The Great Comic Relief Bake Off: Ep. 1

“Who doesn’t like a good cake analogy?”

Erin Morgenstern

It’s not the real Bake Off, but it’s close enough for now.

The Great Comic Relief Bake Off is a celebrity special, so it’s a little different from the proper show. The bar is lower, the contestants are chattier, Mary Berry is nicer (if that is actually possible), the bottoms are soggier. As it were. Joanna Lumley is a delight, Dame Edna Everidge is profoundly, deeply irritating, Jennifer Saunders is funny in a matter-of-fact kind of way. It’s all very Bake Off-y; Britishly humorous, mildly competitive, lashings of chocolate. This is exactly what you need for your lunch break. And possibly all lunch breaks ever.

(Sorry, I’m kind of tired today.)
