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!

Apr 26, 2018

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we travel back in time to the gorgeous formality of the Victorian Age in Season Three, Episode Seven, of the Great British Baking Show.

We'll acclaim a Beeton, mull ras el hanout and roadkill, suffer a few Downton flashbacks, befuddle over French Bavarians, and gush about jello maps and gelatin. So much gelatin.

Sharon will also curse a lot about Flora, but in a loving way, and we'll all get a life lesson from vacuum cleaners.

So, grab a delicious beverage, settle in for Dickens-length discourse, and enjoy Episode 30 (THIRTY!). It's Gin and Cake time!

On today's episode of Gin and Cake, we wander between the buttery layers of pastry in Season Three, Episode Six, of the Great British Baking Show.

We'll take the Wayback Machine to the Eighties AND the Seventies, talk Terror, shudder at squid ink, fear The Jungle, and consider the tyranny of musical chairs. We'll also rank sandwiches, and wonder why anyone wants to eat Pine Sol.

Also, our Patreon tee contest has re-opened, but on the down-low, for naughty reasons. Shhhh!

So, grab a delicious beverage, poach your eggs properly, and enjoy Episode 29. It's Gin and Cake time!
