Go, Ruby! You're into The Great British Bake Off final - express yourself
So last night’s Great British Bake Off semi-final was fraught with emotion.
It all revolved around a rather tricky Charlotte Royale cake.
Which is, by the way, slices of swiss roll that form a dome around a set fruit custard called a Bavarois’.
And a Bavarois is a delicate cream made with custard that’s thickened with gelatin’, FYI.
Oh, and the cake looks a bit like a brain.
The task was so hard that it reduced my fave Bake Off contestant, Ruby Tandoh, to tears.
Don’t worry, Ruby – I think we’d all have cried. Bava-whaaaa?!

Now, cheer up, love – you pulled it off in the end and you’re through to the final!
