The Great British Bake Off not only produces some great cakes and bakes, but also some great facial expressions from Mary Berry and the gang

Did you catch the Great British Bake Off last night? Of course you did, how silly of us to ask.

Then you’ll of course know that there are few things in this world which are greater than the 3D bread sculpture of a bloomin’ lion that Paul made!
bake off paul lionSerisouly, it was grrrreat – so great that it got the Bake Off’s first ever special commendation. Even Paul Hollywood loved it, and he’s a hard man to please when it comes to all things bread-related.

It was a case of LOAVE actually between the two Pauls last night.

But one thing that nearly surpassed the greatness of the lion, were the facial expressions that were on show during the show.
Mary Berry and the Bake Off gang aren’t ones to hide their feelings, and we’re so glad they don’t, because it makes for some great screen grabs that we’re going to start using as reactions and replies in messages. Like an emoji if you will.

First there was Dorret, who was so pleased that she rememberd how to turn on her oven, after Mary and Flora had both forgotten to before.

Mat who was a bit ‘oh crikey!’ over the fact it was bread week…

bake off flora What happens when you make a cornucopia of bread, filled with bread, being surrounded with bread, and supported up by bread Alvin?
bake off alvinYou realise you may have made a bit TOO much bread…  DOUGH-verload as Mat would say. But hey, we’re not complaining! Pass us the butter will you please?

And what reaction do you give when you’re being told someone’s making the Brighton Pavilion out of bread and curry?

And then there’s Nadiya. Oh Nadiya, how we love you – the queen of facial expressions!

Whether it’s not being too impressed that Paul Hollywood if prodding your baguette…
