Are you fan of The Great British Bake Off (BBC Two, Tuesdays 9pm)?
I really enjoyed watching it last summer and ensured that the time spent watching became some 'me' time for relaxing in the busy few weeks leading up to my wedding in mid-September.
I had recorded Tuesday's episode (the first in the new series) and sat down yesterday afternoon with a cuppa to get lost for an hour in a world of batters, mixtures and fluffy icing.
I could be heard making 'oooh' and 'aaah' noises in amazement, but also at times was thinking 'I could do better than that'.
If you watched it, do you think there is already a frontrunner to win this series?
I'm already liking Holly Bell very much and think she could be both creative with design and bake with great skill. I loved her cow celebration cake and there was something very deja vu about watching her weigh each cupcake case to check that they were all the same weight. If I was in the competition, I would definitely be doing the same.

So I'm going to champion Holly to win this series. You can find her Cherry Bakewell Cupcake recipe here and a link to her lovely blog here.
Good Luck Holly!
