Inspired to Bake? #GBBO

Wow what a final on #GBBO last night!  Congratulations Nancy!!

All the finalists did so brilliantly well they would all have made worthy winners.

I’m going to give a special mention to Luis, as we both live in Poynton – it must be a hive of baking ability – hopefully third time lucky Poynton will conquer with a winner 😉  Luis’ blog is here
