Saturday 3-move checkmate puzzle - Can you solve it?

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Your Saturday chess puzzle with a slice of cake. Yes, White's got a huge material advantage but there's always the scare of stalemate in such situations. How about White to play and checkmate in 3. Only 3 yes. Enjoy.

    Please please you make me sob. Why checkmate in three let me do it the old fashioned way with Bishop and Queen somewhere on g7 or b7
