Chris Hemsworth puts other men to shame: he also bakes

CHRIS Hemsworth made his daughter's birthday cake himself.

The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' actor and wife Elsa Pataky were let down by a local bakery who they had hoped could make a sweet treat to mark India Rose's special day, so he rolled up his sleeves and got stuck in in the kitchen himself.

Sharing a picture of the dinosaur-shaped cake he'd crafted to mark the youngster turning four, Chris wrote on Instagram: "What happens when the bakery says they don't have time to make your daughter a birthday cake? You get involved and smash one out yourself ! I call it "La TRex al la chocolate (sic)"

And it seems the 32-year-old hunk - who also has twin sons Sasha and Tristan, two, with his spouse - is a regular in the kitchen as Elsa recently shared a picture of him and India cooking up some treats after the premiere of his latest movie 'The Huntsman: Winter's War'.

Captioning the image in both Spanish and English, she wrote: Papa making some late snack after premiere @thehunstman #jetlag #bestglamour #yummy #papachef #bestmoments #latrip (sic)"

Chris and 39-year-old Elsa - who married in 2010 - recently sold their Malibu and Santa Monica properties after relocating to the actor's native Australia and he previously admitted he never felt at "home" in Los Angeles.

He explained: "LA, I loved it, it was great being there with the opportunities with work, [but] it didn't feel like home.

"Instantly, when I get off the plane, I'm back. Which is I think is essential to what we want to give [the children]."

Chris and Elsa tied the knot just a few months after they started dating and he revealed he knew straight away that she was the one for him.

He said: "It just made sense to both of us. There was an ease to it neither of us had had before."
