If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know that I, like most of the British population, love, love, love the Great British Bake Off and I am very pleased that it’s back on TV.
I’m not quite sure why I like it so much – whether it’s the hilarious quips and puns from Mel & Sue, the scowls and disapproving judgements from Paul Hollywood or the very lovely, grandmother to us all, Mary Berry. The contestants are always great & I spend the first few episodes picking the ones I like, which are usually the ones who can bake well, though I’m always disappointed when the disastrous bakers (which is what I would be if I went on the show) leave, as they’re always great to watch. I’m always amazed at the outcomes from the contestants, as there is no way I could ever make anything as grand, in that space of time and with the pressure they’re under. I would be a cryer!
Last week was a blood bath, literally. So this week I’m hoping for more hilarity in the way of mistakes, dropped bakes & judgements from the Silver Fox. I love how Mary Berry always says something positive, even when something is awful and how she looks when someone is doing something she doesn’t agree with! Great viewing!
Last year, I complained about not having cake to eat while watching it, so this year I’ve decided there will be something yummy to eat each week. Fret not, I’m not baking stuff, but instead supporting local cake making businesses. Tonight, I’ll be enjoying a lovely iced finger (one of my favourite cakes) from a newly opened Parsons in town. How about you? What cake will you be eating while enjoying the show? Will it be shop bought or home made?
