I didn't get an invitation to the second round of the GBBO auditions

Such is life - doesn't mean I am giving up baking - though I might find it hard to watch the series when it airs!

Yes, I have entered!

What began as a whim in the run up to Christmas has started to get serious.

I am not yet there - but I have at least had an audition (which is something most applicants didn't get.)

Apparently more than 1500 people applied, 120 will have been invited to the first auditions.  For this stage, everyone had to take along a sweet and a savoury baked item to be tasted by the judges.  On the day in question, it was none other than Mary Berry herself doing the tasting!  I will post details of my dishes shortly.
