The theme for this week’s Great British Bake Off was caramel; a topic that would have made that female rabbit from the old Cadbury’s Caramel adverts sit up and take note (if she wasn’t a fictional character).
As ever, there were some splendid creations to behold (particularly from Liam and Yan) and yet again, Paul Hollywood was in an unnervingly upbeat mood; the blue-eyed glare of yesteryear has become a distant sexy-Scouse memory.
Once again, I found myself tweeting along with the show; see below for all of them collated; WHY DO I DO THIS?
8:04PM: "The first time I went to my favourite caramel shop I was five..."
8:04PM: I'll cut YOU into portions.
8:06PM: Is Jaffa a trademark? Someone find out...
8:08PM: I'm marking this week's caramel week by pouring molten sugar onto my groin. Weird?
8:12PM: "This time next year, we'll be millionaire's (shortbread)."
8:22PM: Sophie's biscuits: because it's always nice to see electrical tape on primetime television.
8:26PM: In my house (and amongst my friends) these are known as stroppy-waffles. FACT.
8:35PM: YOU SHOULD BE PUTTING THESE STROOPWAFFELS ON TOP OF A CUP OF TEA, FOR GOD'S SAKE.
8:45PM: I was attached to a spiced caramel drip once; it wasn't good for the heart.
8:48PM: Where I store my caramel.
8:49PM: Paul Hollywood's hair is made from frosted spun sugar.
8:56PM: I'd just stick a scouring pad on top of my cake, in place of spun sugar.
9:02PM: Prue's jewellery was the product of a fight with an abacus.
