11 GBBO Moments That Made Episode 1 A Roller Coaster Of Emotion

Oh Dorret


1. Random Sandy was all of us. Well, by all of us, I mean Rachel Green from Friends cooking a trifle. "I'm quite random. I can be making a cake and you can have a meat pie by the time I'm finished."

2. Everyone was all about the crack. Especially Ugne, she was ALL about the crack. Seriously, choosing cakes that involved nuts and crack was surely not a coincidence. Those filthy GBBO producers.


3. Alvin likes his chunks chunky. Fact. And we like Alvin.

4. #AgaProbs. God yeah... Isn't it annoying when you don't know how to use an oven because you're used to baking with an Aga. FFS. (Sorry, I've never had an Aga and as a result have a deep envy of those who do.)

5. That moment when we were really worried about Ugne's decorations. When someone says they had a really good idea for decorating their cake and it involves them dipping a phallic balloon in chocolate, you can't help but worry a bit.


6. The Showstopper cakes were INSANE. You know how the judges on reality shows always say 'the competition is tougher than ever this year'? Well this year, it actually is. Compared to the usual calibre of Week 1 cakes, this year's contestants appear to have spent a year at some sort of intensive Parisian baking school.

7. Apart from Dorret's, which was a total disaster. Nothing on GBBO has ever been as deeply traumatic as watching one woman's dreams literally fall through her hands. Don't cry Dorret. Please don't cry.

8. And yet somehow her mushy, melted, moussey mess still looked delicious. Even if Paul did say "It's like chewing on a rubber tyre." YUM. Couldn't you be nice just this once Paul? Just one time Paul. Goddammit Paul.

9. We're all a bit in love with Tamal. And then we loved him even more when we discovered his Twitter.

10. Our new TV mum Marie did a really good impression of a fish when she won Star Baker. If we had the time or ability to add bubbles coming of her mouth, we would.

11. But poor Stu and his hat were eliminated. Even though Dorret's cake looked like a mudslide. Sucks to be Stu.
