The Great British Baking Show

Are you guys as into The Great British Baking Show (originally The Great British Bake Off) as I am? I know I’m not the only American to fall in love with this show recently. My coworkers and I have spoken at length about how soothing and likable it is.

It seemed necessary to show my appreciation by way of a pattern. This one features all the technical challenge bakes from Series 5. Does anyone else really want to try a slice of that Prinsesstårta? I sure do. If you know of a Twin Cities bakery that makes it, let me know!


Here’s hoping that Netflix gets the rights to the previous seasons.  I want to watch more fancy, complicated baked goods come into being, and get judged (politely) by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.  Here are all the technical challenges from the pattern individually:
