Change Patisserie Plans At Your Peril
We had all sorts of mess, plenty of perfection and ultimately one baker who we thought would excel at patisserie heading home at the penultimate hurdle as we saw our final four made Savarin, Cornucopia and a Cube Cake.

It's Jelly Inside Jelly
The Quarter-Final saw a familiar theme as dessert week returned as five became four in the Great British Bake Off Tent.We saw the bakers creating 12 mini cheesecakes for the signature before being largely unsuccessful in making two sussex ponds for the technical challenge, which were, in the main, ironically pond like, by the time they were being judged. The showstopper was the undoubted highlight which saw some incredible bakes, utilising jelly in such beautiful ways, several of which were worthy of a final never mind a quarter-final. Josh, Jane, Howard and Ian Cumming recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom. We'd like your questions and comments to keep us going.

Peter Is Studying Ancient History
The 7th week of Bake Off 2020 left Howard feeling a little uncertain as to quite how '1980s' it was really was, but after making a quiche, some finger doughnuts and an ice cream cake, we can't deny we were in need of eating something sweet as we watched Hermine become the seventh different star baker in as many weeks.We saw Laura forget to turn on a button which almost saw her bid farewell to the tent, but in the end it was Lottie's cassette tape that wasn't functioning properly as the star baker from just a week ago was given her marching orders, leaving us with five bakers for our quarter-final. Josh, Jane, Howard and Dan Beasley Harling recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom. We'd like your questions and comments to keep us going.

Game Set Macha
The newly themed Japanese Week started off with a challenge to make eight soft delicious steamed buns... and considering they were asked to make buns, there weren't enough bun related jokes really. Prue wanted them to melt in the mouth whilst Paul was more concerned that they were exactly to his taste as he mistakenly took the tent for a restaurant. Then it was a case of turning to a Macha crepe cake for the technical challenge, where Paul warned us that the layers had to be very thin to ensure enough mixture to get 11 layers... and guess what, not everyone got enough layers whilst Dave got confused between a crescent and a circle for his decoration. Meanwhile, Laura claimed she may as well eat grass, such was her disdain for macha.For the showstopper, the bakers were told to make a Kawaii cake (we also had to google it). They were told to make it cute and by and large they did. Well Hermine didn't necessarily, but there you go. She survived, whilst poor old Mark made a cake so dry Paul almost called it unedible, but by telling us it was nearly unedible, he basically told us it was really and then Mark was sent packing, whilst Lottie became the sixth different contestant to be star baker in six weeks.Josh, Jane and Howard recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom.

Twenty crimps on your pasty
Pastry Week started off with a challenge to make Cornish Pasties, which put the pressure on poor Marc, because he lives in Cornwall, so therefore apparently his was expected to be much better than everyone else's! Paul even asked how many crimps they should have, but then wasn't quite sure himself! The technical challenge saw them tasked with making an eclair and for all we know Linda is still working up her 864th batch of choux pastry. Finally the showstopper saw the bakers make a caged tart before Paul and Prue handed over a 5th different star baker of the series whilst we were left with only seven bakers in the tent. Josh, Jane and Howard were joined by the brilliant Dan Beasley Harling once more - as we recorded this podcast remotely via Zoom.

The Lighthouse Lives On
Biscuit Week! Fancy Florentines, Mouthwatering Macaroons and a beautiful 3D biscuit table setting to represent a memorable meal the bakers had in the past, were the name of the game this week, as the 11 members of the Bake Off biosphere battled out to make it through to Week 3. After the fallen upside down pineapple cakes trauma, Dave excelled with a wonderful week that looks set to make him a contender to go the distance, whilst there was definitely a tough decision to be had as to who would head home.

2020 is saved ladies and gentlemen! The greatest TV show to ever grace our proud nation here in the UK, is back on our screens for an 11th series and despite the challenges, didn't they do a marvellous job! We've got 12 brand new bakers to get to know and even a new presenter in Matt Lucas who got off to a flyer looking like he'd been there for years.The traditional opening week of Cake didn't disappoint, there seems to be some tremendous talent on show and well, some less so judging from the opening week, but nevertheless we could have watched them make a cupcake and we'd have been happy, so glad are we that the show is back.Josh, Jane and Howard recorded this podcast remotely and they'd like your questions and comments as always to keep us going in the new series.
