This week has been a busy one with it being the final of the Bake Off, at last we can talk about the winner, it’s been a long, long time holding that secret. My friend Caroline had a party at her house and we all took bakes, it was a great night, even though I was shattered having been on the 5:25 bus to BBC Radio Leeds. (Glad it was radio and not telly, at that time of morning my make up bag failed to get me camera ready!)
I couldn’t stay out and party too late as it was Extra Slice filming the next day down at television centre and I had to make myself as presentable as possible for that.
I had got myself a new red animal print suit and some shiny boots, so I felt the part. I was chosen to present Kim Joy with her special cake at the end of her slot, the cake was so heavy I was worried I might go flying due to those shiny new boots, I held myself together and did OK.
It was just great all twelve bakers re-united, we had a lovely meal provided somewhere in Notting Hill. I bailed out early and went back to a very fancy pants hotel, the other bakers stayed up late and made the most of it. It was the icing on the cake of an incredible year, I got home mid afternoon the next day, then I got to watch the episode on Friday in the comfort of my living room, what a week it was!
