Pineapple and passionfruit looks stunning

Tomato thing is yuck

NettOlympicSuperstar Tue 14-Aug-12 20:19:50

I'd love to try the tomato one as I don't have a sweet tooth.

SecretNutellaMedallist Tue 14-Aug-12 20:20:03

very brave. oh dear.

I nearly forgot this was on. Have the book already, tried one of them last week and it was a mess (a yummy mess, but not anything like the pic) so waiting to see what I done wrong. .

The pretty elfin brunette reminds me so much of Lexi from Grey's Anatomy.

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 14-Aug-12 20:24:52

I wish they'd share what exactly are the 'basic instructions' the GBBO-ers receive, so that we can try to imagine what we'd do.

Lol at "it's a real fillip"! How posh is she?

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 14-Aug-12 20:26:27

Right. Natasha must be on MN also. Come to us Tash.

Loving it!!

YY HazeltheMcWitch I wish we could see the sheets they're given!
This would generate either sympathy or rampant criticism grin

A bain-marie?
to bake a baba. confused

SecretNutellaMedallist Tue 14-Aug-12 20:29:29

I have a fear of yeast based baking.

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 14-Aug-12 20:29:30

Dr Lady had one of the GBBO books in pride of place there...

Fisharefriendsnotfood Tue 14-Aug-12 20:32:06

The midwife is lovely smile

forcookssake Tue 14-Aug-12 20:32:18

Gosh. This IS a hard first technical challenge confused

SecretNutellaMedallist Tue 14-Aug-12 20:32:31

salt instead of sugar is a pretty critical mistake.

rhetorician Tue 14-Aug-12 20:32:37

lots of camp men, no butch ladies...

SecretNutellaMedallist Tue 14-Aug-12 20:33:36

Pity we can't do a MN bake off.

Could you imagine the chaos?

coffeeinbed Tue 14-Aug-12 20:33:42

He's good.
The sweater guy, soaking them upside own.
Got in late, missed the name!

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 14-Aug-12 20:34:51

Sweater guy = James from Shetland

rhetorician Tue 14-Aug-12 20:35:44

secretnutella surely it is not beyond the powers of MN Towers to organize a simultaneous web-bake? We'd have to think of a way of judging though?

Will miss the well endowed squirrel. smile
