I’ve been live blogging the GBBO. I’ve finished now and undoubtedly eating cake.
20.58 – Thanks for watching.
20.57 – So there we have it. I’ve just been reminded that I’ve out next Wednesday at the theatre so someone else will have to blog GBBO.
20.56 – Oh gosh. Really? Well I never saw that coming.
20.56 – killing me
20.56 – is
20.55 – suspense
20.53 – Time to decide who is going home. The
20.50 – Remind me to get chocolate for next week.
20.47 – “It screams Black Forest Gateaux”
20.46 – That looks like one of mine.
20.45 – Remind me to get cake in for next week.
20.43 – My leg has gone to sleep. I need to walk around a bit.
20.40 – Isn’t time flying.
20.35 – If anyone is wondering, the competition begins in September each year when everyone in Britain bakes a cake and sends it to Mary. She tries them all and sends the fifty best to Paul who picks his top twelve.
20.32 – Black Forest gateaux. The first Show Stopper. I wonder of we have any chocolate in the house.
20.30 – Half an hour in. I’ve found a stale biscuit in the cupboard. It’s not cake.
20.26 – The technical challenge is over. And breathe.
20.25 – Who invented meringue? I want meringue now.
20.23 – I should have bought cake.
20.21 – I need cake. That Walnut Cake looks amazing. Where can I get cake?
20.20 – To sum up for those just joining, I’m live blogging a TV show about baking cracks with a little old lady and a guy in denim. So far no one has thrown anything at anyone or cried. But it’s only twenty minutes in.
20.17 – Mary is left wanting gin.
20.17 – First fallen crest.
2013 – Much crack discussion now. I’m just checking that I haven’t accidentally switched over to a Channel 4 documentary. Nope, there’s Mary, we’re all OK.
20.12 – This is one of the best bits of GBBO. Lots of camera shots of people looking to to ovens.
20.10 – First oven disaster of the series.
20.08 – Mary’s jacket and lipstick can help you adjust the colour control on your TV. Turn the red down until your eyes stop bleeding.
20.06 – Sue said ‘crack’. Or was it Mel?
20.05 – One of the contestants learnt to cook at school in Luton.
20.04 – Mary said ‘crack’.
20.03 – Paul looks like he’s been working out. Mary looks like she’s been working in the kitchen.
20.02 – First quote – “I can be quite random. I can start making a cake and you can end up with a meat pie by the time I finish”.
20.01 – For those not in the UK who may not know what the GBBO is all about then I can sum it up in just a couple of words. It’s cakes and summer and Brits.
20.00 – I’m waiting for my fist picture of cake.
