In that case I go for Jason, cute & able to bake. Looks don't last, cookin' do ;0)
Still want Ian to win though.

OK, I don't understand this Sweepstake thing
I thought we each had to plump for one we thought would win.

Now you're just being greedy Woodsprite, wanting Ian AND Jason

If I've misunderstood the principle of a DS Sweepstake (highly likely), then I apologies but otherwise, Jason's cakes are mine!

Sweepstake vote goes to Ian.

He was very lucky to stay in wasn't he.

Really not sure who will win. Possibly the older guy with blond hair (can't remember the names).

Jasons a cutie too ;0)
To be honest I'm annoyed that pretty face is still there, if this is truly about baking skills then he should be gone. Seems to me that Mary likes a pretty face and a nice ass too!


I think that he probably has a lot of skill, it's just that he can't organise himself.

But probably more importantly, this is a tv show, and he's good tv. Leaving aside whether he's pretty (doesn't do anything for me), he's interesting (drops cakes, can't get his tarts out), and if you accept he's got some skill, he could set the tv company up with a nice "underdog wins through" story,


Peter.

I loved Janet's posh plait, it looked wonderful.

I watched it this afternoon...just the sort of brainless gawping that was all I could manage, it was blooming hot here, and I was very tired!

I REALLY want to have a go at a bread basket... Never seen one of those before?

Oh no, Ians gone :0(. Thought it was a bit harsh tbh, especially given that in past weeks he's done well.

Only 3.5 hours for bread though? Andrew Weatley won't be pleased! I use his method and spread it over 2 or 3 days!! interesting salt discussion too given the bhf report today, does Paul like too much salt?!

Don't worry about me - it was the first one I've seen live

Before the month is out I must make macaroons - they're one of the few cakes/ biscuits I've never attempted. I wonder if they'd work using reconstituted dried egg white?

We've done brandy snaps by the thousand, though - for carnivals and bonfire parties, the essence of autumn night parties. They're fun and difficult at the same time.
