My lemon drizzle cake was unplaced in the Men Only category of Otley Show again this year

There were 21 entrants, Ill never get to the top, there must be a glass ceiling

Im considering walking away from baking altogether

My mate's Yorkshire Curd Tart was again unplaced as well (although his pastry was carp)

We should get together and break away

I won first place in the Whitcombe and Bentham flower show in 1988 for my butterfly cakes. I think I annoyed the other entrants when they found out I was a 10 year old child and not a member of the WI. My mother trained as a baker and taught me from a young age.

I don't think I expected anyone on this forum to ever say this.

Baking is cool now. I'm just way ahead of the curve. B)

But I bet you'd have put money on it being a Union fan :D

Using that bain-marie was a big mistake, what was she thinking.

There doesn't seem much interest raised on here for TGBBO. This thread kneads more replies, otherwise it will be scone.

And the winner is.... John, the Wigganer!

Glad it wasn't Brendan, there was just something about him - slightly smug IMO.

Brendan is a very good baker but boy is he smug and patronising. Felt sorry for James as he had been the standout baker throughout the series but his lack of pragmatism let him down.

First series I've watched of this show and it is what the BBC do best. No fake build up of tension, no fancy editing just put on a competition and film it. Mel and Sue are fine hosts.

Brian Sewell's two penn'orth - worth a read.

They'll have had a good ratings boost, with the Poland/England match being called off, too.

Ironic as John did a 'Leeds', he was nowhere near and constantly bumbled through with mediocrity, until his final doodah cake. It was the same with Jo last series, a bit sh*t and then did a few good bakes.

Brendan was my (later) choice when my original pick bummed out, but Mary said something very telling, Brendan excelled on things he could practice and fell a bit short on the Technicals, which is a fair point. He was still the better of the last 5 or 6, nevermind 3.

If only to remind yourself what utter pomposity he has, it's like reading Thinking Aloud in RLW; write not much substance but change every other word with the synonym function to sound a bit clevererer, sorry cerebral. Edited by hindle xiii

Sorry no, I tried I really did. Can you summarise what he is actually trying to say.

To nutshell the whole thing, he finds it refreshing to see a reality TV show contested by people with talent and personality, and judged by people who aren't showboating for the camera. And he doesn't even like cakes much.
