Hi fiends, how’s it going?
The Paralympics kicked off this week and I’m loving cheering everyone on. Have you been watching? I’ve also been very excited every Wednesday evening because The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens.
I really love watching the show, like most people across the country! Last year’s final had an average of 13.4 million viewers and was the most watched show of 2015. Did you know that every morning the crew bake a Victoria sponge in each oven to check they are all working? That is A LOT of cake!
They also all have to buy their own ingredients, but if someone forgets an ingredient on the morning of filming, they have a runner standing by at a local supermarket ready to save the day.
I love watching the technical hallenges because they make really interesting things, like last week when they made dampfnudel and things didn’t go too well for most people. Actually the rest of you really enjoyed that too because it was trending on twitter.
Last years winner, Nadia, even got to make a birthday cake for the Queen! That is really cool. It looked pretty tasty too…
For the first time ever this week, the theme of the show is BATTER! This is something I’m very excited about because I love to bake and cook with batter…
… although its a bit of a pain when it comes to washing up. Thats why it would be good to be on Bake Off because they never have to wash up, the crew do that for them! Although saying that, Mum normally cleans up after me hehe.
Remember (how could you forget!?) to watch the first ever Batter Week Bake Off on Wednesday evening at 8pm on BBC1.
Until next time fiends,
