Butter bashing, nut crunching, stiff peaks and soggy bottoms...The Great British Bake Off is back. Why we love it SO much, we’ll never know. Perhaps it’s the adorably chic backdrop (set in the English countryside, complemented with pleasingly regular April showers), the quintessentially British narrative, laced with cheeky innuendos and Mel and Sue’s annoyingly addictive puns, or the refreshing inclusion of everyone from the endearing middle class mum and homemaker, to the young and energetic engineering student.
We just can’t get enough, and as our very own Hollywood ‘nod of approval’ to the show, we decided to host our very own Bluestep Bake Off.
Each Bluestepper was assigned a week, with three bakers going head to head each week for StarBaker status. All-star bakers will be automatically sent through to the Bake Off finale, where they’ll be tasked with creating a show-stopping masterpiece!
So how have we fared so far?
We’ve had everything from chocolate mousse cakes and feta tartlets, to orange layer cakes and banana cheesecake. As our belt buckles tighten, the final draws closer. Who will be the winner of the Bluestep Bake Off?
