YES. Looking forward to this, got quite into it last year half way through, getting into it this year from the start.
because you enjoy it and are also a bellend
about this complaining about waste of the licence fee etc
it's probably the one guy that does both accounts
It makes me so angry
but one out of two isn't bad so you still might enjoy it
Started a bake off at work to celebrate. Yeah, i'm that person.
Everyone on it annoys me. Mel and Sue's anchoring is like nails on a chalkboard. Paul Hollywood's a smug cunt. Even Berry's dodderyness is grating.
Wonder who the new Ruby's going to be though. The producers will be gagging for one.
Dig up last year's thread - I was one of the very, very few people pointing out how awful the slagging Ruby was getting was (on here and elsewhere).
I always need to have a slice of cake ready though.
I'm making banana bread. Putting on some slippers, nice pot of tea.
This is event television.
I suppose it is in the latter stages where they've weeded out all the dead wood (mixed metaphor there, sure) but for the first month it's just incompetent people crumbling under pressure. The cakes aren't rising! They've put salt in instead of sugar! The oven hasn't pre-heated and there's only 3 minutes to go to bake 6 tiers of sponge! Chaos.
"I've never actually tried this before" Jeeeez, heart in the mouth stuff!
Every time he says something mean I half expect the recipient of his scowling face to be all "yeah, but at least I'm not a philanderer!"
Mary: "It really is very good, there's something in there I just can't put my finger on"
Contestant: "That'll be the MDMA Mary"
But I enjoy looking at food so I might watch it
Especially if they do savoury stuff
so they did
should I get one of these? I mean, the answer is yes, of course, but which one?
any of these, except the fleur de lis one. might get them all tbh
she also does custom ones with whatever you want for £80. pretty tempted by that, but have no design
Who's this drippy dweeb 'Jordan from Nottingham'?......
had been wondering if maybe I'd over hyped it a bit in this thread. How's Martha so good at baking?
out of the parental home and has nothng esle to do.
there's a builder character and he always has to have a pencil behind his ear, and if he forgets it he'll be reminded by the producers, "Er, hey, builder guy.....pencil?"
..because he brought in a pre-made ingredient for his rocket.
Umm......just me then.
i remarked (out loud) WHAT A SCOWL!?!?!?!
You can't turn up with pre made ingredients. What a rookie :(
to appreciate THE BEARD please. (think he's called Iain)
This is a good time to appreciate the beard as he'll be gone next week.
Are better than the strong contenders last year. A lot of last year's stuff wouldn't have got "Commended" in the local flower show. Bob The Builder is the clear favourite I would say. Scottish bloke reminds me of my Dad - he'll be out soon (him or Beard).
Due to her endless boring competence, and dazzling array of gadgets knocked up by her husband.
Bob the builder will at some point inexplicably put a shedload of chilli and vodka into a cupcake and get the heave ho.
it will go very very wrong.
Hollywood will get all blue eyed about Bob being a builder/baking against all odds/being stigmatised by the trade if he cocks up a cupcake.
do not like
then i felt guilty for it, especially because everything seems to go wrong for him.
Norman's 'farthing biscuits' were a left-hook to the other contestants.
"'Fuck yer rosemary, parmesan an' chili peppers. aw ye need tae floor, salt an' a bit ay lard."
feel a bit disappointed at the lack of opportunities to be cynical about yesterday's programme? On account of the fact that loads of those 3D biscuit things were actually really great.
"lack of creativity" comments will start to come his way.
Out next week when he produced a Medium Sliced Plain White Loaf.
"Ye can fuck yer Spelt Granary with Toasted Cranberries!"
