    I think you'll actually find Jaffa cakes are "food of the devil".

    A good fig roll though, that's "fruit" without a doubt

    Years ago- when David Beckham played for Manchester United I had the pleasure of a day touring the football stadium and museum - a fact I have always remembered was that David liked a cup of tea and Jaffa cakes at half time - so they must be healthy for you!! They didn't do David Beckham any harm!

    Will you all be watching tonight??? (2019)

    I know this is an old thread, but I do like to dig up old threads! I couldn't open your picture though Fussy. Do the pictures disappear after some time?

    Well .... DD made us watch!

    I liked the children's birthday cakes and wouldn't have sent home the chap they did send home! However, I was also bored watching it!

    Oh we loved it! I really liked the chap who went home and thought the 20 year old lad should have gone really.

    Yep, I to thought it should of been the young lad ( who forgot to put the eggs in.... nerves) go. I enjoyed it but it was a bit too long an hours enough.I think there is one I think is going to be annoying to watch but I won’t say.

    Yes, I thought they should have sent home that young chap.

    I suspect I shall watch it, although DD will be dancing and won't get home till late, so will miss it, I expect we'll find it on catch up!

    I was listening to Sarah's webinar and so we recorded it and watched it slightly later - great because I can fast forward the adverts that way. It has given me the idea of getting DD a Bundt cake tin for her birthday/Christmas as she really liked the wreath cake.

    I actually think i deleted all my attachments. Though you have reminded me i havent made jaffa cakes in ages.

    I think Dan went instead of Jamie because of his raw fruit cake. Paul hollywood warned him increasing the fruit may lead to the cake needing longer to bake.

    I felt for Henry when his delicate little house broke both me and dd shouted noooooo.

    Maza the author, Robin Stevens of the murder series of book you recemmended replied to my tweet to her last night shes a big bake off fan. Dd was impressed this morning.

    Oh wow Fussy! DD must have been chuffed! We made her 'squashed fly' biscuits from one of the books. I also wrote an email to her which she replied to - I like that. I asked her about 'Mistletoe and Murder'. I wanted to know if it had a Father Christmas 'spoiler' in it before I bought the book.

    I was disappointed thati missed her book tour of the new "murder" book but as normal it came no where near here.

    Yes, the 'kindergarten' food was unimpressive for Bake Off.

    Interesting that the judges also had to 'tweak' the requirements for the Indian sweets too. DD loves the lady who always does Halloween themed food!

    I really couldn't decide if I liked Henry or not - but I really missed him this week. I missed his facial expressions!
