My dalliance with ‘The Great British Bake-off’ and my sunken Cherries


Oh so excited that the GBBO starts again on 5th August – I’m really so excited (yes really) I love it! Lets hope for another Norman 😉 

Anyway after lots of pressure from FB last year I did actually download the Application Form, you should have seen it! It was a serious case of “back to Uni” prep. As usual I left it until the last couple of days  I had to prepare photo’s / experiences / write about best bakes etc etc etc – it was EPIC

Finally the last night before the closing date  (I was ill in bed – feeling really poorly) I managed to finish the application form and hit the “SEND” button. I closed my Mac and tried to sleep. The next few days I felt even worse and was in bed (not something I normally do) Three days later I opened my Mac. DOH – it was still in the outbox as it was too large for the server 🙁 I sent it anyway but missed the very strict cut off time.

Never mind – wasn’t meant to be and to be honest this year the struggle of juggling life and work and trying to enter the blogging world is enough 🙂 (not that I think I’d be chosen anyway)

Next year – I will try again!

BUT every cloud has a silver lining and tonight I am featured under #bakingfails ha ha ha- ironic I guess…..


So will you be watching? I really do hope so – so we can chat on FB and Twitter and on here 🙂

Well done for wading through the application form. Make sure you save it for next year :-) And for the record, smiley cherry cake is my personal favourite xxx
