Anyone else obsessed with The Great British Bake Off? I could listen to the soothing tones of Mary Berry praising a bake all day. We'll be making a medium and a small for our partner, and any extras will need to be discussed before sending (these are not required)! Let's share our disgust of soggy bottoms, our delight at who gets named star baker, and have fun crafting for this amazing show.

*PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to send a perishable item for your medium or your small (please check with your partner to make sure they'd appreciate this), your other item MUST be non-perishable; we want a keepsake from this swap that doesn't get eaten!  Cheesy


Some ideas to craft:
- woodburned mixing spoon/cutting board/etc
- decorated apron
- "Star Baker" embroidered patch
- festive British bunting to decorate one's kitchen like the baking tent
- shirt with funny GBBO quotes
- etched cookware
- crocheted hot dish carrier for your amazing bakes!
- edibles that will hold up in transit (no baked alaskas please!)

Working from home today and re-watching season 1. I think I've decided my kitchen needs a bunting. I did not put in that in my Q. Grin
