Post 1633. Thursday November 9
For the uninitiated, The Great British Bake Off is a baking competition and one of the most viewed programmes on UK television!
On day one I baked a fruit cake which tasted horrid, but the judge thought it was fantastic, so that was OK.
On day two I baked a pie but I couldn’t find twenty-four blackbirds so I made do with a dead pigeon that I found by the roadside.
Day three I made scones like cannonballs, day four I knocked up a loaf of bread that needed a chainsaw to cut it and on day five I made half a dozen buns thinking it was day six.
Day six I tried making meringues, and I did that thing where you check if its thick enough by holding the mixing bowl upside-down over your head, but I ended up looking like a human snowman.
On day seven I had a day off and on day eight I made my showstopper, a cake that should have looked like a bunch of roses but ended up more like a pile of doggy-doo.
On day eight I was declared the winner, which was unsurprising since I was the only contestant and also the judging panel, but I’m really proud of my achievement.
The cue at Six Sentence Stories is Baked.
