Tonight’s Bake Off was a Tudor-themed affair, with Celtic jumbles, pies and marzipan peacocks galore.
It also saw the sad departure of Benjamina; a talented and likeable baker, with perhaps the laziest thought-up of female names (when in doubt, stick an A on the end of it). As ever, I tweeted along with the show, probably missing half of the action whilst struggling to write something concise about my love for Paul Hollywood.
See below for today’s ramblings; they be about cake.
