Well it’s that time of year again. September is here, it’s pouring with rain and I’m watching Series 7 of The Great British Bake Off.
Not put off by the scandalous accusations of sexism and gender-stereotyping through use of coloured icing as part of the series launch, this year in a homage to GBBO I’ll be attempting my own spins on the weekly technical challenge.
I suspect some will be closer to the recipes seen on the TV, but where possible I’ll be putting on my own interpretation, just to keep it interesting. As far as possible I’ll also be sticking to the same time constraints that the contestants had, so we’ll see how this all works out.
Of course what I don’t have are the sketchy instructions that Mary and Paul kindly provide, but then again I will be making some of these recipes up so we’ll see how that works out in the weeks to come…
