It's all just so lovely. Really please John won.

In tears here tooblush

AlmostAHipster Tue 16-Oct-12 21:03:59

I welled up a bit when it said he was going to Paris to follow his dream of becoming patissier ( or however you spell it ). That was lush!

Are you hormonal or do you just really love baked goods?

CockyPants Tue 16-Oct-12 21:05:14

Me too. And Brendan teaching baking in care homes is a fab idea. Bless him when he couldn't speak, that's when my tears started...

wtf?

CockyPants Tue 16-Oct-12 21:06:10

It's just a great programme. Naice people, cake, Paul Hottiewood, what else do you want?!

noblegiraffe Tue 16-Oct-12 21:07:59

Me too, but I'm pregnant!

John was just so lovely I'm pleased he won, even though I think Brendan probably deserved it more.

I think I may have croaked "they're all such nice people" before gulping down a sob at the bit when we were told about Brendan and the care homes.

John just wanted to make his Mum proud. Lovely child.

James didn't have the thirst for it. He didn't practise at home. It was his to lose I reckon and he lost it.

stinklebell Tue 16-Oct-12 21:14:24

I was rooting for John to win, but no tears here

bigkidsdidit Tue 16-Oct-12 21:14:41

Me too but I'm pg too grin

Brendan came across very well this ep, I was quite sad he didn't win.

CockyPants Tue 16-Oct-12 21:15:17

Waaaahhhh.

FermezLaBouche Tue 16-Oct-12 21:15:46

I am a horrid grouchy cow but I shed some silent tears (after quickly closing the living room curtains). Really pleased for John

over a bit of cake? get a grip. grin

SneezySnatcher Tue 16-Oct-12 21:18:34

Brendan was robbed - fact!

FiveFlowers Tue 16-Oct-12 21:19:58

I kept saying, "It's just cake fgs!" but I had something in my eye too...

EdgarAllanPond Tue 16-Oct-12 21:22:12

i think both brendan and james were robbed.

he just kind of lucked out at the end, didn't he? with James' dropped cake, and Brendan mucking up his fancies.

hormonal vs liking cake? is there a difference?

Hesterton Tue 16-Oct-12 21:26:30

I cried too because:

a) They were all three such decent people
b) Brendon giving way to emotion in such a dignified, restrained, gentle way
c) James feeling like a winner even though his Chiffon was too cakey
e) I am ridiculously menopausal and cry at most things

noblegiraffe Tue 16-Oct-12 21:27:44

If it was just judged on the final cake, James's effort was pretty shoddy, the icing was messy for a start, and can't believe he tried to wing making Turkish delight. Brendan's cake was impressive, but John's was just spectacular. Based on that it wasn't completely unreasonable result.

Overwhelmedmummy Tue 16-Oct-12 21:28:16

Tears here too and no pregnancy hormones to blame it on grin

dementedma Tue 16-Oct-12 21:29:08

It was great. I was choked at Brendan's struggle to contain himself. That, and his reunion cake, told its own story. Was very happy for John though

gallifrey Tue 16-Oct-12 21:29:36

I was sitting wondering why on earth grown men were crying over baking cakes tbh!!

GoldenGreen Tue 16-Oct-12 21:33:21

I was in tears too over John just wanting to please his mum.

Just after it finished ds came down out of his bedroom because he was "too hot" to sleep. I switched off his radiator and got him tucked up again, and feeling all emotional I told him how much I love him, how he could never disappoint me etc etc. At which point he perked up and started flicking me "even if I do that mummy?" "is this annoying mummy?". Rather ruined the moment.
