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!

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!

Today on Gin and Cake, we knead a ball of bready deliciousness with Episode Two, Season Two of The Great British Baking Show. We range far and wide with Wonder Woman, bees, Solid Gold, ninjas and Nicholas Nickleby, and still manage to talk about the show. By the time you're done, you will definitely know the muffin man. Don't worry, that will make sense in about 55 minutes.

So, grab a delicious beverage, break a few breadsticks, and enjoy Episode 13. It's Gin and Cake time!

Today on Gin and Cake, we launch ourselves into Season Two of The Great British Baking Show. In this cake-centric episode, we experiment with a new free discussion format (instead of the "live-watch" format we used in Season One), and manage to run into killer whales, a holy hand grenade, and a bit of the old timey wimey.

 

So, grab a delicious beverage, slap on the headphones, and savor a new season of baking goodness. It's Gin and Cake time!
