This summer was crazy hot. Britain served up a chart-busting heatwave that wasn't too far off Portugal's dreamy weather, well...dreamy for some but certainly not our bakers! Last night's Cake Week episode showed the temperature rising in the tent as contestants were challenged to work with chocolate... not ideal. The episode also broke Bake-Off records for the first EVER showstopper handshake, and it was met by the cutest reaction we’ve seen on the show! That’s why we’ve made Star Baker Rahul our BAE of the Week.
BAE of the Week
As overheard in Cake Angels HQ, this Rotherham-based Research Scientist is cuteness overload and we all just want to pick him up and put him in our pocket (then possibly point him to the kitchen to get baking)! We too were absolutely delighted when the first ever showstopper Hollywood Handshake landed over his beautiful cake
...especially when he walked up to the judge's table thinking Paul had found a cocktail stick in it.
And we think we can all relate to this guy, I mean... we've all had the same thoughts, right?
But while we were all jumping for joy for Rahul’s Cake Week success, we couldn’t help but notice the Hollywood handshake was everywhere in this week’s episode (what’s that all about?!). We applaud Twitter for sprinkling some sass on the Handshake Hour. Paul Hollywood be like...
Either way, receiving one is a big deal to contestants and we can’t help but cheer them on – we’re all suckers for the Hollywood Handshake effect.
Terry is still our Ride or Die
This guy was our BAE of the week, last week, but we can’t stop loving his daring approach to bakes, a love that BuzzFeed agreed will ultimately shatter our hearts into pieces. It was this week’s collapsing Chocolate Eiffel Tower that has us all in sweats for Terry’s safety in the competition.
It’s true. We’ve caught feelings for Terry and we just need to protect him from his own baking disasters before he leaves our screens for good! Terry, Cake Angels have your back, let’s smash Bread week boo.
Talking about bread week… anyone else?
We’re with you girl – jeans firmly undone.
We're not over it, Noel
The launch of Bake Off last week introduced us to Noel’s new look and one week later it’s still the talk of Twitter. Even with him running around the tent dressed as Marie Antoinette and lifting spirits during the heated affair of Cake Week, we couldn’t take our minds off the lack-of-locks.
So that’s it for another week of Bake Off! We have loved reading your reactions and a massive congrats to Rahul again for being our BAE-ker of the week.
