Bake Off is back!
Bake Off is back and Shabby Store's range of marble cake stands are the ultimate accessories to flaunt your baking goods! Whether you are joining the baking hype and showing off your showstopper on Instagram, hosting an Afternoon Tea for 6 or taking part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning, Shabby Stores marble cake stands are the perfect stage to really show off.
Series 10 of the Great British Bake Off started last night, with new presenter Matt Lucas, joining Prue Leith, Paul Hollywood and Noel Fielding. The launch episode was 'Cake Week' which saw contestants challenged with a Signature Challenge of a Battenberg complete with homemade marzipan. Contestants created extravagant unique creations, including Lottie's Rhubarb and Custard Battenberg, Loreia's Bubblegum and Cream Soda Battenberg and the winning formula...Sura's Lemon and Orange Battenberg. If you are feeling brave we found a similar recipe here - why not give it a go!
Next up was the one we had all been waiting for, The Showstopper Challenge! Contestants were challenged with creating a 3D Celebrity Cake Bust, as ever a unique design concept that revealed some rather unique cakes! Tributes were made to Louis Theroux, David Bowie and David Attenborough, whilst there were some good attempts, there were also some baking disasters. Peter was crowned Star Baker with his ode to Sir Chris Hoy with a much more subtle, ‘witty’ Victorian Sponge sandwiched with Strawberry Jam and Whipped Cream, we found a similar recipe here!
