Every year, my twitter and Facebook feeds are full of #GBBO hashtags.The first time I saw them, I scratched my head and thought eh ? Gobby ? GBH ?! Then I saw it was all about cake and realised it was for The Great British Bake Off ! It's a programme I would never want to take part in - I love cooking for fun but I never strive for perfection and always go for taste over appearance so I'd be useless ! But if you've ever had a secret hankering to be on the box, read on !
I was contacted by Love Productions, the team who make the BBC programme, to say that they’ve just started accepting applications from people who’d like to take part in the 2015 series. They’re trying to get the news out to a variety of amateur bakers across the UK and asked me to help by spreading the word on my blog or to friends/family who could be interested.
There’s more information and the application form is available for download now at www.thegreatbritishbakeoff.co.uk Let me know if you apply - I'd love to see someone I know on the show !
