Ah yes I remember that one.

 

The shows imply that only one task is done each week. Apparently not, they do 2 or 3 tasks a week and only get one day off between each one. Oh and the boardroom is a studio set.

Oh wow......Frances deserved it, I felt she was a bit of a dark horse but her creativity and talent shone through.  She did well.  Ruby's nerves got the better of her.  I think the judges were right about Kimberley's wedding cake - very good flavours, but the outside - the bit people see first - was too plain.  I thought that printing on the middle tier just looked a mess.

Really enjoyed this series.

wave  Yes, I agree with you.  All the way through she has been quiet and unassuming, but so creative and clever.   I have enjoyed it so much and will miss my Tuesday night fix.

 I usually watch it after I come home from choir, but saw it live this week as I am not feeling so good and did not feel like singing.  I honestly think I am just exhausted with everything that has been going on.

wave  Thanks Sue.  Have a busy few weeks coming up.  It never seems to end right now.  I had a lovely time at the wedding at the weekend, but had no chance to rest when I came home.  Guess I am just showing my age.  big_laugh   Bless you too my dear.  big_hug

I'm sad that Frances won- I was convinced it would be between Ruby and Kimberly, but both had a poor section each- Kimberleys pie being to wet and Ruby's cake looking really chiildish. I never really took to Frances as a person, but on the day she was best.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Danuta, please take care of yourself.  Or let Colin do it for you.

Regarding the GBBO, I wasn't that thrilled with it tonight.  TBH Paul gets on my nerves, constantly stalking the participants.  I thought the winner was lacking in personality but that might be because I haven't seen all of the episodes.

What next - Masterchef or the Roux thing?

I'll try that again!
