So did you spot me?

As I predicted my very short interview with Jo Brand on Thursday night's Extra Slice (10pm Chanel 4) never made the final edit but there were several audience shots where you could spot me.


And my "Noel" cake got a brief airing at the "Show us your bakes" part of the show, even if he didn't get selected for tasting... but I had a good time and it was lots of fun.


I could tell you all about the warm up guy and the risque jokes and the fact that Roisin Conaty actually had to spit out the broccoli cake... but in fact Rob has written such a brilliant account of the whole experience on his blog HERE, that you might as well read what he has to say and I can get on and bake some more cakes! If you read Rob's account you will know that in the holding room before the start of the show, we all had to taste our own cakes, supposedly to prove we weren't trying to poison anyone. I had to perform cranial surgery on my poor Noel cake, lifting a flap of liquorice hair so I could scoop out some of the cake underneath before replacing the hair, disguising the hole in his head!!


I had hoped that I might be able to add another "60 x 60" to my list if they had actually tasted my bake as one of the things I would like to do is bake a cake for someone famous, but alas it wasn't to be. Although there was always the risk someone famous might spit out my cake! So if any of you lovely readers know someone famous who would like me to bake them a cake... you know where to find me! Twenty two more things to do and only ten months left!

  1. I missed 'An extra slice' on Thursday, but will make sure I watch it on catch up. It sounds like a fab time was had by all. p.s. Can't help you with anyone famous!

  2. I saw you on 'An Extra Slice' and it certainly looked lots of fun. Your cake was very eye-catching. Maybe they didn't want to spoil the look of it by tasting :-(

  3. Certainly did spot you ('See the woman in pink? I know her'), and your cake, which looked so very good. I'm sure I know someone famous. Just can't remember who it is.

  4. Sounds like you had a great time despite the cranial surgery. Haven't watched Bake off yet. I know I should just so that I can argue from knowledge :). B x

  5. I saw you - and your lovely cake! Why on earth did they chose to eat the vicar's hideous broccoli cake when they could have nibbled on the lovely Noel?!?!

  6. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would 'choose' broccoli cake when there was liquorice on offer!!!!!

  7. I haven't had a chance to watch GBBO or Extra Slice but I am hoping to find time soon. I'll be binge-watching several episodes in one evening, no doubt. I am glad you enjoyed yourself, you look very happy on the photos above. I am afraid I don't know anyone famous unless you count scientists with a world reputation? Niche celebrities I guess. xx

  8. I need to watch bake off. Will try and catch up this week. It all sounded great fun, perhaps minus the surgery :o).
