Oh, Bake Off – The Savidge Reads Advent Calendar Day 5

I have been thinking something along the lines of ‘oh, bake off’ for the last three days since the possibly now over-mentioned virus hit my computer on Friday first thing in the morning. You see not only have I officially lost everything that I had on my machine until then, it has also taken me until now, well within the last 20 minutes, to get all the software and everything uploaded and updated (over 900 updates, seriously??) to the point where the computer works. Enough of that, you want to know what is tucked away as today’s treat don’t you, and the emphasis on today’s give away (don’t forget there is a give away of some books here, and another here which I have belatedly posted) is ‘treat’ as we are going cake and bake tastic!!

One of the highlights of my year has been discovering the joys of The Great British Bake Off on the telly. Who would have known watching some amateur chefs cooking in a marquee with Mel and Sue and being judged by supreme bakers Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood (who I would like to become my personal chef please) would have become a favourite weekly moment for a while? Well it did and so I wanted to share this joy in some small way.

So along with the lovely BBC Books I am giving three of you the chance to win a copy of ‘The Great British Bake Off: How To Bake: The Perfect Victoria Sponge and Other Baking Secrets’ as a treat (my aunty is very jealous). Sadly this can only go UK wide but if you have someone who can pass it on, or a P.O. Box, then do still enter oh and don’t forget the previous two international book give aways. Anyway, all you have to do is tell me what your favourite cake is and why? You have until 11am GMT on December the 8th – Good luck!
