Let's Get Technical - Great British Bake Off 2015 Cake Week

As we head into the fifth technical challenge of this year's Great British Bake Off I remember that I hadn't posted the challenge here for anyone who hasn't been following along on Twitter.

This year there is also the option of Facebook and Instagram and even a bit of periscope.

The challenge kicks off at 3pm AEST 

Week one was cake week and I managed to complete Mary Berry's Frosted Walnut Layer Cake with time to spare, though in hindsight that time could have gone into more cooling of the sponges and decoration.

Given that it's the Great British Bake Off I thought I should dress for the occasion, thankfully I did have this left over from a royal guard production of Dreamgirls.  

The fifty shades of caramel 

Ok stop taking photo's or it will be burnt! 

I must remember more time cooling = much prettier layers  

It's lovely having fans, thanks Lucy!  


  1. This makes me so hungry reading this!

  2. Oh, I love this post Jason. I can't wait to read the rest. I love following along on Sunday arvos. You've done a brilliant job on those toffee walnuts too. See you back here for bake 2.

    1. Thanks Fiona, it's quite fun to have a go at bakes I wouldn't probably just skip over if they were in a cookbook. Thanks for following along on Sundays, I'm hoping there won't be tears as the weeks progress!!
