I’ve enjoyed the Great British Bake Off from the moment it came on our screens and am so pleased it is back for another year this week for its fourth series. I shall be sitting with a glass of wine in hand and feeling slightly envious but also very sure I could not put myself through such scrutiny. I love to bake but I am a home baker not a cake decorator, although I have decorated a few in my time, I leave the novelty cake making to those who love it. But this is part of the attraction of the GBB, the variety of baked products they need to produce and in the allotted time!
I would love a masterclass with Mary Berry or Bezza and they affectionately call her on set, Paul Hollywood too but I think I would be a nervous wreck baking for him!
I read in the paper today that budding bakers are stocking up with home-baking kit in anticipation of the return of the Great British Bake Off, everything from flour to baking tins are flying off the shelves!
So, lovers of the Great British Bake Off, see you on the sofa on Tuesday.
