Great British Bake Off first timer

I realise I must be something of a rare breed, but I have never watched GBBO before. Yes, I make cakes (a lot of cakes!). Yes, I watch TV (mostly whilst knitting!). But a TV programme based on the premise of competitive baking?!

So why have I decided to give this season a go? The answer is simple! Nadiya! I was vaguely aware that Nadiya was the winner of the last series … and then I heard her speaking on Dessert (sic!) Island Discs and I thought ‘If someone as engaging as this is involved in that show then maybe I am seriously missing out!’

So tonight I will be watching and I will even put my knitting aside. Mel, Sue, Mary and Paul – I am (finally) ready. Let the baking begin!

Here’s 2 I made earlier! So far this week I have already baked a Victoria sponge for my husband’s lunches and a jam swiss roll for my knitting ladies. And yes, I even have the gingham!
