"What's the biggest animal you've castrated?"

Oh Noel, you really haven't got the hang of innuendo have you?
She really wanted to castrate Noel. Although he's not as big as a big bull.

Meanwhile, every week David seems to deliberately make something wrong or nonstandard. Is he trying to get kicked off?

I liked David saying "I'm not really into tarts" and "I'm a rough puff kind of guy". That's how it's done, Noel.

"Oooh, you can feel it going in"

"I'm not sure if it's going in or not"

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID

"It needs to be smooth and thick because it's going in my..." *recognizes innuendo* "...sheath."

Also a return to form.

That was uncomfortable viewing. Like one of those nightmares you have when something important is coming up and everything that can go wrong does go wrong.

They need to assess the bakers for psychological wellbeing before the show, it was indeed painful watching. It was clear Steph has been through a lot of life stuff, and Alice basically disintegrated under pressures both baking-related and external (glimpses of her parents' painfully managerial childrearing suggest psychological problems there too). In the end, the person who'd been cool as a frozen baking product all series triumphed by not cracking up (in recent episodes he's managed to deal with catastrophe with aplomb such as failed technicals and the time his cake was about 2 inches square so he can obviously deal with anything). Even if the contestants are far nicer to each other than in most TV programs, this year Bake Off has been about who can stay calm under stress, not about who can make the nicest sugar butterflies.

Maybe we could have a spin-off with the vet and the goth killing animals and modelling their corpses in sugar.

Behave. The end game is that someone stresses so much over some choux pastry that they die on tele.

Thats what we all want.

Clean forgot this was on last night and managed to spoil it for myself by checking Facebook.

Sounds like I missed BINCAKE levels of psychological horror, I must catch up tonight.

That technical was bollocks. Souffles are cooking, not baking. Baking isn't just anything that goes in the oven.

Unfortunate to see Steph crumble in the final, but to be honest even if she was on her game it probably wouldn't have mattered. David's showstopper looked just about perfect.

(This was a very dumb finale showstopper task, by the way)

I look forward to the baked potato round next year. That really will be controversial.

Seemed the skill level was off a bit for this series. Was clear after the souffle there could only be one outcome.
Did any of them put boiling water in the bain marie? (maree?) Final was week four tier challemge.
Steph's chicken sandwich was really good tho.

Doesn't her necklace say 'Steff'?

Great fun. only seen the first few, but yeah, better than the adult version.
surely there can’t be 15 episodes? What are they going to do when they run out of children?

Edit: oh fuck. Didn’t realise there were different groups that do heats. Nice

Thanks for another useful summary daf.

When the BBC did a Junior Bake-Off it didn't work for me because A. Paul Hollywood wasn't allowed to be creepy, B. They weren't allowed to do any innuendo, and C. The kids were mostly ultra-competitive and serious like the ones on Junior Apprentice (which really was great).

The Channel 4 version sounds promising though, I'll give it a go at the weekend.

My support of Vaughan will be conditional on whether he pronounces his name normally or VORG-HAN.

Can't understand what Vaughan is saying at all. Unable to determine if he's stuck an R in his name or not.

Really seemed like Vaughan’s mum didn’t want to tell her son that his dessert was shite when he was explaining how she threw it in the bin to stop herself from eating it all.
She must have had a word with Prue who gave the same speil about how Vaughan needed to take it away otherwise she would eat the whole thing

Wasn't "Zak" already on the normal Bake Off this year? Nothing wrong with a second go at it, I suppose.
