Gin and Cake

Gin and Cake is a live-watch exploration of one of the most weirdly popular reality shows on television: The Great British Bake-Off or, as it's known to us here in the US, The Great British Baking Show. In it, generally polite people compete to bake cookies and cake while wandering around a tent on a bucolic English estate, all in pursuit of the most fabulous prize imaginable — a cake plate. Absurd? Yes! Which is probably why we, like so many millions of other people, love it. In this biweekly podcast, we will comment, question, wax rhapsodic, and speculate wildly about things we could probably know if only we weren’t too lazy to look them up on the Internet. There's also a bunch of baking trivia. And a few Star Trek references, because that's never wrong. And we’re going to do it all while sipping delicious adult beverages, and we hope you’ll join us in that, as well. So mix that drink and have a listen. It's Gin and Cake time!

Hello and welcome to Gin and Cake, our biweekly podcast about the cultural wonder that is The Great British Baking Show!

Nov 15, 2017

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we kick off our review of Season Three of the Great British Baking Show. We'll discuss Betty and bakers, consider starfish arms and slightly stranger things, and ponder the unknowable enigma of nuts. And we'll say hello to a brand new host, who got through an entire episode without walking out, which was quite decent of her really.

So, grab a delicious beverage, put on your shiniest Seventies jumpsuit, and enjoy Episode 24. It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's special episode of Gin and Cake, we take a wee break from the show, ramble with Sharon to the shores of Caledonia, and chat about the cruelties of social media, the deliciousness of gin, and the elusive unicorns of Scotland. And then end up talking about the show anyway. Rather a lot, actually!

So, grab a delicious beverage, pile up a plate of McVitie's, and enjoy Episode 23. It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we take a slightly befuddled look back at Season Two of the Great British Baking Show. Along the way, we'll consider shenanigans and swallows' tongues, pay-per-view and poverty cuisine, bookies and the bowels of Hoover Dam. We'll answer the profound question, "Sorry, who were you again?" And we'll bid a fond farewell to more than a season as we peer into the future.

So, grab a delicious beverage, get a box of comfort biscuits, and enjoy Episode 22. It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we sink our teeth into sweet dough, along with a bit of biting at throw pillows, Welsh weirdness, bun cracks, revealing hotspots, and Tom Hardy's bottom. Nigel Farage is also mentioned, for which we apologize in advance.

We also announce a challenge contest for our Patreon that involves...actual merch!

So, grab a delicious beverage, seize a plumptious bun, and enjoy Episode 17. It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, it's time for biscuits and . . . traybakes? Which are exactly what they're called, come to find out! The same cannot be said for flapjacks, millionaires, and helter-skelters, but we sort it out. We also manage to chat about gendered food, delightful Daleks, Japanese industrial philosophy, and God's spaceship. Because of course we do.

So, grab a delicious beverage, crack open the cookies, and enjoy Episode 16. It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we get a wee bit discursive with superheroes, bookstores, brazen strumpets, saucy tarts, and the wholesome insanity of It's a Small World. We also manage to chat about Episode Four (Pies & Tarts) of Season Two of The Great British Baking Show, which is kind of amazing, really.

So, grab a delicious beverage, serve up a tasty piece of pie, and enjoy Episode 15. It's Gin and Cake time!
