Week Six – Tiramisu ‘bomb’ cake

Week 6 in the tent and it brought with it dessert week. Usually you can guess the sort of desserts that will be baked but not this week, or any other week currently you see they are trying to be different but it’s becoming annoying. Maybe that’s just me though… Anyway, we had a layered…

Week Five: 1920s Week

Week five in the tent and it was another new week with 1920s week. From a fancy custard tart, to an unknown technical and a cake which tastes like a cocktail, it’s safe to say that it was an eventful time in the tent as two people sadly left the tent. In my opinion it…

Week Four. Cake featuring ‘cultured milk’

Ok so week four in the tent was a week of many highs and many lows. This means only one thing, a new week in the tent. Dairy week. I was a bit confused when I heard the announcement on week three to be honest but watching the challenges unfold just told me like normal…

Week Three: Chelsea Buns

Week three in the tent and it’s the dreaded bread week. This week the bakers have to make a tear and share bread, a technical burger and burger bun challenge and a showstopper loaf (or two or three) featuring some complex designs used by cutting the skin of the loafs. Safe to say there were…

Week Two: Fig Rolls

Week two, brought us biscuit week. From chocolate bars, fig rolls and a biscuit sculpture showstopper it was an epic week. Have to say I am so so so impressed with the creativity this year. Not sure if it’s me but it seems like they have upped their game from last year and I’m enjoying…

Week One: Fruit Cake

I actually can’t believe that we are at that time of year when bake off is back. Don’t get me wrong, I love this time of year as it means I spend more time in the kitchen baking along with the show but still how fast is this year going? Anyway, week one in the…

October Bakes

Its been another busy month of baking thanks to the Great British Bake off and I hope that it won’t stop just because the show has ended. Fingers crossed. Looking at the pictures, it was a very beige looking month with a lot of pastry…not like me really – silly bake off challenge! Puits D’Amour…

Week Ten – The Final – Doughnuts

It’s officially over! Ten weeks have passed, the winner has been announced and my bake along challenge has officially ended. Which is the only thing really I’m sad about. It’s been nice to bake along with the show and make something new each week but as you know I was a bit disappointed in the…

Week Nine – Chocolate Eclairs

Patisserie week. Basically a week for gentle and precise baking aka not my week. Honestly watching the bake off this week I really did question why I was baking along with the show. I don’t know why but it made me slightly mad that they were impossible tasks. I mean not impossible, but for a…

Week Eight – Bryony’s Nana Pats Kagekone

Danish week. Basically a great week if your eating the bakes, but not if your baking them. Pastry making for me is not enjoyable it takes forever and I always always seem to burn the end result. I mean what’s that all about?! The challenge. As you can probably tell I’m not a fan of…

Week Seven – Vegan Cake

I have to say that this week I didn’t swoon at the TV and watch every moment of the show fully. If anything it bored me and that says a lot when a cake fell over!! I don’t know why but it’s just not got the same feeling for me like last year. That said,…

September Bakes

September has been a busy month for baking thanks to the return of the Great British Bake Off! Whilst I am not overly convinced about this year’s show in all, I do enjoy watching and baking along weekly and the fact that I am baking more. So what have I made. As it’s bake off…
