was shacking up with a bloke who was staying at a friend of mine's apartment. Neither of them had a clue how to cook and it was this friend of mine who told them how to cook a sponge cake. She was too busy to do anything very much else."
It's not known how much of Brownjohn's £1000 budget was spent on Smith's cake.

Bleeding is a common term in record mixing, when you can hear, say the drums on the vocal take or on any other take. To avoid that, people began recording in booths, which is, not that much of a social experience, to say the least.
So I can imagine any of the Stones, well rather of the Glimmer Twins, saying to the engineer, after being asked to do yet another take because of this phenomenon:
"Aah f#@% man! Let it bleed!"
And there you have your album title.
