Chelsea New Zealand’s Hottest Home Baker – Season 3, Episode 2
Holy Moly! The claws sure came out tonight! I can’t quite get my head around how mean and yet how confident Rose was on the show tonight. My blog is not quite the forum to repeat the things that were yelled from the couch at her… but Twitter and Facebook statuses seem to agree. And we have to accept that a shows producer can edit things together any way they want. I’m sure we haven’t got the full story.
Tonight’s ‘OUCH’ award definitely goes to Rose “Everyone loves a good stuff up, I think Hayley will do that well!” oh and then the laughing…
I’m sure everyone could hear their mothers in their ears “If you haven’t got anything nice to say…”
Ok, the cat fighting aside, I think Hayley did the right thing by totally owning that her decorating was a mare this time. I’m glad her cake stood up against scrutiny in the end.
The AMAZEBALLS award goes to Esme again, not because she won but for Deans comment ” almost as good as mine ” – woweee!
And the quote of the night from my couch award goes to this little gem – yelled out just after they described a cake as “Beautiful & Luscious” to which she-who-won’t-be-named yelled “JUST LIKE HIS EYES!”
There seems to be a lot of “I could do better” going on out there in comment land and I have to keep myself from saying that exact thing. But I don’t because I can’t imagine being in the scenario they are! Hello national telly! pressure much? Let alone 2 hours, again with those bright lights and then no control over the theme. I honestly think that even if I pulled a theme out of a hat at home, and timed myself, I don’t think I’d be able to pull it off… Sounds like another blog post to me.
In my experience, baking with raw sugar is OK as long as you’ve got a wet enough recipe. There didn’t seem to be too much trouble using the Chelsea Raw Sugar though – I was expecting a few more non-decorating related disasters.
From my Judgey McJudgePants position on my couch, I managed to get 7 of the ingredients – how did you do? Man, water seems so obvious but I don’t think anyone got it.
This episode might not of had the most impressive baking but it certainly was drama filled!
What did you think? How would have you handled getting laughed at?
