Open Post: The Great Australian Bake Off

Bake off is finally here and it is great to see a reality show where there appears to be no villain on the show.

Well except perhaps for judge Kerry Vincent, but at least she is not shirking the duties she is paid for. When Anna Gare pined “Now we have to decide who is to go”, Kerry responded briskly “That is what we are here for”. New favourite reality TV person.

Kerry and Dan Lepard are a nice balance and will find a lot of new fans.

Thankfully Steve the “healthy baker” was flicked who needs that crap when it comes to baking we had enough of that with the personal trainers on My Kitchen Rules.

Maria showed she was an early favourite by being named star baker. Also some of those cupcakes looked delicious hopefully the recipes will be found online.

What did you think of Bake Off? Who do you think are the favourites to win?

Littlepetal, the cakes always had lots of very neat layers with small amounts of creams between. Then they usually had something tasty and decorative on top. They were creamy, decorative, perfectly constructed and heavenly to eat.

I hate cheesecakes but don’t mind a good banana bread.

I watched the repeat yesterday. Sorry, I found it dull. The contestants and the judges were boring but the cakes made me feel sick. Too heavy, too sweet and too colourFUL.
I noted one contestant looked similar to Jules.
Littlepetal, let us know how you go with the checkerboard. It looks like you’d have to be good at puzzles. You need your own cooking blog.
I will persevere with the bake off. Maybe I will enjoy pies.

Well it’s official – Kerry Vincent sucks lemons! She said so herself.
