It was a historic evening at The Great British Bake Off.
No, not because Manon the word & # 39; f ** ked & # 39; said.
It did not take Channel 4 long? Two episodes in the second series and we had already swear in the Showstopper! #PrayForMaryBerry
There is a scoop for everything: Manon made history with the first & # 39; f ** ked & # 39; in the Great British Bake Off-tent on Tuesday
It was not because there was also a cake in a skirt – a grass skirt, complete with a wreath of flowers. What else would it wear on a Hawaiian Pina Colada Cake ?!
Or Jon, the participant who confessed that he is not looking forward to Cake Week on the premises: 'tarts are not really my thing.' (About the big British bake away! What is he doing there?)
Like the iconic spectacle in which the upper half of the Eiffel Tower fell off, they barely received a mention.
Well done: the moment came after Paul Hollywood – of course – when his Holiness blessed THREE Bakers with one of his legendary handshakes (his previous record of two destructive)
No, the milestone moment was a contribution from Paul Hollywood – of course – when his Holiness blessed THREE Bakers with one of his legendary handshakes from Paul Hollywood (his previous record of two shattered).
The handshakes he first donated to Rahul and then Ruby were also no ordinary handshakes.
I've never given a handshake for a Showstopper before! & # 39 ;, Paul announced modestly after he had tasted the chocolate cake from Rahul, waited for dramatic effect and strictly early, Rahul, can you are you here to come here? & # 39;
Pressing palms: the handshakes he gave, first Rahul and then Ruby were also no ordinary handshakes
Rahul was still wondering what he could have done wrong to earn this violation of the GBBO protocol when Hollywood chased the young man from his suffering and suddenly put his hands on him as the judge congratulated the winner at Crufts (the owner, not the dog).
He also did it with a handshake with two hands – the type that mainly uses false politicians.
& # 39; That's a fantastic cake! & # 39; Hollywood finally declared when the applause had subsided.
Congratulations: Rahul was still wondering what he had done wrong to earn this violation of the GBBO protocol when Hollywood chased the young man from his suffering, suddenly putting his hands as the judge congratulates the winner on Crufts
What a time to live! It was one of those events where we will always remember where we were – such as hearing the Brexit result or the Susan Boyle moment & # 39; (possibly better).
A piece of TV history so memorable that he repeated two minutes later (on someone else).
Rahul certainly deserved it. His & # 39; chocolate orange layer cake & # 39; was even better than a spectacular Terry's Chocolate Orange with amazing swirls in the collar and huge shards of chocolate bursting from the top.
Impressed: & # 39; I've never given a handshake for a Showstopper before! & # 39 ;, Paul announced modestly after he tasted Rahul & Chocolate Collar Cake
Other unusual, alluring, delicacies were Antony's Indian Bakewell Tart & Rubin's Boozy Black Forest Gateaux & # 39; s & # 39; s & # 39; and Kim-Joy & # 39; s Pandan Chiffon Cake & # 39 ;, which Paul was not a fan of.
& # 39; So what is a Pandan sheet? & # 39; He asked her as he picked up the Pandan sheet and smelled it. (It is a sheet of Paul.)
& # 39; That's disgusting! & # 39; He snarled, & # 39; do you know how that is? I just cut my front yard! & # 39;
What a humor.
Earned: Rahul certainly deserves it. His & # 39; chocolate orange layer cake & # 39; was even better than a spectacular Terry & # 39; s Chocolate Orange
Delightful: his creation was decorated with amazing swirls in the collar and huge shards of chocolate that erupted from the top
& # 39; I like it! & # 39; Noel Fielding later contradicted Paul in the tasting. & # 39; That's just pond water! & # 39;
What a crazy person.
Some ingredients sounded only to mouth water without even being baked in cakes: pineapple jam, rhubarb jam, soft Spanish nougat, Yuzu curdled milk.
As far as Briony & # 39; s Showstopper is concerned, Noel Fielding has let us know: she needs to fry three layers of chocolate fudge and salted caramel cake and then fill them with salted caramel and vodka butter cream. – the sentence that I have been waiting for all my life. (& # 39; Vodka butter-cream & # 39;?! Who knew?!)
