Roll up, roll up - it's cake time my fellow AnswerBankers.

Are we looking forward to people anxiously peering into hot ovens, the existential crisis of "is it ready yet?" nearly breaking them down entirely?

Of course we are!

Are we looking forward to the signature challenge, a swiss roll, going completely wrong and producing something ultimately sad but endearing to their character?

You bet!

So then, now is the time to prime your kettle for a nice cup of tea as we launch ourselves once more into the cakey cakey goodness of the Great British Bake Off.

This thread is for episode one, dedicated to "Cake". We've got a Swiss roll, a undisclosed "British classic" and a Classic Cherry cake to all go wonderfully wrong before our eyes.

This thread is designed for discussion of Episode 1 of the Great British Bake Off. I expect us to quickly form camps supporting one baker or another and discussing the pros and cons of their individual techniques.

That, and how nice the cakes look. Don't you fancy a cake now?

Here's the bakers for this series:

NOTICE TO GRUMPY PEOPLE: If you are posting here to complain about the Great British Bake Off being on again, how "boring" you find it, or to ask "what's the point" you will be suspended. This is fair warning. To be absolutely clear: we don't care what you think about GBBO :)

So, for the rest of us, let us be prepared at 8pm for what will surely be one of the finest moments in cake this year...

It's so good to have back on TV, brightens up a boring Wednesday. I think that the lady who was Star Baker is going to be difficult to beat (is it Nancy?). I enjoyed the sister programme with Jo Brand on Friday, but wonder if she can keep it entertaining up to the end. And hasn't Paul Rankin (chef) aged - I haven't seen him since Ready Steady Cook days.
