There is absolutely nothing malicious in any facet of Bake Off. The contestants all seem to get along swimmingly, warmly congratulating each other on successes and commiserating with evictees rather than bounding off stage toward the next round, fists pumping.
Working in the industry, it's great to see so many people embracing the ever growing popularity of cake making. I come from a background of bakers and was inspired by my family to make food of the highest quality, which is how I became a pâtissier and chocolatier.
As expected from the title this is not a ground-breaking selection of recipes - these are family styled dishes mostly, with a few exceptions. Quite a lot of the recipes are too simple to really need instruction.
