There should be a better standard of baking. So much bad pastry!

I'm unimpressed.

user1471462290 Wed 19-Oct-16 20:20:55

Me too, absolute rubbish

This whole series has been dire

furlinedsheepskinjacket Wed 19-Oct-16 20:23:21

surely candices ones were burnt - nobody mentioned that ?

MsVestibule Wed 19-Oct-16 20:25:23

The standard of baking in this series is the worst since I started watching it, 3 or 4 series ago. However, I have to leave this thread now, as I'll be watching it on iplayer tomorrow!

I was just thinking that! They're really bad compared to earlier shows.

Careycontrary Wed 19-Oct-16 20:29:35

I was thinking the same. And yes Candices were burnt!

They are pretty poor Bakers compared to those on previous series.

The pastry was rather disappointing. Definitely a step down from previous years.

LineyReborn Wed 19-Oct-16 20:34:40

I'd eat it, though.

Having a few shoddy pastries amongst the good makes for better TV though doesn't it?

If everybody baked everything to perfection every week it could get a bit boring.

I always assume they've selected an assortment of interesting folk who can all cook a bit, rather than 12/10 (how many were there?) exceptional bakers.

They aren't great bakers... they aren't great tv either. Do you think the producers are trying to make it a bit rubbish for a big comeback next year? I haven't really enjoyed this series as much.

YouTheCat Wed 19-Oct-16 20:38:24

I have a real hankering for a rum baba now though.

BrianMolkoismyPlacebo Wed 19-Oct-16 20:40:16

Yeah, I'm not too impressed with the baking this week.
I have enjoyed the series though

Careycontrary Wed 19-Oct-16 20:47:37

I've not enjoyed it as much this year. Not sure why. Definitely not as many ' wow' bakes though.

BitchQueen90 Wed 19-Oct-16 20:49:08

Agree, I don't think any of them really stand out! Got a feeling Candice will win it though.

Selasi is on thin ice...

SealSong Wed 19-Oct-16 20:51:29

I wonder if they are set up to fail, though? They are always rushing, there's clearly not enough time allowed for some things to be actually successful.

justdontevenfuckingstart Wed 19-Oct-16 20:51:47

The standard this series has been crap. I start every week but lose interest quite rapidly.

EdmundCleverClogs Wed 19-Oct-16 20:52:42

I was just saying to my partner, this whole series feels a bit of a damp squib. Not sure if the bakers aren't so good or just subconsciously detaching myself since this is probably the last series I'll watch. Nothing has looked visually appealing tonight...

ijustwannadance Wed 19-Oct-16 20:52:49

Why does candice have to pout constantly!?
Standards have been so low this series.

pieceofpurplesky Wed 19-Oct-16 20:54:45

It's the only series that has bored me. They have favoured candice since day 2.

Helenluvsrob Wed 19-Oct-16 20:57:26

Not at all predictable then 😄

SealSong Wed 19-Oct-16 20:57:54

Ooh I'd love a hug with Selasi blush

justdontevenfuckingstart Wed 19-Oct-16 20:59:19

I think I'm only watching for Selasi to be fair.
