Yes - me smile

Wilding Tue 29-Mar-16 19:46:29

Ooh what's that? Sounds right up my street!

TheSpottedZebra Tue 29-Mar-16 19:46:49

Me too!

dylsmimi Tue 29-Mar-16 19:49:21

Me! Though I heard (possibly the chef from it - the dc were chatting) that it isn't really like the bake off but it looks like some amazing cakes so I am in!

some info

Wilding Tue 29-Mar-16 20:00:43

Ooh yes, will definitely give that a go! <excited>

Tom (who I'm not sure I like) has said he's not tasting. But he's there as the presenter, not a judge. So as to not put the weight back on.

So he won't be the new Greg Wallace ie terrifying tasting faces, alas.

I'm in! Hi all smile

I do prefer amateurs I admit but looking in to see what it's all about...

Roussette Tue 29-Mar-16 20:06:04

Are they in teams? It isn't individual then....

LemonRedwood Tue 29-Mar-16 20:07:49

I'm in grin

Have massive respect for Tom Kerridge since he did a puff pastry "pizza" and smothered it in bovril!

I'm watching but my battery is nearly flat so might have to catch up with the thread later.

Roussette Tue 29-Mar-16 20:09:40

So Graham with the stuck up hair is a dead ringer for Dustin Hoffman...

LemonRedwood Tue 29-Mar-16 20:09:46

Ooh, the Grove, that's near me. Didn't realise it was 5 star and didn't particularly rate their afternoon tea when we last went confused
Couple of years ago now though

Cocolepew Tue 29-Mar-16 20:11:13

I want to test M&S cakes envy

Roussette Tue 29-Mar-16 20:11:15

God I'd love that choux pastry thing.... love love love eclairs and profteroles

TheSpottedZebra Tue 29-Mar-16 20:13:43

I'm a bit bored already - it's just sugary showing-off, isn't it? I prefer 'normal cake' I think.

And Tom sounds v disengaged, like he's reading a phone book or a list of computer componentry.

Roussette Tue 29-Mar-16 20:14:29

Yes, it's not like GBBO... this is all about poncey stuff and big egos

Roussette Tue 29-Mar-16 20:16:31

I like TomK too but he is a bit robotic and not exactly a natural

RozTheSchnoz Tue 29-Mar-16 20:17:17

Just checking in... Had high hopes for it but no sure about this team concept...

RozTheSchnoz Tue 29-Mar-16 20:18:27

I missed the very start dealing with DS2... How have they formulated the teams?

WhoKnowsWhereTheChocolateGoes Tue 29-Mar-16 20:19:22

Did anyone see that documentary about the French pattisieres (sp?) competing for the Kings of Pastry a few years ago? Made this lot look like complete amateurs.

Snoopadoop Tue 29-Mar-16 20:19:36

I'm with you. The team element is a bit annoying, I don't think it works.

Cocolepew Tue 29-Mar-16 20:19:51

The 3 people in the teams work together Roz
