The sixth series of GBBO is almost upon us and former contestant Claire Goodwin is cock-a-hoop. Here, in the first of a series of articles celebrating the nation’s favourite entertainment show, she remembers last year’s participants with a very special video and a slice of (spectacular) cake.
A new batch of bakers is preparing to enter the GBBO tent. In just a few days’ time, we will see the 12 hopefuls whisk, batter and whip their way through nine weeks of bakes. I cannot believe it has been 12 months since my year’s series started. It seems to have flown by.
In a bid to hang onto the memory that was the Class of 2014, Standard Issue asked me to share some pictures of a cake I made to share with my friends at the final last year. There’s also a catch-up with the contestants to see what they’ve been up to since the series finished. I hope you enjoy watching this little video as much as I enjoyed making the cake!2337 Views
