{Mama, of Mama's Cakes and Biscuits, is standing on a crate talking to her staff, near an industrial mixer.}
Mama: It's been a tough year in the baking business.
Mama: But you've all worked hard to keep Mama's Cakes and Biscuits in business.
Mama: So as an extra special reward...
Mama: You may lick the bowls and beaters!

{All the staff fist-pump and cheer excitedly.}
staff: Yay!!!

If it were an American company, it would be Mama's Cake and Cookie Co., I suppose. My understanding is that "biscuit" is used in America for what I would call a "scone". None of these things is a type of sandwich. Or is a layer cake a type of sandwich? What about an Oreo?

Regarding the title, I don't know if "bags" is used as a verb to mean "claim" in places other than Australia and Britain. I was tempted to change it to "bag", which to me also means "score", "win" or "receive", but that didn't show up as a definition at dictionary.com; the closest definition was to catch or kill an animal while hunting. Any suggestions for an alternative "b" word that would fit there?