After we & # 39; 3-D Biscuit Selfies & # 39; had made in the final of last week, were probably the most interesting creations real – some say, historical – figures: namely Jackson Pollack, Claude Monet, Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

For the technical challenge, Prue Leith bore the competition by baking une gateaux verte: a pistachio Genovese sponge topped with fondant made from spinach puree. (Soon you will come to a Greggs in the neighborhood.)
& # 39; This is absolutely ridiculous! & # 39; Sputtered Terry, trying to make a terrible messy mess of green things.
& # 39; This is not going well! & # 39; Predicted Karen – correct, as it turned out later when she left the ship & # 39; and threw her mixture into the trash.
Putting the glove down: for the technical challenge, Prue Leith bore the competition by baking une gateaux verte: a pistachio Genovese sponge topped with a fondant made of spinach puree
Briony on the other hand enjoyed the experience of baking a cake with such an unusual ingredient.
& # 39; It smells like health, is not it?! & # 39; she said enthusiastically.
& # 39; Or cabbage! & # 39; Noel Fielding responded, suggesting that he does not eat much spinach.
The weirdest Chocolate Collar cake (or a cake) was undoubtedly from Manon.
& # 39; When I was an au pair, I took care of this little girl who loved dressing up like a princess. This cake is for her. & # 39;
In the room above her almond castle, she put the little almond prince and the almond princess.
Is that me and Sandi?! & # 39; Noel cleverly distracted, possibly by recognizing his horrible new hairstyle for Child-Catcher.
& # 39; That's fantastic! & # 39; Voted Sandi.
& # 39; Here you sleep fast! & # 39; Manon told Noel pointing to his Mini Me (in almond sponge), which was indeed on the bed. & # 39; And that's Sandi. She's gone crazy because you're too late! & # 39;
Is there anyone else who feels that Manon has problems, that she is working on it? Not by playing with dolls houses as she might have when she was younger by using houses and people made from cake?
Another psychological sub-plot to watch out for is the internet theory that Paul Hollywood is attracted to one of the bakers in particular – and that Ruby Tandoh of this year is Ruby Bhogal.
(Granted, Ruby is a great name.)
The biggest indicator this week was Hollywood's reaction to Ruby's creations that were disproportionate – good or bad: a classic giveaway.
Hair & # 39; Boozy Black Forest Traybake & # 39; in the Signature Challenge was not impeccable, but Hollywood's verdict was devastating – so provocative.
& # 39; It looks like a forest floor! & # 39; He growled.
& # 39; Okay, & # 39; snapped Ruby, clearly disturbed.
& # 39; It is a mess. & # 39;
A bit much when he just agreed that Briony & # 39; s tray & # 39; horrible & # 39; but she reassured her: "I honestly do not care what it looks like. It is absolutely delicious. & # 39;
& # 39; I always expected Paul to file a complaint, & # 39; Ruby remarked afterwards. & # 39; But it & # 39; call a forest floor & # 39; He is fierce! & # 39;
The Jackson Pollack-like & # 39; collar & # 39; Ruby's decorated showstopper was either a rather weak tribute to the great American painter (as she claimed) or a load of old pollackets designed to apologize for being convenient. (Too boring and clear, without Pollack & # 39; s characteristic multicolored splashes.)
The Ruby spider who did this was bordering on the genius – actually arguing that making a cake on the Bake Off than forging a career / reputation in the art world.
Jackson Jackson would probably just beat it, but he is not convicted! & # 39; She insisted and explained why she had not decorated the collar at all.
Fortunately for Ruby, Paul Hollywood, who was so interested in Jackson Pollack and her real sponge, was delightful.
I could eat here for an hour! & # 39; Purred Prue Leith, stuck in (a pretty big compliment).
& # 39; Come here Ruby! & # 39; Grinned Hollywood and came in for a handshake.
I am very happy with Paul's handshake, & # 39; Ruby considered afterwards. & # 39; I'm glad that someone is in the bag and I would never take that back. & # 39;
Then her face lit up when she said: & # 39; But I wanted to impress Prue! & # 39;
A truly historic dissonance from Paul Hollywood and his handshake on The Great British Bake Off.
