Baking along with the Great British Bake Off: Week One – CAKES

Hey Cake Chums!

The Great British Bake Off is back and you know what that means… Yup, my #bakealongwithGBBO is back too!

Every single week during series 10 of GBBO, I will be attempting that week’s technical challenge, following the same rules, timings and recipe as the bakers in the tent.

But there’s MORE: new for 2019, not only will I be attempting the challenge – I will also be videoing the entire experience and posting it over on my YouTube channel!

This week, it was Cake Week in the tent, with the bakers facing a fruity signature challenge, creating decorated fruit cakes in only two hours; whipping up a pretty complex technical, three layer angel cake slices; and creating extravagant birthday cakes, inspired by their own childhoods.

I won’t post any spoilers here in case you haven’t yet caught up with this week’s episode, but I definitely enjoyed watching and am looking forward to getting to know this new batch of bakers better over the coming weeks.

When it came to my own experience, taking on their technical challenge, it certainly wasn’t easy – but I’ll let you check it out for yourself in the video below…

  1. I don’t think I’ll be making this!! My dishwasher isn’t big enough for all the dishes. And who only makes 6 servings of cake? Something that small is not worth the mess

    Now if I can successfully triple or quadruple the recipe, then maybe. Just maybe … 🤗🤗
