PB062198.JPGCan’t believe the bake off is over again for another year! It’s been another great series and I’ve really enjoyed watching it. I am quite relieved there are no more technical challenges though! I haven’t enjoyed them as much as previous years as some of them have been a bit obscure and required special equipment which has made trying the recipes at home a bit more challenging. I was tempted to get Rich to have a go at this one on the BBQ, but decided against it! I used the grill and a griddle pan instead. Click here to see how I got on with the final challenge.

I was really pleased when I saw what the technical challenge was last week – it’s been ages since I’ve made something like that and I couldn’t wait to try it! The only downside was that it’s pretty big (it’s huge!) and I was on my own for the weekend. Luckily I had a cross-country race and my team mates were more than happy to help me eat it up!

Like all of the bakers, I hadn’t heard of Puits d’Amour either so I was intrigued to try them out this weekend. I also have to admit that I’m not sure I have ever made a creme pat and I think the last time I made choux pastry was when I was at school! So this week was definitely a new challenge!

I think I must be one of the only people who actually liked blancmange when I was little! So this recipe definitely appealed and sounded very yummy. I had a bit of help from Emily with the biscuits, but it was a tricky one for a toddler to do! Click here to see how we got on.

P9140339.JPGI was quite relieved that last weeks challenge looked like something easy enough to make with Emily, as she’s very keen to help out in the kitchen! I probably should have watched the challenge more carefully and read a bit more from other people’s blogs who had already attempted the challenge. The dough was so so sticky!

Finally this years GBBO is underway! It was a great start to the series and I can’t wait for next weeks episode already. This year I am getting a bit of help with my baking from Emily who really enjoyed watching it for the first time on Wednesday morning and couldn’t wait to try and make them. So click  here to see how we got on.
