GBBO episode 3: The fantastic, the terrible and the ugly

By Izzy Brimeau

Past evening at 8pm I, along with bulk of the nation it would seem, sat down (with a plate of Hobnobs) and tuned in for Terrific British Bake Off’s a lot expected bread 7 days. I like carbs, particularly bread, whether it is heat and refreshing with salted butter, toasted with jam, or crusty and dipped into soup.

No matter if you’re bready or not, the episode and began and the bakers had been on a roll – each a person striving to demonstrate themselves. But had been they ready to rise to the problem? Uncover out whose bakes had been loafly and whose sunk beneath the pressure with my roundup of the fantastic, terrible and ugly moments from GBBO episode 3…

The fantastic
The joy on Stacey’s facial area when she was awarded 1st location in the technical problem. I could consider or go away her close-up fingering of the cottage loaf, though.

The identify of Yan’s bread sculpture ‘Basil the Vegetarian Dragon with his Pumpkin Hoard’ and Noel Fielding’s comment about no a person beating it except they make a gluten-intolerant unicorn *splutters Hobnobs everywhere in laughter*.

How fantastic had been the chest plate and sun shades for James’s owl bread?


But it was Steven’s bread handbag that really stole the show… And evidently Paul’s coronary heart.


The terrible
Many thanks to the Cosmopolitan article that’s been circulating the world wide web, I now cannot un-see that lacking raspberry from the cake in the opening credits.


When the good fall, they fall difficult and Steven’s tea cakes had been as flat as a pancake.

Julia’s questionably shaped snail experienced a lot of people today snickering… Luckily the judges liked the flavour so it did not stop her winning star baker.


The 1st two troubles had been a tiny, for absence of a much better phrase, monotonous. Thankfully the showstopper experienced my heartbeat beginning to rise.

The ugly
Noel Fielding’s creepy shirt with the flesh-colored smily faces gave me the heebie-jeebies.


Kate’s lop-sided, fallen disaster of a cottage loaf. Oh babes, 10th location has never looked so terrible.


Flo’s Davy Jones’ Locker bread sculpture looked like it must have been still left in the deepest, darkest sea for no a person to see. Additionally, the paprika may well have burnt a gap in Prue’s oesophagus.


And the true tear-jerker: Flo leaving *sobs into teacup*.

Upcoming 7 days is caramel 7 days and I’m by now salivating in anticipation…
