Personally, I'm having a terrible evening in the kitchen, involving an exploding microwave and some burnt potatoes, but hopefully our bakers will be faring a little better. This week is all about pies and tarts, which builds on the droolworthiness of the trifles and desserts of last week! There were two shock exits last week, so all the bakers are starting to realise they could go at any time, and as they always say, they're not ready for the journey to end just yet!

    Is that Brian Cox the actor, Brian Cox the American footballer or Brian Cox the space bloke?

    "That's been steeping for a couple of months." The preparation that goes into these things!

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:04

    ohhhh apple and marzipan...

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:07

    Apple and marzipan? Is marzipan an ingredient like that? I thought it was just the underlay for icing.

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:10

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:18

    Poor howard :(

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:19

    It does seem odd to bake things that you don't like. But they do such a variety of stuff, I guess there's bound to be stuff that's not to your taste. There definitely would be if I was doing it!

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:20

    i love that they get so emotional over baking :) baking is awesome

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:24

    Ah ha! thank you :)

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:26

    mum says you shouldnt cook the custard before it goes in the oven, i wonder how many of them know that...

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:29

    ahh she thought about how to get them out! clever!

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:30

    Ali's do not look very good at all!

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:31

    Actually... not many of them look good!

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:31

    wow! that looked like a really hard one

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:31

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:39

    <3 Mary

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:40

    heck of an admission on this show.

    she's obviously lying. she hasn't turned up with toast every week yet

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:40

    "i can't cook"

    baking and cooking is a bit different.. ?

  • Will^10/09/2013 at 19:40

    Pythagoras!! #maths

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:41

    oh wow!!!!! hmmmm

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:41

    baking and cooking is a bit different.. ?

    Baking is a type of cooking, so if you can bake, technically you can cook.

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:42

    Baking is a type of cooking, so if you can bake, technically you can cook.

    ah very true i suppose. I always class cooking as very savoury things..

    you cook dinner, you bake dessert.

    but i think that may just be me :)

  • Mr C10/09/2013 at 19:42

    you cook dinner, you bake dessert.

    you do.

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:42

    but i think that may just be me :)

    they are basically the same and an understanding of one affects the other tho, so i think i get it. :)

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:44

    sudden idea for dragons den: tasty tablecloths.

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:45

    uh-oh Sue is trying to get involved again... what will she squash this week?!

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:46

    How can it take half an hour to wash mushrooms??

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:46

    they are basically the same and an understanding of one affects the other tho, so i think i get it. :)

    I guess it's like how F1 is a type of motorsport. Baking is a type of cooking.

  • Steven Roy10/09/2013 at 19:47

    sudden idea for dragons den: tasty tablecloths.

    Every time I eat at a table with a cloth on it the table cloth ends the meal with taste all over it

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:47

    ah love a good motorsport analogy.

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:48

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:54

    I like Ali less this episode. He's too busy hoping other people do badly.

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:56

    aw yay Kimberly has done so well in the last few eps!

  • lou10/09/2013 at 19:57

  • Will^10/09/2013 at 19:57

    Badtimes, but he just didn't like pastry

  • Christine10/09/2013 at 19:57

  • Lukeh10/09/2013 at 19:59

    I bet Davros drives in and smooshes over everything because of that Dalek. He looks like he hates baking
