The Great British Bake Off was a rollercoaster of rage and devastation

Is it a cake or what?

THE GREAT BRITISH Bake off kicked off tonight.

The twelve contestants were set challenges to bake a madeira cake, a walnut cake, and a gateaux. Besides the usual innuendo and scathing Mary Berry expressions, one contestant in particular immediately grabbed everyone’s attention.

‘The guy with the hat’, Stu.

So smug. So hat-wearing.

People immediately flew into flaming balls of rage

When it was revealed that Stu was in a band, things just got worse

But everyone could agree that he needed to cease this behaviour

Rather fittingly, Stu was the first to be booted off after he failed to impress the judges with his showy baking

No love was lost.

But it wasn’t all elation to the rage. We still had this to get over


The absolute horror.

Contestant Dorret’s show stopper literally melted when she tried to take it out.


There wasn’t a dry eye in the house

Sue Perkins kept her calm, reminding her that it’s just a cake. She didn’t agree



It’s OK Dorret. The internet needed a new meme anyway

So all that’s left is to answer the question…

Is it just a cake, or not?
